I love living in tulsa county. There are so many differet events to experience while attending school, in this county. Tulsa Community College is where i attend at the moment great, convient, and financialy stable to attend. Downtown is a great place to explore on days you have nothing else to do. Take walk down Cherry street, Brookeside, or take a hike on Turkey Mountain. Tulsa has many casinos you could stop by. Downtown use to not be a great spot to artted events, but they have a new owner who upgraded and opened many business to help get it back on its feet. Tulsa is a great place to come and visit!

Coming from the northeast I really didn't know what to expect arriving in Tulsa County. I was blow away with Tulsa's rich culture though. I was welcomed with friendly faces at the University of Tulsa. I decided to stay in Tulsa after graduating over the prospects of moving back north. Tulsa always has something new brewing. From the Gathering Place, our newest and greatest park, to local tap rooms, and First Friday art fairs, Tulsa is thriving!
Love Tulsa! I love the midtown neighborhoods because it has plenty of trees. Folks are friendly, and health and wellness, working out and staying fit are huge deal here. Many great community events ie; The Gathering Place on Riverside, Arts and Culture events, and fantastic Museums. So much to see!
