The city called “comfortably cosmopolitan” boasts a history older than Oklahoma, and since the very beginning, Tulsa has been a city that knows how to live well. Today, Tulsa’s rich fusion of history and culture, combined with an up-to-the-minute metro allure, makes this Western gem an endlessly renewable resource for dining, shopping and entertainment. From the gorgeous Art Deco skyline to the boot-scooting dance floor of historic Cain’s ballroom, from upscale sushi bars to down home barbecue joints, from the nation’s 18th oldest opera company to the Tulsa Shocks women’s NBA team (the newest addition to the city’s fast-growing sports scene), Tulsa rolls out a nonstop welcome. And remember, the city also known as “The Birthplace of Route 66” is less than 40 minutes from MidAmerica.
