How To “Staycation” in Style in Oklahoma City!

Forget faraway summer vacations — this season is all about staying home! In your comfortable and luxurious Shawn Forth home, the options around town are endless. When you’re not relaxing with an ice cold drink in hand, venture outside of your home for some fun in none other than gorgeous OKC.

In our one-of-a-kind hometown that we know and love, you can experience outdoor thrills, gorgeous sights, waterside relaxation, and even flying on any given day. Check out our hot picks for cool ways to staycation this summer:

Myriad Botanical Gardens

What better time than summer to immerse yourself in the wonders of nature? The Myriad Botanical Gardens is a plant lover’s paradise, where you and your kids can wander, explore, and learn about nature like you never have before. Make sure to check out the Crystal Bridge Conservatory, where you’ll marvel at thousands of tropical plants with 750 varieties and a stunning waterfall from a gorgeous skybridge!

Chisholm Creek

This incredible “mixed-use” development has everything you could want in a summer excursion: shopping, dining, golfing, and everything in between! Come for a delicious meal from sushi to Mexican to French cuisine, treat yourself to a spa session, and shop at your favorite stores. This development, in close proximity to other fun outdoor venues, is the perfect place to relax and unwind with your kids.

White Water Bay

Get ready to get soaked! This vibrant water park will make you feel just like a kid again as you soar down a water slide and float in a tube. With pools and rides, along with options for dining, shopping, and even a dive-in movie, there are many ways to keep you and your kids entertained all day long. When the air heats up, cool off in the most fun way possible!

Frontier City

Take a trip back in time to the wild, wild, west at Frontier City! Any day spent at this Western-themed amusement park is truly unforgettable. Enjoy both thrill and family-friendly rides, along with concerts, delicious dining, shows, water rides, and so much more! You’ll go wild for this one-of-a-kind amusement park that’s right around the corner.


If adrenaline is your speed, then iFLY is the place for you! Take a class with an instructor and feel yourself soar in a vertical wind tunnel. Indoor skydiving will deliver the thrills that you’ve been chasing your whole life! The best part is that even children can take a lesson to fly as well. Indoor skydiving comes with no motion sickness and very little restrictions, so you can let go and fly!

Pelican Bay Aquatic Center

It’s hot outside — take the kids out for a splash! An amazing waterpark with a pool is the perfect place for kids to cool off and have an incredible time. If your kids are just starting out, swimming lessons can help them get their skills up to speed so they can swim on their own one day! Rent your own comfortable cabana and watch your kids have a blast.

Riversport Adventures

You’ve never experienced anything quite like Riversport Adventures! This magical thrill zone offers a wide variety of active outdoor activities from whitewater rafting, to zip lining, to a Paddle Royale. You can even relax and enjoy a Floating Film on the pond, kayak down the river, or take a lesson in the activity of your choice! You’ll fall in love with nature after spending time at this incredible place.

Youth Zone

Also located at the incredible Riversport Adventures is a specific destination just for the kids, designed to let them spread their wings and fly.
