There are tons of places to see! First of all I highly recommend checking out Bricktown! There are tons of wonderful restaurants there from fine dinning to the casual bar and grill. Also take a water taxi ride when you are down there, very relaxing and beautiful at night. You can go to this site for more info:
Here are some other suggestions for things to see:
Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World
200 Bass Pro Drive, Oklahoma City, www.basspro.com, (405) 218-5200
Attention all hunters, campers and fishing experts. Rocks from northeastern Oklahoma imprinted with the marks of deer hooves are among the rustic touches which make the Bass Pro Shops a must see attraction for Bricktown visitors. Over 104,000 square feet of outdoor equipment are within your reach under this facility's roof. Be sure to allow yourself enough time to explore and discover all the useful gear that will enhance those outdoor skills.

Oklahoma City National Memorial and Memorial Museum

Built as a memorial to the tragic bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building, you will stand in reverence in the grassy setting overshadowed by the towering bronze gates where the time of the explosion is permanently emblazoned. You can study the individual markers, created in memory of the victims as well as explore the segment of chain-link fence where you may leave a personal memento of your visit, as so many others have done. The Memorial Museum, inside a portion of the Journal-Record Building, provides a stunning reenactment of April 19, 1995, and honors all 168 Oklahomans who lost their lives.

On this little tree lined street you will find painters, potters, photographers, writers and actors. Within the two blocks of the Paseo you can visit stained glass works, a pottery studio, watch a painter at work, see a performance of a children's theater group, have dinner and shop. This colorful village hosts an annual art festival every Memorial Day weekend.
Water Taxi of Oklahoma

ha!ha!ha!ha! what a laugh but one must feel sorry for these people 1) Do they think that by going to church every sunday will save them?-----no way--- ask them where in the bible it says 'thou shalt not have a tattoo ? 2) have they not learnt that God is an all loving and forgiving God? because if they havent then they wasting their time attending church 3) Jesus told us to love one another NOT insult others. 4) when you got married it is said as part of your vows"What God has joined together let no man put asunder" so where ever your husband is you will be with him eternally and I BET HE IS NOT IN HELL you will meet again in HEAVEN GOD BLESS YOU and please forgive those stupid people
