Once an oil boomtown, this vibrant city is now a cultural hub.

Tulsa, Oklahoma, was a turn-of-the-century oil boomtown that has evolved into a cultural hub. And much of the current creativity revolves around music, thanks to the thriving recording scene that draws top musicians — who stay to play at its clubs and bars. A visit to this Sooner State city should also include a tour of not one but two arts districts and a crawl devoted to the city’s burgeoning craft-beer scene.
