This year, we're going to Tulsa!
The second-largest city in Oklahoma and the 47th most populous in the U.S. at approximately 1 million people, Tulsa, once known as the “oil capital of the world”, attracts people from every walk of life wanting to live even just a slice of their life on Tulsa Time.
Tulsa is a place where large, headquartered companies like QuikTrip, BOK Financial Corporation and ONEOK coexist with a thriving and ambitious local scene that defines cultural life in Tulsa by way of an engaging arts community, a culinary utopia and a seemingly endless amount of unique boutiques.
Aside from being a place of opportunity, Tulsa boasts an impressive amount of art deco architecture that goes toe to toe with the largest cities, a half billion-dollar park ranked best in the U.S. that beckons to be explored by all, a rich history of music that inspired a genre named after the city and so much more. There’s just no place quite like T-Town.
