Midwest City Travel Guide

Edit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
Midwest City was founded during World War II when Tinker AirForce Base was opened in southeast Oklahoma City.  It grew very quickly as Douglas Aircraft and others built large maintenance facilities as Tinker became the primary maintenance depot of the United States Air Force.  In the 1970's GM opened a large Automotive Assembly plant in the city.  Completely surrounded by Oklahoma City, the town grew until it ran out of space.  Its population has been about 50,000 since the mid 1970's.

Midwest city is a very blue collar bedroom community with lots of suburban sprawl.  It features an incredible number of fast food restaurants and chain retail establishments.  Due to the large number of military personel from the US and its allies, Midwest City/Del City also has some of the best options for Asian cuisine (and the only Korean restaurants in the area).
