The Tulsa area is 1M or more people. Beside Gilcrease Museum there is a ton of shopping. You might like Utica Square (21st & Utica, I think). It is a very nice shopping center that is more intimate (and interesting) than a large mall and it very easy to access as it is just a few short blocks from the Interstate. Tulsans like holidays and you should be able to find excellent entertainment and hopefilly something going on at the Riverwalk as well. Start watching the newspaper for upcoming events. I believe Broken Arrow lights up, too.

Updated Plans: I will be in Tulsa December 1 - December 5. Got a good deal on airfare as well as the hotel. Howest, I will use your suggested itinerary to plan the spots to hit up while I am there. I will hit up the Tulsa Historical Society, I visited their website and it is interesting.

I arrived in Tulsa yesterday. I was tired from traveling all day so I took a nap then went to the Mayo rooftop bar, that hotel is beautiful! I will be spending a lot of time there for the duration of my trip. I am staying in the Atlas Life building which is also beautiful, in one of their Historic Registry rooms, the hallways on this floor look like a 1930s office building, it's great! Saturday will be rainy so I will walk around today and look at the art deco buildings here in downtown as well as hit up the Greenwood section. I plan to catch a play tonight and tomorrow night at the Tulsa Performing arts center. One thing I did notice yesterday is that downtown becomes a ghost town after dark and that there are no CVS or Walgreens at all. I've never seen a downtown that did not have a drugstore.
