Get in[edit]

Map of Bethany (Oklahoma)

By car[edit]

Drive in on Route 66. Bethany is surrounded by Oklahoma City, halfway between the John Kilpatrick Turnpike and Interstate 44 (which is Highway 74 north of Route 66).

By plane[edit]

The nearest airport with scheduled passenger service is the Will Rogers World Airport (OKC IATA) in Oklahoma City, approximately 8 miles to the south-southeast of Bethany.

Wiley Post Airport (PWA IATA), for general aviation, is immediately on the northwest border of Bethany's city limits.

Get around[edit]

You will need a car. Bus service is limited, bicycles are rare, and very little is within convenient walking distance.



You can attend the Bethany 66 Festival in May with its car shows, live entertainment, and Princess and Action Hero Parade. It's supposedly a charity-driven festival.


  • Rink Gallery, 3200 N Rockwell Ave, +1 405 787-7465. Daily 10AM-7PM. One of those antique stores that stretch on and on with a snack bar.


  • Birrieria Diaz, 6700 NW 39th Expy, +1 405 603-1304. Daily 8AM-9:30PM. An unpretentious but popular taqueria. One cool thing about it is the mural outside. $.
