Tulsa is a great place to visit. There is so much to do and see. Tulsa is filled with museums, entertainment venues, and restaurants. No matter what your tastes are there is a little something for everyone.
While Tulsa is a great place to visit the weather in Oklahoma can make it challenging to know what to pack. Oklahoma is known for the somewhat wild weather we have. One of the questions I hear most often when visiting other parts of the country is “ how do you deal with all of the tornados in Oklahoma”? While Oklahoma does have a fair share of tornados they don’t come through the state as often as you’d think.

The hot Oklahoma sun can really take a toll on visitors that aren’t used to the humid climate.
