Location & Lifestyle
Once considered the oil capital of the world, “T-Town” has developed into a vibrant (albeit small), modern metro area. Straddling the South, Southwest, and Midwest regions of the country, Tulsa is home to a distinct culture comprised of the best characteristics of each of these regions, in addition to Native American and cowboy heritage. The community often comes together to celebrate its heritage and common interests. Some of the most popular events include Oktoberfest, the Tulsa Tough annual bicycle race and affiliated Cry Baby Hill block party, several food festivals, and Mayfest. Tulsa has some great outdoor spots that locals routinely take advantage of with more than 130 parks in the metro area, including the popular River West Festival Park and Turkey Mountain Urban Wilderness Area. More than 50 miles of trails traverse the Tulsa area, providing hikers and bikers with beautiful views of the Arkansas River. The metro area is also home to several golf courses, as well as plenty of places to team up and play soccer, rugby, and baseball. Enjoying live music is a favorite pastime for Tulsa residents, who flock to popular venues like Cain’s Ballroom, Tulsa Theater, The BOK Center, and Guthrie Green. Tulsa also appeals to art aficionados with a collection of galleries and the expansive Philbrook Museum of Art. The Deco District showcases examples of art deco architecture.
