1. The Golden Driller

Replete with hardhat and gloves, this 76-foot tall behemoth is impressive. Leaning on an oil derrick, you’ll find him looking south over 21st St, between Yale and Harvard.


2. Philbrook Museum of Art

Unrivaled in both its collection of beautiful art and its calming gardens, the Philbrook Museum of Art is one of Tulsa’s best opportunities for those looking to become a little more acquainted with the finer arts.

3. Jim’s Coney Island/Never on Sunday Greek Restaurant

Never ceasing to amaze its patrons with either coneys or savory Greek foods, Jim’s is a major staple in the midtown Tulsa food scene. My recommendation? Can’t go wrong with a gyro or grape leaves at this place. Thank me later!

4. Tulsa Zoo

Home to over 400 species of animals, the Tulsa’s zoo is consistently ranked high amongst the likes of bigger cities like Omaha and San Diego. Tulsa Zoo sits on 84-acres at the north edge of town inside of Mohawk Park on 36th Street North.

5. Oklahoma Aquarium

In 2003, the Oklahoma Aquarium opened up on the edge of Jenks — right across the Arkansas River from Tulsa. With easy access from the Creek Turnpike, this 72,000-square-foot facility houses several thousand species of aquatic animals, including one of the most impressive shark exhibits you’ll ever see.
