Often simply referred to as “OKC,” Oklahoma City is the capital and the largest city of the state of Oklahoma. It is divided in two by the North Canadian River, which bisects OKC into North Oklahoma City and South Oklahoma City. The north side contains the urban, fashionable and diverse neighborhoods along with a few affluent historical communities. On the other hand, the south side of the city mainly features Oklahoma City’s industrial side.
