Are you spending some time in Moore, Oklahoma and looking for fun things to do while you're there? Here are six great things to do in the metro area including unique theater-going experiences and kid-friendly parks.
Yellow Rose Theater
The Yellow Rose Theater has to make the list of one of the top things to do in Moore, OK as it's the state's only full-time, professional dinner theater. The "Whodunit" murder mystery dinners are a lot of fun, and there is a nice variety of entertaining performances. They are even willing to customize dinners for special occasions.
Residents throughout the Oklahoma City metro area and even the state for that matter make the trip to Moore for the Warren Movie Theatre experience. Some people consider this theater to be the best movie theater in OKC, particularly because of the balcony and director's suite seating options. Have an adult beverage or a full meal served to your individual, oversized seat as you enjoy a movie in luxury. Also, check out the huge, digital IMAX theatre.
Located just to the southwest of the Moore city limits, Orr Family Farm is one of the top places for kids in all of OKC. Kids and families can go fishing, ride the train, pet the animals, ride the carousel, play on the playground, sample the jams and jellies, ride the pedal carts on the Orr Grand Prix and much more. It's great for parties and special occasions as well.
Located just east of the Moore city limits, Lake Stanley Draper covers about 2,900 acres and has an average depth of 34 feet. It offers many fishing piers, a marina, picnic areas, camping areas, boat ramps, recreational areas, ATV tracks and large, open water for skiing.
Of the many OKC golf courses, the Moore area is home to a few excellent ones. Private ones include the Moore Golf & Athletic Club and Lakeside. Broadmoore has a good reputation among the public courses. It's an 18-hole course that is very reasonably priced.
Buck Thomas Park
Of the many Moore-area city parks, Buck Thomas is the largest and has the most to offer. It features, just to name a few things, a skate park, athletic fields, a walking trail, picnic areas, pavilions, playgrounds and more. It is also the site for several large annual events, including the city's July 4th festival known as Celebration in the Heartland and the Easter egg hunt festivities.
