Bridging the Arkansas River and on the edge of the Great Plains, Tulsa serves as the second-largest city in Oklahoma State and as a major centre for the oil industry of the United States. Once referred to as the "Oil Capital of the World", efforts to diversify the region have led to growth in a variety of industries and culture – freeing the city from its historical dependence on a single resource.
Due to its period of rapid expansion during the 1930s, Tulsa contains one of the best offerings of intact Art Deco buildings. Examples of the unique American architecture are evident throughout the city in the form of public buildings, offices, theatres and private residences. A variety of city-wide driving tours and downtown walking tours are available to view the most impressive examples.
Another tie to American nostalgia is Tulsa's disputed claim as the birthplace of Route 66. Although not officially recognized as the birthplace of the fabled Chicago to Los Angeles highway, the project was spearheaded by a prominent Tulsa businessman. Throw-back diners and service stations still adorn Tulsa's section of the legendary road and cater to curious tourists and locals.
The city contains a wide array of cultural venues including two world-class museums, art galleries, the ballet, opera, orchestra symphony and a zoo. Distinctive neighbourhoods like Greenwood pay homage to past heritage and historical events.
Visitors looking to get outside will not be disappointed. Tulsa's access to the Ozark Plateau provides outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers with recreational opportunities.
Being ranked one of the top American cities to live in also makes it a top spot to visit. WestJet connects to Tulsa through Dallas Fort Worth via our code-share partner American Airlines.
