The Northeast district of Oklahoma City includes the Paseo Arts District and the Adventure District. Located at the crossroads of Interstate 35 and Interstate 44, the Adventure District includes seven attractions and two restaurants within an area that is just slightly smaller than two square miles.
Most people drive cars in Oklahoma, and the Adventure District is located near two major highways.
The city's EMBARK bus route 022 stops at the Oklahoma City Zoo and Remington Park, and bus route 003 stops at the zoo. These run every 30 minutes on weekdays, and once an hour on Saturday. There is no bus service in this area on Sundays, holidays, or nights.
The Paseo Arts District is served by bus #4; however, be aware that the bus only runs until 7PM on weekdays and Saturdays; no buses run on Sundays.
