Why It’s Cool: One mile long and 30 feet wide, the garden-lined Bricktown Canal curves through a historic district of restored red brick warehouses, cafés, parks, and shops. Water-taxi captains share local history while delivering passengers to the Oklahoma Land Run Monument. This dramatic series of bronze sculptures depicts life-size horses and pioneers in covered wagons racing west to stake out homesteads.

Don’t Miss: The American Banjo Museum spotlights Oklahoma’s homegrown genre, Red Dirt Music, and features replicas of early banjos that slaves crafted plus intricately decorated instruments from the 1920s.
