Tulsa is a great city! It has all the things you like in a small town and big city in one. The people are friendly for the most part. The addition of places like The Gathering Place and Mother Road Market have begun to bring out more of what Tulsa has to offer. Hopefully Tulsa continues to add more developments like these and continue their support for small businesses. The school systems definitely need improvement. Downtown and midtown have an eclectic choice of nightlife, but nothing that stands out among them all. The citizens of Tulsa are not the healthiest, but there is hope for improvement with more outdoor activity places such as The Gathering Place. Safety is a bigger concern in more places than others, but there are many city projects aiming to better neighborhoods. Diversity throughout Tulsa has exploded over the recent years, and most people seem to feel free to be themselves. Tulsa is extremely affordable which makes it an easy choice to put down roots and grow here.

I haven’t lived in Tulsa county long but I’ve worked here for years. I’ve noticed that every morning I see dumpster divers scavenging for random objects, homeless population has sky rocket, breaking and entering has increased and drug use has gotten out of control. On a positive note I feel like there is less panicking more coming together as a community. I’ve seen many deliver food to the homeless, build houses for those in need and spread positivity throughout the community. As a whole I feel like Tulsa county is doing it’s best to become something better day by day.
Living in Tulsa there are lots of great things about the city! Now having the Gathering place, it has helped our city tremendously. I have lived in Tulsa for most of my life so I know it very well and glad to call it home. My favorite thing about Tulsa has to be the type of people who want to work and create a better Tulsa while preserving a lot of Tulsa's rich history. I love Tulsa and am glad to be here!
