Visiting Tulsa for a week for business

Hey there everyone. I'll be in Tulsa for business Sept 13-18. I love sports, historical stuff, good food, pretty much anything interesting. I'll have most of the nights there free - so what do you recomend to see in your city?

Thanks in advance,

Here are a few things, hope it helps!

Walking tour of the art deco downtown:

The 18th & Boston area has several bars and restaurants all within close walking distance of each other. (there are more than this but not all have webpages)

McNellie's and El Guapo downtown are fun and usually pretty busy.

The Brady District (Brady & Main) has art galleries, glass blowing studio, restaurants and a few bars.

Brookside (Peoria Ave between 33rd Street & 41st Street) has shopping, restaurants and art galleries during the day, restaurants & bars at night. Also a couple of coffee shops.

Other post covered a wide range of good ideas.

For restaurants, try The Palace @ 15th & Peoria--chef really focuses on using local foods whenever possible. Probably one of the top 5 restaurants in the city.

If you're a runner or walker, the River Parks area is a long, narrow park on both sides of the Arkansas River--great for running or walking. The Tulsa Rose Garden, 22nd & Peoria, will likely be in bloom, another nice short walk perhaps in the early evening.

For a touch of nostalgia, check out the Tulsa Driller statue @ the fairgrounds, or drive out to the ORU Campus for architecture straight out of the Jetsons.

Hope you have fun in Tulsa!

Also Utica Square is fun to take a stroll through. Many good restaurants, some local, some chains. Stone Horse has good food, also love Polo Grill and Wild Fork, all on the higher end of the scale for Tulsa. For more reasonable fair try Peppers grill for low key TexMex. Great small shops but most close early except the chain stores. We live near Utica Square and walk over there all the time. Also near to Utica Square is Woodward Park and the Tulsa Rose Garden. Utica Square is at 21st and Utica, Woodward Park is at 21st and Peoria. Hope you find something to enjoy here!
