Tulsa, OK ( The good, the bad, and the ugly)

Okay I'm getting an interview next week for a position on the big OK. Working out of Tulsa and hoping I'll get an offer of employment since it would be a great job and nice pay raise. I'm a smart guy so I do my research about my "potential" new area of living.

I hope this doesn't get ugly but be honest about what I should know about Tulsa, OK.

Re: Tulsa, OK ( The good, the bad, and the ugly)

I love Tulsa, have family there and visit often. I grew up 2 hours north in Newkirk, ok it's the "big city" not a lot of crime lots I nice areas to live. Not a lot of crime outside of down town. Couple of good private schools with good high school football programs( if you have high school boys ) public schools are good too. I myself wouldn't live in a big city but I like to visit! T town is way better than okc plus you have Stillwater with okie light close by for the college ball!

Re: Tulsa, OK ( The good, the bad, and the ugly)

Thanks for the info. I'm a empty nester with both kids gone so those concerns are done. I'm open to living "outside" of town since I prefer peace and quiet. I'll have to see what happens with the job offer, Interview went pretty good but I know I'm not the only person they are interviewing.

What's the hunting like around Tulsa??

Re: Tulsa, OK ( The good, the bad, and the ugly)

We'll close by (within an hour) it's decent, get in on some private land and hunt the brushy draws and you'll find the big boys. I never hunted much more than 20 miles east of Stillwater but the general area holds big boys. You have to rember though it's Oklahoma and seems as though everyone in the state hunts so a lot of the public land close to Tulsa will be I've hunted. Where I'm from in Newkirk there's not a lot of people at all so the hunting is good for deer and pheasant. Check out the owasso area if your into the country side living close to tulsa

Thanks!! Once I get a better hold on the place it could turn into a permanent living area. Owasso sounds good. For the drive even 45 minutes travel works for me.

Their beer has about half the alcohol content of other states, which is just unacceptable

Re: Tulsa, OK ( The good, the bad, and the ugly)

Tulsa isn't bad but it wouldn't be my pick to live in OK. Edmond is my fav as is northern OK. Problem is there is not any industry in those areas to make a good living. Good luck on your interview buddy

Re: Tulsa, OK ( The good, the bad, and the ugly)

any suburb of tulsa is ok, jenks, broken arrow, owasso, they are all growing like crazy over the past couple years.
I'd not live IN Tulsa, I have a buddy who lives there who can give you the where to stay away from info when your ready, but suburbs are almost all really nice areas

tulsa gets congested quite frequently, rush hour etc. almost feels like LA to me sometimes, lol.
