I will probably move to Tulsa to advance my career soon.

I've done some research into Tulsa, and I have a rough idea about it. Unfortunately, Tulsa doesn't look like a very pretty place to live, not too bad either though.

There are two things that worry me a lot about Tulsa. There's no passenger train service to Tulsa, leaving it light years behind OKC. The real estate market in Tulsa doesn't look very promising, should I rent or buy? If the economy is stagnant, the home value won't appreciate a lot in the years to come.

Anyway, I'll probably going to spend quite a few years there. Can you tell me something good about Tulsa? I'm a single guy who is interested in outdoors, cultural events and great food.

Thanks!

Lots of area lakes. Easy to get around. Plenty of golf courses.

Tulsa is gorgeous. We have hiking at Turkey Mountain, a huge downtown area with food trucks, shops, Guthrie Green where they have live music outdoors, movies on the lawn, fountains, Center of the Universe, Cain's Ballroom, a TON of festivals and unique restaurants. Midtown has a ton of shops, restaurants, and Utica Square--the nicest shopping center in Oklahoma (all outdoors). Midtown and downtown is the perfect spot for a single person looking for an urban lifestyle. Also, a lot of museums in and around Tulsa. The Gathering Place is currently being developed along the river.


We also are convenient to several lakes and sit alongside the Arkansas River, which--when it's full--is great to go sit down at the Riverwalk in Jenks and eat pizza, Mexican or ice cream outdoors. Plus, some really great dog parks in the area.


And real estate is booming here, so I'm not sure where your information came from? The city is expanding at a rapid speed and has some of the top schools and colleges, music venues, restaurants, and festivals in the state. Honestly, the only thing we are lacking, in my opinion, that OKC has is the OKC Thunder.

We also have good music venues to watch good music. I go to at least 5 concerts a year. We've seen Chicago, Huey Lewis, George Thurogood, Reo. Still have tickets for America, Pat Benatar, Toto, not counting many others we bypassed.

Top schools and colleges? You mean the University of Tulsa?

I'm not well informed, I have to confess. The population in OKC has increased by about 50% since the 90s, but the population of Tulsa has only increased slightly, like 5% or something? The city of Tulsa doesn't seem to be expanding. However, I've noticed that the suburbs are growing, Jenks, Broken Arrow, to name a few. I'm thinking of buying a home in a nice suburb of Tulsa, not within the city of Tulsa.

I'm quite interested in real estate and schools. Could you elaborate on the booming real estate? Thank you very much!

Tulsa likely doesn't have much room to grow. The suburbs are growing fast. If you want Ivy League schools, you'll need to go east. We have decent schools. The best local school systems are Jenks, Owasso, Broken Arrow and Union. We have top notch football and baseball, as well.

Default Tulsa Bridge Building Days Aren't Over Yet

Tulsa Oklahoma is building a brand new pedestrian bridge over the Arkansas River that looks like it's going to be quite a doozy!!!!
