Tulsa vacation rentals

Tulsa is Oklahoma's artsy, boho hub

The self-proclaimed art and culture hub of Oklahoma State, Tulsa has risen and risen since the days it relied on oil drillers to fuel its livelihood. Now, it's a curious combination of fun-loving students and innovative yuppies that can be seen drifting down the tree-peppered boulevards in the shadow of those famous Art Deco skyscrapers. Now, it's cool coffee shops that inhabit the street corners. Now, it's renowned art galleries and performing arts centers that beckon from the edge of the Arkansas River. What's more, Tulsa vacation rentals come in all shapes and sizes, from homey family retreats on the edge Ozarks to boutique apartments in lively Downtown.

Calling culture vultures, foodies, and music lovers

Tulsa earned its reputation for artistic and cultural prowess the hard way, funneling investment into all-new and enticing expo centers and exhibition spaces. The result is a town with more galleries and theaters than you can shake a fried Oklahoma catfish at, and one that’s enticed entrepreneurs and foodies to set up all those international bistros and BBQ joints down Cherry Street and in the Blue Dome district. Music is also an important pastime in these parts, and you're sure to enjoy the medley of oompah bands and Dust Bowl blues that transpires between the beer halls and cocktail dives.

Art Deco monuments and Dust Bowl blues in Tulsa

Bag Tulsa vacation rentals in the heart of the Downtown district if you want to be a short stroll from pulsing Dust Bowl blues bars, jazz museums, and the acclaimed Woody Guthrie Center – where you can trace the rise and rise of one of Oklahoma's greatest. Nearby, you'll also be able to wonder up at the elegant Art Deco rises of the Union Station Depot and other skyscrapers, or seek out mysterious Indian ritual spots down Cheyenne Avenue. And that's not even mentioning more off-beat attractions like the Oxley Nature Center, with its boardwalk strolls, or the cinemas and cafés in River Parks.

It's all about the October blowout in Tulsa

There's really no better time to feel the beating pulse of Tulsa than in October. That's when huge shindigs like the Oklahoma State Fair and the beer-sloshing Oktoberfest – some say the largest in the world outside of Bavaria – come to town. You can also expect milder days of dry weather throughout the whole of fall, which is perfect if you're prepping for a sightseeing trip through the Blue Dome district and that Art Deco Downtown.

Tulsa: Between the Dust Bowl and the Ozarks

You can always rumble down to the dirt tracks and challenging biking paths of the Turkey Mountain Urban Wilderness Area if you're desperate to get the adrenaline flowing close to the city center. However, that sprawling park is just a taster of what's to come in Oklahoma's bona fide Green Country, where the Ozark Mountains take over from the plains. Look out for Tulsa vacation rentals close to the rises of those peaks if you want to be within reach of backcountry wonders like the Dripping Springs Falls and the long-distance Ankle Express Trail.
