About Tulsa, Oklahoma

We think you’ll be taken with Tulsa—a city that surprises visitors with a feeling that is Southern, Eastern and Western all at once. Experience its cosmopolitan flavor at the same time you delight in its small-town friendliness. We’re big enough to have everything you need, but small enough to make you feel right at home.

In Tulsa you’ll find cowboys and classical ballet. Art deco and arena football. Rodeos, religion and rolling hills. A visit to Tulsa is a great opportunity to experience a delightful mix of rich culture, colorful history, terrific shopping, and lively nightlife.

If art makes you happy, explore some of Tulsa’s nationally recognized museums like Gilcrease Museum, the world’s largest and most comprehensive collection of fine art, artifacts, and archives of the American West. Or stroll through an Italian-style villa that was once home to a millionaire oilman and is now the renowned Philbrook Museum, filled with Italian renaissance art, ancient and classical pieces, and extensive Native American collections.


When the sun goes down in Tulsa, you can live it up almost any way you like. Try a night at the opera, or hit the trendy bars of Brookside and the Brady District. Get lucky at the slot machines or the horse races, yuk it up at a comedy club, cheer on a ball team, ride a roller coaster, feast at a four-star restaurant or get messy at a barbecue joint. The choices are endless and whatever you do you’ll have the time of your life.
