How About a Staycation?

Having lived in Tulsa most of or all of your life, you may not remember all of the great attractions that exist within a short drive. The real bonus is that you'll save a ton of money on lodging and food because you're staying at your own place! Here are our top 5 attractions for a Tulsa staycation (narrowing it to 5 is really difficult!)
