Tulsa is the sort of city that swaggers with a confidence that’s not overly prideful—sort of like a swankified silver belt buckle on a comfortable leather belt. She may be Oklahoma’s second-largest city, but she definitely doesn’t play second fiddle. Underneath a canopy of the country’s third-largest collection of art-deco architecture, Tulsa shades a history of "desperate Native Americans—and

white desperadoes; down-and-out wildcatters—as well as up-and-coming millionaires," according to local historian Danney Goble. Outdoor recreation carries a lot of weight in Tulsa’s 187-square-mile geographic footprint: 135 tennis courts, 88 playgrounds, 23 public golf courses, 10 disc-golf courses, as well as 50 miles of scenic biking–running trails within the river parks system. Add 135 city parks and another 750 acres of county parks plus a rich mix of arts and culture, and you’ll see why Tulsa dubs itself an "All-American City."
