Good history lesson about early Oklahoma. Lived in state many, many years and had never visited before. Went with friends from Ohio.
great western stores, Cattlemans steakhouse is wonderful and lots of history in that place. the stockyards are interesting to see when there is a sale going on as you can walk out over the cattle in the stockyards and look down on them. many western stores from leather goods to hats to western wear
We stayed in a hotel just 10 minute drive from the Stockyard. We were surprised by the number of western shops in the Stockyard. Look for the right price visit all the shops and get a good deal by comparing the prices.
This was the least interesting part of our day exploring OKC. Just a strip of old stores selling western wear and some themed gifts. The stockyards themselves were just there.....no interpretive information. Unless you are there to see the actual cattle, that part may be of interest.

We strolled about town for a while, checked out a few shops and pondered a pair of cowboy boots. While we passed on the boots, we weren't disappointed in our detour. Next time we'll try the famous Cattleman Restaurant!
Had heard of it and it wasn't at the top of my list for okc, but I am so glad I didn't miss it. The stockyard itself was so neat to see and the downtown area had great shops and friendly people. And if you need a pair of boots this is the area to go to. Don't miss it.
We ate in the Cattleman restaurant which is steeped in history! We even got the privilege of meeting Jack Webb, a local cowboy-artist who is featured in the Cowboy Museum! Jack owns an alley-sized gallery across the street from the restaurant! Oh, the steaks at the restaurant melt in your mouth like butter!! And their local beer, Double Deuce, is... More
