As with much of the rest of Oklahoma, Tulsa doesn't really have "peak" or "low" seasons in terms of travel. That doesn't mean that there's no reason for tourists to visit, however. To the contrary, it's one of the greenest and most attractive areas in state. It's also home to the BOK Center, one of the state's premier concert venues, and the Oklahoma Aquarium. And if you're looking for good dining, this is one of the regional centers for a diversity of great restaurants.

The city has a good range of hotel options. Rather than having hotels clustered in just a few areas like some cities do, you'll find options spread all over Tulsa and with a wide range of prices. If you want to stay a little outside of the city, additional options can be found in Claremore and Pryor. If you're looking for options that are at Tulsa International Airport, there is a Clarion and a Hilton Garden Inn directly on the property, and you'll also find a number of other chains not far away on Interstate 244.

Tips for Visiting Tulsa

Tulsa is part of Oklahoma's "Green Country" region, which is considered one of the most appealing places in the state to visit, but there is no real pattern of tourists flooding it in great numbers during any particular season. Traffic may increase for certain isolated events, but generally not for extended periods of time. Some periods where you will see higher hotels prices than usual include graduation at the University of Oklahoma, the twice-annual Wanenmacher Arms Show (in April and November) and during the Mayfest and Blue Dome arts festivals (which take place on the same weekend in mid-May). Other events that have lower traffic and are worth checking out include the Conestoga science fiction convention in July, the Tulsa State Fair in September and the very large Oktoberfest celebration (sometimes cited as the largest outside of Germany).

As far as dining goes, Tulsa boasts a wide range of options. You can find just about any type of cuisine you're looking for, but two city favorites are BBQ and steak. Visitors are also sometimes surprised by how strong the coffee scene is in Tulsa.

Weather tends to be moderate throughout the year. Winter days are generally only cold when the wind is high. The primary weather event concern in Tulsa is tornadoes. These can happen any time throughout the year, but the risk is much higher in the warmer months, particularly during the spring.
