Tulsa Travel Guide

Located in northeast Oklahoma on the Arkansas River, Tulsa is the second-largest city in the state and is close to the Midwest’s tornado alley. Also near to the Great Plains as well as the low-lying Ozark Mountains, Tulsa’s landscape is dominated by rolling green hills that extend into the center of the city.

With its abundance of greenery and hilly southern section, Tulsa is an attractive looking city with some stunning architecture. The Boston Avenue Methodist Church is an impressive Art Deco building built in 1929, and is considered one of the finest examples of its kind in the whole of the US. Also well-known for its random sculptures such as Penguins on Parade and the Artificial Cloud, both of which are true to their names, Tulsa offers a unique arts scene.

Mohawk Park on the northern side of the city is a huge expanse of public land that houses a nature center and numerous golf courses. Other outdoor attractions include Big Splash Water Park in Midtown, which gets extremely crowded during the summer.
