The story of downtown Tulsa’s early history which grew to prominence during the oil boom of the 1920s can be seen today through the lavish Art Deco style buildings, which housed some of the country’s wealthiest businessmen of the time. The infatuation with Art Deco at the time has left Tulsa’s downtown and skyline as one of the finest examples anywhere of Zigzag skyscrapers, the Streamline style of the '30s and the Classical style of the Great Depression and the New Deal. In fact only New York City and Miami boast more examples of this opulent, yet streamlined architectural style.
Sports, event and nightlife all live in downtown Tulsa as well offering sports fans, concert-goers and visitors a bevy of activity to engage before and after their event.
