What to Do in Oklahoma This Summer

by Shannon on June 10, 2010

Humm.. if you are not playing summer league Baseball everyday this summer, Like ME, then you may have some time to check these fun inexpensive summer  fun ideas out!

OKC ZOO in June- (there are 3 Tuesdays left) “Wild Tuesdays Storytime Safaris are back at the Oklahoma City Zoo! Children ages 11 and under will enjoy fascinating stories, a meet-and-greet with a Zoo keeper or naturalist, a craft activity and a free juice drink. Story time sessions take place at 9:30 and 10:30 a.m. at Grandma’s Porch in the new Children’s Zoo and are hosted by volunteers from the Junior League of Oklahoma City.” quoted from  www.okczoo.com

OKC ZOO- Beginning July 7,  Wednesdays in the month of  July and August, guests can get a  special retro rate pricing of $1 for Zoo admission! There will also be $1 rides and concession specials, in the past it was cheap hot dogs, pop corn and pop! Check out Oklahoma City Zoo‘s Website for more details and happenings this summer.

Martin Nature Park- FREE Closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. Located in the Middle of the city, near Mercy Hospital off Memorial Rd. Check out more details at there website. GO HERE.
So, if you have never been, it is quite a nature park. Water shoes would be good to bring so you can walk in the creek and water area. There are tons of fish and turtles to feed in the water as well. You can bring “fish food” like dog or cat food to feed them. Or you can buy food at the food dispensers for .25 (I think)

Sam Noble Museum- (in Norman) FREE days in June. Saturday June 12 and Saturday June 26. Go here to  Sam Noble Museum for more details! I have never been, but here it is truly amazing. OU students and Children under 5 free all the time! Regular price $5 adults and $3 for Children up to 17 years of age. Not a bad price.

Edmond Historical Muesum- Located on Boulavard around 9th street? Near the old “Rocket Ship Park” FREE, and they have a fun Childrens area with art area, Jail, Grocery Store, home and Train area (wooden trains like Brio and Thomas) Can’t remember when they are closed. I think it may be on Mondays. Not sure though.

Go here for list of Spraygrounds in OKC area.

Then there are your regular Parks and activities. The only bad thing is that the equipment gets so HOT so you have to go early or late.

Have fun this summer, wear sunscreen.. and drink your water!

Thank you so much for posting this! I didn't know about the free days at the Sam Noble Museum – which I've wanted to visit for awhile now. So excited to go tomorrow with my family!
