Choose Tulsa - A Guide to Relocating to the Tulsa Region

Welcome to Tulsa, where East Coast sophistication, southern charm and western quirkiness thrive in a city built on the fortunes of oil barons and are seeded with the cultural affluence they brought to the heart of the Wild West.

It’s a city where musicians and artists coexist with cowboys and business executives, where coats and ties go with jeans, where locals brag they have been to the “Center of the Universe” and where lakegoers, mountain bikers and backpackers finish their weekends with an opera and a meal at a five-star restaurant.

It’s a city whose low cost of living and short commutes times — the second-shortest among major American cities — go hand-in-hand with its walking districts, museums, music venues, parks and schools, fostering a quality of life that has garnered accolades from a host of national publications.

Tulsans have an undeniable respect for the rich history upon which this city was built, and like those who built the former “Oil Capital of the World,” they are transforming the city’s landscape again today. Nestled between the lush Ozark hills and miles of wild prairie, this former oil boom town anchors a bustling metropolis of about 1 million residents who have embraced a new boom: One of culture, downtown revitalization, thriving entertainment districts and a renewed optimism for the future of what has been called America’s most beautiful city.

An architectural masterpiece, the BOK Center, and a new baseball park  spurred the rebirth of Tulsa’s downtown five years ago, and today, downtown’s landscape is changing by the minute as caches of oil boom-era art deco buildings are refurbished, and as new restaurants and nightlife venues reinvigorate the city’s core. We invite you to be part of the story. We’re Tulsans, and we’re happy you’re here. *Source: Tulsa Chamber of Commerce
