If you love big name draws on concerts, the BOK is your place! We have lots of family friendly activities and some lovely parks. One draw back is if you’re really into nightlife, Tulsa might be a little slow to suit your taste. There are pockets of crime, like anywhere else, but some of the older more established neighborhoods have beautiful houses and yards. The surrounding suburbs are a great option as well. Many families are headed that way as the schools are more state of the art and more recently built. Most look like a junior college campus.

I have lived in the Tulsa area my entire life, particularly around South Tulsa/Broken Arrow. Tulsa has it's flaws, as any major city does, but it is by no means a bad place to live or visit. Tulsa has plenty of things to do for all types of people. It has many local sporting events such as baseball, soccer, and football. It also has many strips in and around downtown for those hip and trendy, or for those who look to fuel their inner geek! Tulsa even has a pretty suitable night life for those who like to be out past dark, with many clubs and bars. No matter who you are, I'm quite sure you could find something you would enjoy about a visit to Tulsa!
Tulsa is growing! Our downtown area has become a very popular place for nightlife, as well as families to visit. We have Guthrie Green, an outdoor venue, as well as the BOK Center, Cox Business Center (which hosts many sporting events) and events like the First Friday Art Crawl. As well, we have The Gathering Place, a 66 acre park along Riverside Drive that will be home to amazing playgrounds and outdoor events as well.
