Our chartered bus will pick up everyone from the our two designated hotels at 8 a.m. There is no need for any other transportation on that day. Our tour will stop at the beautiful and rugged Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes territory to visit their buffalo herd businesses.
Here is a sample of our Oklahoma Tribal Business Bus Tour with Jim Collard PhD providing the running commentary as we journey through Citizen Potawatomi territory:
Our journey continues where we will have a stop at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum to take in the history and culture of Oklahoma.
The National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum is America’s premier institution of Western history, art and culture. Founded in 1955, the Museum, located in Oklahoma City, collects, preserves and exhibits an internationally renowned collection of Western art and artifacts while sponsoring dynamic educational programs to stimulate interest in the enduring legacy of the American West. For more information see their website: https://nationalcowboymuseum.org/
Our journey continues onward to downtown Oklahoma City for informal network dining at various restaurants in the Bricktown area. Industrial-chic Bricktown is a lively entertainment district, with repurposed warehouse spaces home to restaurants, piano lounges and chic wine bars. An eclectic mix of shops sell clothing, home decor and specialty food items like gourmet condiments and handmade chocolate. The Bricktown Water Taxi takes riders along the Bricktown Canal for tours and dinner cruises. Bricktown is situated just east of the Downtown Business District in Oklahoma City and was the city’s first warehouse and distribution center, established shortly after the famous Land Run in 1889.
Upon finishing dinner and enjoying the sights of Bricktown, we are transported back to our hotels in norman (the Marriott Conference Center at NCED and Riverwind Hotel and Casino). For more information on Bricktown see their website: http://www.bricktownokc.com/
