Oklahoma’s second-biggest city after Oklahoma City is full of surprises. During the 1920s, Tulsa was flush with oil money—skyscrapers sprinted up at the speed of light, Art Deco was all the rage, new restaurants abounded and citizens glorified the city’s cultural scene. Today, you’ll find that much of the era’s architecture has been carefully preserved and the city boasts an impressive array of different architectural styles. Amidst all that historic opulence and the inevitable Midwestern urban sprawl, visitors are also treated to a rich mix of local art and culture. From the world-class Philbrook Museum of Art to Cain’s Ballroom and a whole lot of parks and green spaces, there are so many things to do in Tulsa that the average traveler will likely want to add a few days to their trip.
