Oklahoma City is full of fun things to do on spring break! We’re in a part of the country where the spring break weather is unpredictable. You might need your flip flops and sunshades. You might need your gloves and earmuffs. You might need your umbrella and rain boots. And, although a little more rare in March, you just might need your emergency kit and tornado shelter! As Oklahomans, though, we always know our emergency plan and carry on with our spring break fun until it’s actually needed.
It seems like there is always plenty of information available about fun things to do on spring break with kids, but what about your teens?
Sure, they could sleep until noon and then play video games the rest of the day, but Oklahoma City offers tons of activities to get them out enjoying time with family or friends, no matter the weather! Why not make this spring break one they will remember?

For the sunny days…
Get out on the water!
Riversport OKC offers everything from adventure whitewater rafting at Oklahoma City’s white water rafting park to paddleboarding on Lake Overholser to dragon boating on the Oklahoma River to sailing on Lake Hefner. Surfing is even coming for summer! If you’d rather stay dry, you can climb the sky trail, zipline over the river, or try your skills out on the pump track. Check out all the activities offered at each of their three locations: Boathouse District, Lake Overholser, and Lake Hefner.
There are so many things to do in Downtown OKC that you could easily spend a whole day there. Take a ride on the Bricktown Water Taxi. Play some arcade games and a round of mini-golf at Brickopolis. Catch a movie at Harkins Theater. Grab a taco at Fuzzy’s Taco Shop. Bowl a couple of games at HeyDay. Rent an electric scooter or bicycle and zip around Bricktown. Take a walk through the Oklahoma Centennial Land Run Monument.
Hop over to Scissortail Park!
Hop on the OKC Streetcar and ride over to Scissortail Park. This is the newest part of OKC’s Maps 3 project, which is enhancing the quality of life for residents. At Scissortail Park, you can rent pedal boats, fly a kite, and do an impromptu photoshoot among the 40,000 daffodils or on the famous Skydance Bridge.
You won’t want to miss a photo-op in front of the huge OKC sign with the historic Santa Monica Pier Ferris Wheel in the background! The ferris wheel won’t be open for rides until after Spring Break, but it’s still a great place to hang out.
For the cold or rainy days…
Chisholm Creek is the place to be these days in OKC!
Your teens will love all of the exciting activities and mouthwatering food over on the north side of town. Top Golf, iFly Indoor Skydiving, and Red Door Escape Room will be a special treat for your teens. Then, the whole family can satisfy the hefty appetites they will have worked up at Uncle Julio’s, Razoo’s, or Birra Birra Craft Pizzeria, and then grab some craft ice cream at Bibi’s. Just across the highway from Chisholm Creek, Main Event is another great option to spend a fun day inside.
Of course, there are a ton of other places in OKC to find fun things to do on spring break, but we need to save some for ideas for summer! I know getting your teens out of the house every day during spring break might not be feasible, but choosing a day or two to get out and see your local area is a great way to make some lasting memories!
