Country singer George Strait once crooned, “Tell me something bad about Tulsa.” He was lamenting the loss of his lover and looking for reasons to stay away from a broken romance. But as he remembered her “eyes as blue as Tulsa skies,” he found it difficult to stay firm in his resolve. Tourists to this city will understand why George Strait didn’t want to leave. This once western city, turned “Oil Capital of the World,” with its temperate weather, is a wonderful place to visit.

After being coped up in a plane, it’ll be a nice way to rejuvenate yourself as you explore what the park has to offer. The name Mohawk Park may tip visitors off to the Tulsa area’s history as originally being a part of Indian Territory. The area reflects that history in the names of its streets as well, like “Apache Street” or “Cherokee Expressway.” Mohawk Park is home to the Tulsa Zoo and Living Museum. Take a tour atop a camel, go for a ride on the carousal, or climb the Monolith rock climbing wall. The park also has a boating and fishing area, along with many picnic tables.

Next, EscapeWizard.com recommends traveling into the downtown area of Tulsa. Tulsa is adorned with buildings done in the Art Deco architectural style. This high concentration – one of the highest in the country – is reflective of the time when Tulsa flourished from the oil boom. The first oil well was discovered near Tulsa in the first year of the 20th century. This discovery prompted growth throughout the century. The population swelled while culture flourished. EscapeWizard.com recommends visiting the Philbrook Museum. Once an oil barons’ estate, today the museum is one of the country’s top 50 fine art museums. Surrounded by gorgeous gardens and filled with some of the nation’s finest works of art – a trip to the Philbrook is a feast for the eyes.

A trip to Gilcrease museum gives visitors a taste of the American West. EscapeWizard.com recommends this museum for those interested in learning more about the Wild West. The museum is home to the largest collection of Western artifacts. While Tulsa is home to wonderful museums, the city itself has landmarks that serve as exhibits for its past and promise for the future. Sculptures created by local artists can be found throughout the city and commercial and cultural art is found everywhere. The “golden driller” stands tall in the Tulsa fairgrounds. Meanwhile fountains dance along Tulsa’s River Parks. Visitors will be charmed by the plethora of sculptures that adorn the Arkansas River Trails.
