Red Bud Valley
3.8 miles north of Highway 44 it is an easy drive to this beautiful site. I love to be outdoors so I went here with my boyfriend. I fell in love with the place. There is everything from open fields to caves and everything in between. If you just feel like excaping the city for some quiet and relaxation this is the place to do it. No bikes or pets.
Listed rightfully on the National Register of Historic Places, the Mid-Continent Building (aka the Cosden Building from an early oil baron, Josh Cosden) has stood as an ornament to Tulsa architecture since its construction around 1918. Originally half the present height, builders in the 1980s added another twenty floors, but preserved all the intricate details and posh amenities of its original beauty. This building is a delight to behold and a wonder to visit.
Livin' On Tulsa Time
"Oklahoma's Second Largest City"
Tulsa grew up under similar conditions as Oklahoma City, and as equals reaching maturity at the same time, neither grew up in the other's shadow. Like the larger capital city, Tulsa's downtown is a wonderful collection of old hotels and modern skyscrapers, with many of the former on the national register of historic places. Around the city center are a fine assortment of religious houses and other architectural gems, and farther out are the mom and pop businesses and merchandise houses of a modern metropolis. Known as the "Oil Capital of America," Tulsa has world-class art museums and an edge on Oklahoma City as the more cosmpolitan of the two. City streets are essentially listed alphabetically, so visitors can usually find their way around town without too much trouble.
