Up With Trees

  12 votes
In 1882, the railroad brought white settlers and Tulsa, became a cattle-shipping center. Later on oil was found and by the 1920's Tulsa became the Oil Capital of the World. With many parks, lakes, and trees this city is a fresh place to visit.


Tulsa became an inland port with the opening of the McClellan-Kerr Waterway, a 440-mi (708-km) system linking it to the Gulf of Mexico. Tulsa is an important center of the nation's petroleum industry with large refineries and plants that produce petroleum products and related equipment. An extensive park system (which includes Mohawk Park) and well-planned communities characterize the residential aspect of the city. Tulsa has many cultural and educational aspects with a large theater, art and history museums, an opera, the Univ. of Tulsa, Oral Roberts Univ., and an institute of American art and history.

Favourite spots:
One of my favorite lakes to visit is Grand Lake (about an hour north east of Tulsa) with a shoreline of 1,300 miles. There are plenty of beaches, picnic areas, boat ramps, and camping locations. Woodward Park (Utica and 21st). This city park has wooded paths, ponds, and a beautiful waterfall. Just to the south are the Tulsa Rose Gardens. There are two shopping malls, an outdoor shopping center, and a handful of good movie theaters. Downtown there are many beautiful churches with unique architecture. In the Brady District many bars and clubs provide a variety of entertainment. The main streets to stroll are Cherry street (15th) and Brookside (Peoria). Here nice restaurants, art galleries, and boutiques entice the senses. Riverside offers a paved path that stretches about 10 miles along the rivers edge. Complete with benches, waterfountains, statues, a cafe, playgrounds, disc golf, and a rugby field; natives and travelers alike can enjoy the Arkansas River in al its serenit

What's really great:
Taking walks in the evening is truly the best. The people are so friendly and the weather is usually calm.

Accommodations:
Downtown has accomodations at the Double Tree Hotel and at the Crown Plaza. South there is the Renaissance Hotel and the Marriott. To name a few.

Nightlife:
There are many clubs in the Brady District. The Velvet Room, Downtown 54, just to name a few. They offer a variety of music, drinks, and food.
