The Oklahoma Aquarium located just south of Tulsa has really come a long way in the past couple years. There once was a time when I’d say, “Gee, what’s there to do in this town.” No longer! We have the nation’s most popular zoo, the spectacular aquarium, sports teams, lots of night life and a cost of living that can’t be beat.
We took the kids to the aquarium yesterday, bought a family pass for the year and they absolutely LOVE it. The walkthrough shark tank was a massive hit. The jelly fish and sea-horses too. Best of all was the petting tank with the rays and sand sharks. The sea-turtle and otter exhibits should be cool too once they’re completed.
So, if you ever find yourself in Tulsa for, oh a Google interview (no, seriously, their newest data center is here)… make sure you spend some time visiting the local attractions. Tulsa’s a great place to call home.
