Pride Journey Summer Getaway: Oklahoma City

Every destination has a story and Oklahoma City’s story is defined by an openness and enterprising nature. As a young and diverse city, there are always new opportunities on the horizon in the Modern Frontier.


The Boathouse District along the Oklahoma River offers some of Oklahoma City’s more popular ways to spend time outdoors, enjoy views of the downtown skyline and get active. Located within walking distance of the Bricktown Entertainment District, RIVERSPORT has expanded to become a mecca for outdoor adventures. With the new additions of Surf and Ski OKC, RIVERSPORT is the first facility in the world to offer snow skiing, surfing and whitewater rafting all in one location. Whitewater rafting, tubing and surfing all open on May 8 for the summer season, with Ski OKC opening on Memorial Day weekend.


Go wild this summer at the Oklahoma City Zoo and see more than 1,900 animal species at OKC's wildest attraction. Guests can go behind the scenes with Wild Encounters and get up close with animal feedings. Get the ultimate experience with a VIP Safari Tour or choose between one of the interactive feeding experiences with Grizzly Bears, Bison, Rhinos, Sea Lions, Galapagos Tortoises and Elephants.
