Districts near The Presley
Oklahoma City is in the middle of a major urban revitalization, from an eclectic food frenzy to an explosion of new entertainment and cultural verve. No matter what your mood, there’s a district to dive into, and thanks to a revamped transportation infrastructure, few of the hottest haunts are more than 20 minutes away. Here’s what’s closest to your new pad.
Uptown 23. Very much a retro vibe centered around the historic Tower Theatre, a local favorite for live music. Find elevated street food at Guyutes, outdoor dining at Social Deck & Dining, and a backyard bonanza at The Pump, complete with yard games. Belly up to a bar at the Bunker Club or Ponyboy, or enjoy a little more sophistication at The Eleanor Champagne Lounge. Check out Syrup or The Copley for breakfast, brunch, or lunch, or grab a Hurts Donut any time, day or night.
Paseo Arts District. Five minutes and a world away, the Paseo Arts District is a perfect pocket of cultural delight. Dine or drink in any style with restaurants like Paseo Grill, Goro Ramen Picasso Café, the Oso, Scratch, and FRIDA Southwest. Enjoy the district’s First Friday Gallery Walk with featured artists and an inspired street scene, or browse the neighborhood’s art galleries, shops, and working artists’ studios—like Prairie Arts Collective and Literati Press Comics & Novel—any day of the week.
Asian District. The area in and around NW 23rd and Classen Blvd is the heart of Oklahoma City’s Asian community, but you’ll find all kinds of flavors here. In addition to next-level Vietnamese pho at places like Pho Cuong, Pho Lien Hoa, and VII Asian Bistro, you can also try Guatemalan at Café Kacao, vegetarian and vegan fare at The Red Cup, Taj Cuisine of India, and Sala Thai. Oh, and don’t miss the banh mi at Lee's Sandwiches. Super Cao Nguyen, the state's largest international supermarket is here, and Military Park hosts several cultural events a year, including the Lunar Moon Festival in the fall and the Asian Night Market Festival in the summer.
Western Ave. Western Ave. combines the best of old-school cool with fresh new trends. From discovering vinyls at Guestroom Records or a classic cut at Weldon Jack’s Barber Shop to Trader Joe’s and Osteria’s organic vegan menu, this north-south stretch packed with antique stores, posh boutiques, and plenty of restaurants and bars takes you on a trip through time and all the way to Classen Curve.
Highways near The Presley
Thanks to close, easy access to all three of the state’s major interstates—as well as I-235, a roughly 5-mile stretch of interchange that runs north and south through OKC—a day trip or afternoon out is never far away.
A quick jump east over to I-235 will get you close to almost all of the city’s eclectic districts in just minutes. You can also take it north to catch I-44 and I-35, or south just north of the Oklahoma River to I-40.
I-35 delivers a straight shot south to Texas—roughly 3 hours to Dallas—north to Kansas—2 hours to Wichita—or anywhere in the center of the state, so it’s not hard to see why the highway’s dubbed “Adventure Road.” Towns like Sulphur, Stillwater, and Ponca City are a stone’s throw east of the interstate, while hidden gems like the Arbuckle Wilderness in Davis, Pauls Valley, and Guthrie take you off the beaten path. WinStar World Casino & Resort is at the southernmost exit in Thackerville.
If chasing the sunrise or sunset is more your style, then I-40 is for you. I-40 is a modern-day version of historic Route 66 that runs directly east and west right through the middle of the state and right through every one of Oklahoma’s unique ecological environments. From the lake country and wooded hills of the Ozarks in the east to stunning landscapes of salt plains, sand dunes, and mountains in the west, I-40 is your ticket to Oklahoma’s treasure trove of state parks. Weatherford, Clinton, Yukon, El Reno, Lake Eufaula, and Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge are just a few of the major cities and attractions you’ll find right off I-40, not to mention great shopping opportunities (like the OKC Outlets), casino and hotel entertainment venues, and updated travel centers located all along the route.
Take I-44 corner-to-corner. Tulsa and Broken Arrow are just 2 hours away, where you’ll find Oologah Lake and Keystone Lake & State Park for vistas you have to see to believe. Head southwest toward Chickasha, Medicine Park, and the Wichita Mountains for great hiking, camping, and fishing.

If your travel plans take you further, don’t worry—Will Rogers World Airport is less than 30 minutes away straight down I-44.
