Bricktown Dec 02, 2008
Bricktown is an area of downtown Oklahoma City. It is full of bars, restaurants, a minor league ballpark, and even a bowling alley and movie theater. The buildings all sit along a canal. This area was modeled after the Riverwalk in San Antonio, Texas. During the day, there aren't many people around, but at night, the area comes alive. Skyy bar is usually the busiest bar. As for food, one of my favorite places to eat is Zio's. It is an Italian restaurant that is located in a few states. The food and prices are good. My favorite thing there is actually the Tomato Florentine Soup. I don't care much for soup, but this will knock your socks off!

About 15 years ago, the area known as Bricktown was nothing more than a couple of restaurants and a bunch of old, brick-covered warehouse buildings. In 2007, Bricktown has started to mature into a first-rate entertainment district with great food, entertainment and music.

There's a lot to see and do in Bricktown. If you're a visitor, you'll be able to stay and play there because of four new hotels in the immediate area (including downtown). And you'll be close to many good places to eat, ranging from mid-priced eateries to higher-priced restaurants. You'll be able to find barbeque, italian, mexican and typical American fare in the area.

The attractions in Bricktown range from the Bricktown Ballpark, home of the AAA Oklahoma Redhawks, to the Bricktown Canal, which winds through the area. Yellow water taxis will take you around and give you a tour of Bricktown from the water. There is a big movie theater down there (Harkins) right off the canal if you want to see the latest flick.

Bricktown is also home to music events, from bands playing in bars such as the Wormy Dog or downtown's Ford Center, to the outdoor BluesFest festival that takes place there each year. There are also several night clubs, complete with dance music and bright lights. Shopping is starting to come to the area as well, as Bass Pro Shops is the first in what is expected to be many retailers scattered throughout the district.

It's still growing, but Bricktown is a place that has something for everyone, from the young professional single to the families. And best of all, it's a safe place you can walk around and explore at your own pace. It's a great area to just park you car and go for a walk. That's what's so great about Bricktown: It's really got something for everyone. It's definitely worth seeing whenever you're in Oklahoma City.
The Bricktown Canal is a great way…
