Oklahoma City deals and free attractions
As the capital and largest city of Oklahoma, Oklahoma City is home to a wide array of attractions to make your vacation entertaining and memorable. It's separated into several districts, from downtown through Bricktown, which you can explore easily with the help of an Oklahoma City rental car from Thrifty Car Rental, which offers you a variety of Oklahoma City deals on transportation. And while you're in town, be sure to take advantage of these top attractions, both of which are free:
Oklahoma City National Memorial
Hop in your Oklahoma City car rental and drive down Harvey Avenue to get to the Oklahoma City National Memorial. This moving site commemorates the victims of the tragic bombing of April 1995, which took place when Timothy McVeigh parked a truck containing explosives outside the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building. Nearly 170 people died due to this senseless act, and you can learn more about it by exploring the in-site museum and taking a moment of silence to appreciate those who lost their lives.
Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art
Use your Oklahoma City car rental
to drive to one of the most renowned academic art museums in the country: the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art, which is run by the University of Oklahoma and is free to the public. The institution houses about 16,000 permanent works of art from Asian, European and Native American masters that span a wide array of mediums, including sculpture, painting and photography. In the permanent exhibits, you'll find pieces by huge names such as Georgia O'Keeffe and Vincent van Gogh. While you're here, be sure to check out the famed Weitzenhoffer Collection of French Impressionism as well as the museum's stunning Southwest art display.
