Located in the Green Country region of Oklahoma, Tulsa sits at the foothills of the Ozark Mountains. The city was developed around the Arkansas River and boasts a large amount of lakes and hills compared to other areas in the state. Its unique geography attracts visitors who love the outdoors. Hiking trails, botanical gardens, zoos and wildlife preserves are just a few of the open-air activities on offer.

Once dubbed the “Oil Capital of the World,” Tulsa has emerged as the arts and cultural center of Oklahoma. It’s home to the Gilcrease Museum, the Philbrook Museum of Art, as well as opera and ballet companies and a sizable concentration of Art Deco architecture. Oklahoma’s second-largest city is also known for its Western swing music appropriately referred to as the “Tulsa sound.” The Tulsa sound has heavily influenced the work of several popular artists, such as Eric Clapton and Garth Brooks.
