I love my city! Tulsa a very diverse town with hundreds of activities to do! Our local sports teams include the Tulsa Drillers minor league baseball team and the Tulsa Oilers hockey team. There is also a variety of restaurants ranging from southern comfort food to extraordinary five star dining. There are also many activities always going on in the metro area. However, what really makes Tulsa one of the most lovely cities is the people! As a community we are always willing to come together and lend a helping hand to anyone.

Tulsa is a good place to go to school, start a family and put down roots. There is a decent amount of things to do, and there are new restaurants and entertainment opportunities popping up all the time! There is a great art scene here, a lot of artists, photographers, sculptors, and plenty of art centers, galleries, and museums, such as Philbrook Museum of Art and the Gilcrease Museum or the Living Arts Center of Tulsa. There are so many parks here, I can't even name them all! Therefore, it makes for a great place to live if you love the outdoors. Tulsa is a big city with a small town feel, as I have always said and I have heard many other people say. We have some great colleges, such as the University of Tulsa, and smaller community colleges such as Tulsa Community College. It's definitely worth a visit to see if this is the place for you!
This sweet town is simplistic and heavily saturated in terms of consumer marketing. Depending on your profession, the job market is fairly competitive; however, many jobs are coming up scarce. The neighborhoods are divided into wealthier and more poverty-stricken districts, and the amenities and environments of those areas wholeheartedly reflect this. The bigger school districts such as Bixby, Union, and Jenks, have a more prosperous setting, but Tulsa Public Schools have some safety concerns due to a lack of funding and public involvement. Most of the shops in Tulsa are national store chains such as Walmart, Target, and Best Buy, but there are some true "hole-in-the-wall" gems if you look carefully enough. The commute is pretty great, and the roads are set in an easily understandable grid system that pretty works well. Overall, this town is best for retirees looking for a simple quiet life or for those looking to save some money on housing and commute.
