Bored? Here’s a Staycation Thing To Do In OKC Vol.1
Before your inner Karen spouts off, yes, the covid is still a thing in Oklahoma. That being said, our numbers are still relatively low compared to every state you'd want to travel to this Summer. Our small population is the strength here. We're spread out, and that makes social distancing easy. Though, some municipalities are requiring citizens to wear a mask when in public. We can talk tyranny and your rights another time. If you want to play ball, you'll need the required equipment. It's literally the smallest thing in the world a person could be complaining about right now. If you don't want to travel, don't... but don't harsh another persons buzz by bullying them into not responsibly traveling the state.
With that out of the way, the state is pretty much open right now. One of the biggest draws to our state, that is experiencing its lowest visitor count right now, is the OKC National Memorial and Museum. It's the site of the largest and most heinous acts of domestic terrorism the USA has on the books. It's where the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building once stood, and in response to the ATF and FBI's complete and utter tyranny at Waco, TX two years earlier, at least two of the lowest American's in this nation decided they'd park a truck full of explosive fertilizer in it, set a fuse, and walk away as it literally brought down the crowded building.
It made headlines across the country, but every kid in an Oklahoma school was allowed to watch the coverage from the moment it happened til the coverage went back to daytime TV. It was a huge thing in our state. That being said, even as we were glued to the TV for days, the OKC National Memorial and Museum holds secrets the news networks never conveyed to the public. Last time I was there, it was closed for remodeling. Apparently, in that remodeling, they really stepped up the vision and storytelling acumen of their displays. Most people I know that have visited have spoken about how emotional a walk it is through the museum.
If you're worried about the rona, you'll take comfort in knowing the museum has stepped up their health game making it easy to comfortably view things every American should see in a safe, clean, social distanced environment. Just remember to put enough money into the parking meter to cover you for about two hours. Don't quote me, like I said, I haven't been there in a long time, but I do think the meters take cards now.
