The Oklahoma City Downtown and Bricktown Area:

Directly to the east of the Cox Convention Center is Bricktown. Once a busy warehouse area, today Bricktown is Oklahoma City's hottest entertainment and dining district. With dozens of restaurants, nightlife and a generous helping of turn-of-the-century charm, Bricktown offers visitors a variety of activities in downtown Oklahoma City. Enjoy a stroll along the mile-long Bricktown Canal, take a cruise on a Bricktown Water Taxi or listen to some tunes at one of the various music venues. 

Directly to the west of the Cox Convention Center is the Myriad Botanical Gardens and Crystal Bridge Tropical Conservatory. In April 2011, the Myriad Botanical Gardens unveiled brand new adventures for the entire family thanks to a $38 million transformation project. The outdoor grounds were completely transformed into an urban recreation wonderland, complete with a restaurant, interactive water features, a new children's garden, dog release area, grand event lawn and more. 

A few blocks to the north of the Myriad Botanical Gardens is The Oklahoma City Museum of Art. The museum's collection highlights European and American art of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, a growing collection of contemporary art and a comprehensive collection of glass sculpture by Dale Chihuly.
