Plan Your Visit: Must See Places During Your Time in Tulsa

Hey there! 👋 I’m Tino, Tulsa Remote’s Recruitment Event Specialist, and I’m here to be your Tulsa tour guide. One of the best parts of my job is introducing people to our city and helping them experience the best of what Tulsa has to offer. 

Whether you’re just coming to town for the weekend or are here to explore your new home, here are my top tips to make the most of your time in Tulsa! 

One of the questions I get asked most frequently is, “Where should I eat dinner when I’m in town!?” My recommendation? Et Al Tulsa. This chefs' collective was nominated by the James Beard Foundation as a Semifinalist for the Best New Restaurant in 2023. They create delicious and unique menus, and whether you plan to join them for Dumpling Night, Japanese Breakfast, or one of their other dining programs, this is a meal you don’t want to miss. Follow @etal.tulsa for menu updates and details.

No matter what cuisine you're in the mood for, you can find it in Tulsa! Click here to check out more of Tulsa’s favorite restaurants, such as Queenie’s, Mother Road Market, or Lone Wolf Bahn Mi.

For an incredibly impactful and educational experience, I encourage you to visit Greenwood Rising. This award-winning, world-class history center honors the legacy of Black Wall Street before and after the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre. Your visit will connect you with the entrepreneurial spirit of Greenwood’s Black citizens through interactive exhibits and informative displays. Visit Greenwoodrising.org to purchase tickets. 

Next, Philbrook Museum of Art is a MUST-SEE. This historic Italian Renaissance villa-turned-art museum has been named the #2 art museum in the US by USA Today and offers historic paintings, beautiful gardens, and a full schedule of fun events for adults and kids alike. Be sure to walk to the back of the property and relive your childhood by swinging on the museum’s giant swings!

Another MUST-SEE is Gathering Place, Tulsa’s incredible 66.5-acre riverfront park, and don’t miss Discovery Lab, Gathering Place’s interactive kids' science museum.

The next stop on your Tulsa tour should be the Tulsa Arts District! Plan your visit on the first weekend of the month so you can attend the First Friday Art Crawl. You’ll see Tulsa come to life as art galleries and studios open their doors to the public while the attending local musicians, vendors, and restaurants will give you a true taste of Tulsa! 

While you're in the neighborhood, don’t miss Guthrie Green, Tulsa’s urban garden located in the heart of downtown, and before you leave, take a tropical break for happy hour on the patio at Tulsa’s classic tiki bar - Saturn Room! 

Lastly, cap off your visit with an evening of live music at Mercury Lounge. Voted “Tulsa's Best Bar with the Best Bartenders,” this neighborhood dive bar by day becomes a fantastic music venue at night. They have live performances almost every night of the week, and it’s the best place in town to watch a regional punk band or a legendary songwriter.

Lucky for you, Tulsa boasts an incredible live music scene, and there are a variety of music venues around town, including the award-winning BOK Center and historic Cain’s Ballroom. Check out  VisitTulsa.com for more on Tulsa’s music venues and where you can catch an upcoming show.
