Team – Oklahoma City Thunder
Getting to Oklahoma City
We drove in to Oklahoma Ciry as part of a road trip. OKC is well served an Amtrak station and an airport so there are a range of options depending on your budget and where you are coming in from.
Oklahoma City is typical of American cities. If you want chain restaurants then you will find something to suit your needs.
On the night of the game we headed in to Bricktown. I would definitley recommend the Bricktown Brewery and Whiskey Chicks.
It’s the state capital so there are no shortage of hotels. We found that hotels with parking were fairly expensive though that might have been because we were there around Valentine’s day. We ended up booking an AirBnB which is a little north of the centre but we still found it easy to walk to the centre.
Getting to the venue
We were able to walk to the venue from our accommodation. The venue is very close to the centre and the surrounding streets are definitely safe to walk. There are a number of car parks around the venue (charging a range of fees) if you decide to drive instead.
The venue is typical of a NBA venue. The seats were comfortable with enough room so that I didn’t feel squashed. We were in section 310 and had a good view of the court. It didn’t seem that any seats had a bad view.
Food in the venue
We had eaten so didn’t need to find food in the venue. A range of options were available for those who did need to.
The venue has a wide range of concessions providing options including the usual popcorn, hod dogs and beer but also baked potatoes, fruit salad and veggie wraps. I was also impressed by the range of gluten free options.
