img_3844.jpgLooking at downtown Tulsa today, you might liken her to someone preparing to go out on a first date. She's all in a frenzy getting her sidewalks ready, smoothing her roads, and just doing about everything she can to make herself look all pretty before meeting her significant other....the BOK arena. September 1 is the date of this romantic interlude when the first game of the season is played and the city plays host to thousands of adoring fans.

The walking tour is an approximately two and a half mile brisk walk around the downtown area, going in and out of some of Tulsa's most significant buildings. These structures not only let you peek at what she looked like in her glory days...but also gives you clues as to what this city plans to look like when she's all grown up.

But don't go just by her pretty new looks. Tulsa's beauty lies more than skin deep. Come on this tour and find out all that Tulsa has to offer.
