Not a place I would ever have visited were it not for having once dated a girl from Oklahoma, the city is actually a surprisingly nice little town with some exceptionally friendly people. Highlights include the Bricktown area, OKC bombing memorial, and the OKC Museum of Art.Recommended for

This city would not be on my must-see list in America, but I do find some entertainment visiting downtown's Bricktown and watching OKC Thunder basketball games. Hotel accommodations are plentiful near the airport and there is no freeway traffic like other big cities.

Oklahoma City isn't the best city to live/visit, but it's not the worst. Your enjoyment in the city depends on what you enjoy. Most people in the city range from midwestern to southern. There's good food in the city, but it's light on entertainment. Thunder games are great in season, but the rest of the time there aren't a lot of things to do for young adults/professionals without kids.
People are friendly for the most part. Oklahoma City is surrounded by two wealthy neighborhoods Nichols Hills and Edmond. If you visit during Christmastime, the wealthy in those neighborhoods always put up professional light displays. They're pretty great.
For people with kids, you can check out Frontier City which is a very small theme park, the Children's Science Museum, or the Oklahoma City Zoo.
For young adults looking for a night at the town, remember that Oklahoma Liquor laws are ridiculously strict. There's a 13.5% liquor tax, businesses aren't allowed to have daily specials unless they run all month long, and Bricktown bars notoriously have expensive mixed drinks with only half shots in them.

I had family not to far from the city and it was kind of like California in a way but the people talked really slow and I talk fast so it was interesting. I remember the sun coming out of Oklahoma City was shining and it was pouring down rain. I thought the world had ended. lol It was nice there.
