Outdoor enthusiasts will want to experience the new Bass Pro Shop Outdoor World. Since opening late last year, Bass Pro has become a popular destination for visitors and locals alike. The store is located in the historic Bricktown Entertain- ment District at the junction of Interstate 40 and 235 in downtown Oklahoma City.
The Oklahoma City store is a sportsman’s dream, featuring nearly three football fields of shopping fun. Special efforts have been made to reflect the hunting and fishing heritage of Oklahoma with old photos artifacts and memorabilia adorning the walls depicting the area’s rich outdoor history.
The focal point of the store is the 30,000-gallon aquarium, featuring native Oklahoma fish, which will mesmerize visitors for hours. The waters are stocked with bass, stripers, catfish, gar, crappie, carp, pan fish and walleye. Many of the fish are “double-digit” in size and are a sight to see.
Completing the nostalgic theme of the store is a vignette of a cabin, painted mural and artifacts, including rocks and trees, replicating a scene from the movie “Where The Red Fern Grows.” The popular and award-winning 1961 children's novel by Wilson Rawls, and subsequent movie was filmed primarily in Tahlequah, Oklahoma and along the Illinois River, in the Cookson Hills.
Bass Pro is located at 200 Bass Pro Drive in Bricktown. Store hours are: Monday through Saturday from 9 am to 10 pm and Sundays 10:00 am to 7:00 pm. For more information, call 218-5200 or visit www.basspro.com.
