Seriously? Tulsa number 1? Not that I hate Tulsa or anything, but out of the entire country TULSA is number 1? On what did they base this? Did we get bonus points for the number of meth labs or something? I like Tulsa just fine, but this really surprises me.

Apparently, the criteria below are considered.

"The nominations, along with key data regarding education, employment, economy, crime, parks, recreation and housing are reviewed, rated & judged by our editorial team."


Of course, each publication is subjective and there are other publications that would rank other cities first. However, it is good to be ranked so highly by a publication such as this.

Default Go Tulsa!

Yep, I agree. The ten years I lived there, I really enjoyed it. That's the reason I can't wait to get back. Outskirts for retirement though, but Tulsa will be the GOTO. I now wish I'd have stayed there. What a fool!!

I copied the article. I can see why. If you have lived in other States you can see that Tulsa standard of living is much higher than other cities. For instance take the price of a house. You can a very nice house in tulsa, decent income and 3 seasons. Try living in LA? Oklahoma is an easy State to live in all the way arouond. I own a ranch, I couldn't possible own this ranch in another other state at this price.

Real winter! A couple of cold dips and a bit of ice don't make winter, they just add a bit of interest between fall and spring.
