Located in central Oklahoma is the state capital and its largest city. "OKC" became the state capital in 1910 and saw rapid growth in the 1920s when oil was discovered in the area. The oil industry has dominated the city's economy ever since. Among the inventions originating out of Oklahoma City are the parking meter and the traffic signal. Today, Oklahoma City is a steadily growing city of 580,000 and 1.3 million metro area, the nucleus of the cattle industry and a major distribution center for the state. There has been a billion dollar redevelopment program in recent years, seeing a major restoration of the Oklahoma City downtown area and other locations in the city.
Nightlife in Oklahoma City is more cosmopolitan than you'd think. Bricktown, stretching for a mile through the downtown area, is a growing entertainment district that features a myriad of restaurants, bars, dance clubs and places to see live music.
