Fun things to do and eat in OKC over Thankgiving Weekend

Can you recommend some "must-see" Museums or places in Oklahoma City or Edmond for Nov 24-26?

Also great barbeque funky bistro type restaurants in Edmond?

First time out there to see relatives - your help is appreciated.

Welcome to Oklahoma!

My favorite must-see recommendation is the National Cowboy Hall of Fame and Western Heritage Museum. Breathtaking paintings and sculptures, fantastic cowboy memorabilia....currently an art from Fort Marion exhibit. Please check for holiday hours.

http://www.nationalcowboymuseum.org/

At the Oklahoma City Museum of Art, located downtown in the Arts District, is a wonderful exhibit titled The Baroque World of Fernando Botero. This museum has the largest collection of the glass works of Dale Chihuly. Again, please check for holiday hours.

I wish we could hang on a bit more to our great fall weather for you - currently it's 81 degrees at 5:00 PM - but Mother Nature is bringing a change.

Enjoy your trip!

I am sure some Local Experts will chime in soon with restaurant suggestions.

Meanwhile, you might enjoy this thread on local restaurants:

tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g51560-i521-k97342…

In this thread I recommend Saturn Grill if you are out and about in the area and want a casual restaurant. Saturngrill.com

It's quite good and quite casual, but fun casual.

If you want high end dining, take a look at Nonna's in the Bricktown entertainment district. The decor is really special.

Nonnas.com

As you live in Boston, I hesitate to recommend anything Italian! :<)
