An Oklahoma Getaway and First Airbnb Stay

In February, sometime after being snowed in, we decided, that no matter what, we would go somewhere for spring break. 

We weren’t ready to board an airplane or even to travel with others, so a road trip for two would have to do. We decided on Oklahoma City just to test the waters. I searched the Airbnb site and read a ton of reviews and we settled on The Blue Vinyl.

It was small, stylish, and budget-friendly so we booked.

The Blue Vinyl has a ton of great amenities. We were able to go to the nearby Walmart and pick up a few late-night snacks, store and cook without a problem.

The Blue Vinyl is located in Oklahoma’s historic plaza district. If you can make it out of the neighborhood to N. Classen Blvd. it will take you all around, down-up, and through OKC. LOL. After two days I knew my way around just fine.

From the Blue Vinyl to food and fun:

 Plaza District – Walking distance (1.5 Blocks) Midtown – 1 mile Uptown – 1.3 miles Chesapeake Arena/Downtown – 2.8 miles

Our Review

We were happy to share with the host Allison how happy we were with our stay. Her place was clean and offered all of the comforts of home. We could park right outside of the front door and we felt safe at night. 

Things To Do In OKC

  • Oklahoma City Zoo
  • Hang at Scissortail Park
  • Bricktown Eats and Water Taxi
  • Visit the Museum of Art
  • Mural Tour
  • Route 66

Plus more.

We mostly rested, tried new foods and people watched. But this trip was refreshing after being stuck in the house for a year. 

If you are looking to dip your toe in the travel waters this summer just to see how it would be to travel, give Oklahoma a shot. And if you aren’t sure about staying in a hotel full of families from around the world, definitely consider Airbnb. If nothing else, I can assure you that you will be able to rest, relax and reset.
