Oklahoma City is a great place to live if you’re relocating to a luxury apartment for a new job. You'll find an abundance of restaurants, attractions and community events to fill your free time and keep you from getting bored as you settle in. In this city nicknamed "The Big Friendly," there’s always something to do or see around town. 

The city is full of historic places to visit and is host to all kinds of events and attractions to keep you busy. Here are a few of our favorite things about Oklahoma City.

Complimentary Wi-Fi

Many of the city's restaurants, cafés, bookstores and libraries offer free Wi-Fi for their patrons. These are just a few places that offer this service, but there are many more around the city as well so you can stay on top of your business while you do other things. So, settle in with a cup of steaming Café Americano while you check your email, post on social media sites and send documents online.


Just like many other cities, Oklahoma City is home to many fast food places, and has some incredible fine dining restaurants. Cattleman's Steakhouse, located in the Stockyards City area, is a popular restaurant with a western theme. You have to try their signature dish, the Lamb fries. If you're looking for a restaurant with a view of the city, try Vast located in the Devon Tower, one of the city's tallest skyscrapers. There are even many restaurants that welcome pets.


If you like to browse through museums, you'll love the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum, the Oklahoma Railway Museum, the Oklahoma City Museum of Art and the Museum of Osteology, a museum devoted to the study of bones.


The Myriad Botanical Gardens, Oklahoma City Zoo, Oklahoma AquariumWhite Water Bay, Springlake Amusement Park and H&H Shooting Sports are a few fun places to visit in OKC. Check their websites for dates and hours of operation as well as admission prices.


Besides the Oklahoma State Fair, there are music concerts, horse shows and rodeos, annual events, and family activities to entertain young and old. 

For more events check the Oklahoma City Gazette, Slice Oklahoma City Magazine, and the Metro Family calendar to plan some fun things to attend or places to visit.

Oklahoma City has everything you need to survive and thrive. With all the great restaurants, attractions, affordable housing and top-notch schools in the area, you'll be happy to call this place home. At Springs Apartments, we welcome questions and are always ready to help new residents get settled in their new apartment home.
