Visit the Oklahoma City Zoo
There’s nothing like strolling through the zoo on a pleasant spring day, and we have a great zoo here locally. The Oklahoma City Zoo is home to over 1,900 animals from around the world. In the spring, the zoo comes alive with blooming flowers and baby animals, making it a great place for families to visit.
Explore the Myriad Botanical Gardens
Another relaxing afternoon includes a visit to the Myriad Botanical Gardens. The Myriad Botanical Gardens is a popular spot for locals and visitors alike. In the spring, the gardens burst into color with thousands of blooming flowers and trees. Be sure to check out the Children's Garden, which features a splash pad and interactive exhibits.
Attend the Festival of the Arts
The OKC area has all sorts of festivals throughout the year that are worth checking out. One to put on your calendar this spring is the Festival of the Arts. This festival is a beloved annual event that takes place in downtown OKC. The festival features live music, art exhibits, and food from local vendors. It's a great way to experience the city's vibrant arts scene.
Walk or Bike the Oklahoma River Trail
If you like to experience an area by getting out on the trails, you will be pleasantly surprised by the OKC area’s trail system. Be sure to meander along the Oklahoma River Trail. It is a scenic route that runs along the Oklahoma River. In the spring, the trail is lined with blooming trees and wildflowers. It's a great way to get some exercise while taking in the beauty of the season.
Take a Brewery Tour
After a long day strolling through the springtime beauty, why not cap the day off by grabbing a beer? OKC has a growing craft beer scene, with several breweries offering tours and tastings. Some popular options include Anthem Brewing, Stonecloud Brewing, and Prairie Artisan Ales.

Spring is the start of baseball season, and the Oklahoma City Dodgers offer a fun and affordable way to catch a game. The team plays at the Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark, which is located in the heart of the city's entertainment district.
