Oklahoma — Shopping and Leisure
If you are in the market for some high-quality authentic western wear then Oklahoma’s big cities may just feel like the equivalent of Beverly Hills. Oklahoma City has some legendary stores like Langston’s and Sheplers that have been outfitting cowboys and would-be wranglers with hats, boots, and everything else you can put on your body for decades. It’s the real deal, patroned by real cowboys.
Outdoor gear is another common product of Oklahoma’s stores thanks to the widespread popularity of fishing, canoeing, hunting, and camping in the state. Head to Oklahoma City’s Bricktown District and you can spend hours browsing the aisles of the Bass Pro Shop, an Eden of outdoor recreation items. Tulsa also has plenty of places to do some shopping. From the upscale Utica Square to the farm-themed The Farm, you can find lots of ways to spend your money. There are also massive shopping malls in Tulsa like the Woodland Hills Mall with its 165 stores and the pleasant atmosphere of the Tulsa Promenade.
The rest of Oklahoma’s smaller towns are typically defined by their Main Street, where nearly all of the interesting shops are found. Specialty stores in the state focus on things like Native American crafts, Western-themed items, and antiques. In this cowboy environment you simply can’t get away from the Western gear. But the prices are as low as anywhere in America and the quality top-notch.
