Tulsa Reviews

I absolutely adore Tulsa. The mid-sized city has a small town feel due to its thriving culture and pride. Tulsa always has new small businesses popping up and bringing fresh ideas to the area. Also, the music scene is phenomenal. From jazz to punk rock, there's venues galore for music groups to share their passion. Lastly, the food is unbelievable. My favorite feature is our obsession with food trunks! Food trucks of every type of food from American to Asian-French fusion. Tulsa has something for every adventurer.
Review Tulsa
Tulsa is bad on the north side but nicer the further south you go. Because many major highways run through it, the people are quite diverse. There are many restaurants and rural areas to escape to on the outskirts of the city. When the weather is nice, there are always parades, festivals, outdoor concerts, and community activities going on. Jack White, rock and roll artist of the White Stripes, recently bought a house in Tulsa, so it must be pretty cool!
The art scene here is booming. Places like Cherry Street and the Brady Arts District are great, trendy places to experience Tulsa's nightlife. Crime, however, is a bit of an issue. There are definitely places of this city where you definitely do not want to go to alone, or ever, if you can manage it. Traffic construction can also put a damper on things, but even that is just a sign that the city is constantly growing. Plus, the food scene in Tulsa is fantastic!
