36. Oklahoma City

Oklahoma City is officially hitting its stride as an arts and culture destination. Last fall, local arts collective Factory Obscura debuted Mix-Tape, a permanent, immersive installation that personifies the feelings that go into creating musical compilations for friends. Meanwhile, March will see the opening of the Oklahoma Contemporary Arts Center, a brand-new expansive campus with galleries, performance spaces, classrooms, studios, and a café. It’s not far from the city’s just-opened Scissortail Park, a 70-acre green space that stretches from downtown to the banks of the Oklahoma River. The park is part of an ongoing effort to boost the quality of life in Oklahoma City — as are downtown’s newly installed streetcar lines. Six miles of tracks now connect central attractions. And next year, the city’s new convention center and Omni hotel will be complete, rounding out a revitalized downtown. —Madeline Bilis
