Tulsans will tell you they never want to live anywhere else
Tulsa is the center of cultural refinement in Oklahoma. Tulsa’s pioneer oilmen bequeathed a rich cultural legacy and passion for the arts that give the city a level of polish and sophistication that is unmatched in the state. From opera, ballet and orchestral music to world-class art and shopping, Tulsa combines the advantages of a smaller city with the broad artistic and cultural assets commonly associated with bigger cities on the coasts.
Tulsa is a community known for its philanthropic nature, boasting one of the largest per capita contribution rates in the country. It is home to the Tulsa Community Foundation, America’s largest community foundation. And the Tulsa Area United Way raises more than $20 million annually – a staggering amount for a city Tulsa’s size.
