For those of us who have lived in the Oklahoma City area for most of our lives, our fine city may not seem like a hot vacation destination. However, there are some locations in OKC that claim to be tourist attractions. Check out the Worst Tourist Attraction nominees and vote after the jump.
I remember that when I was in college, Bricktown was kind of a cool place to hang out. Now, it just seems like it’s full of elderly people riding the boats during the day and drunk kids being annoying as hell at night. With the addition of such gems as Bass Pro, Sonic, Toby Keith’s, and a new McDonald’s, the downslide of Bricktown is now complete.
Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum
The Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum actually has some nice galleries and historical artifacts. They lose major points, however, for changing their name from the Cowboy Hall of Fame.
I’ve been to Frontier City twice in my life. Both times with dates who turned out to be a-hole tools. So, yeah, that place sucks. Probably the only people who drive to Oklahoma City to check it out are from Tulsa or Kansas.
Science Museum Oklahoma
What is now called “Science Museum Oklahoma” is known to most of us as the Omniplex. Their new logo claims that it’s “not the same old Omniplex.” Unfortunately, it is the same old omniplex. From the mock TV set to the earthquake house and the mirror maze, the exhibits haven’t changed much since I first visited 20 years ago.
Softball Hall of Fame
The ASA Softball Hall of Fame is located in Oklahoma City’s Adventure District along with the Zoo, Remington Park, and the Omniplex. I’m not sure what is so adventurous about wandering around a building looking at pictures of obscure softball players that no one has ever heard of.
