|Our visit to Oklahoma City was interesting. We stayed about 40 miles outside of the city in a small Mom and Pop park which was clean and quiet and very relaxing. The commute to downtown was easy and parking at the site of the memorial was easy. It is a very moving place and the effects of the bombing are still pretty real with all the pictures and tributes still on the fence surrounding the monument. After viewing the monument we walked several blocks to a "free trolley" which we thought would be a good way to see the city as it was with all the other trolleys we rode. Wrong!! All it was was a driver who was interested in talking about his personal life to some of his "friends" who got on the bus. What a waste of time. Anyway, we caught he bus at the main transportation center which is a couple of blocks from the bombing monument. The reason I mention this is because the next morning a special news bulletin came over the TV saying that a suspicious package has been found at the transportation center and they showed the bomb disposal robot and expert examining the package. It was in the exact spot that we had waited for this "no nothing" bus. Thankfully, it turned out to be nothing, but gave you a funny feeling after having been at the site of the huge bomb at the Murrah building. Anyway, after we left downtown we went to the Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum. You could have spent several days there and not have seen it all. Some of the rooms contained art collections that were worth in the millions. Some rooms had re-creations of old west towns. Some rooms had artifacts of the American Indians. It is really worth seeing if you get in the area.
