I was born and raised in Oklahoma. It’s home & I don’t see myself living anywhere else. I love to travel and see as much as I can, but don’t get me wrong, my roots run deep! Growing up here was amazing as a child. My mom taught me at a young age that Oklahoma is beautiful & my dad taught me how to go explore it! Here are 5 places that make Tulsa Awesome
Natural Falls State Park
The 77-foot waterfall at Natural Falls State Park is accompanied by several smaller falls that flow from the porous walls of a fern-covered rock face. Hikers can view the falls from a platform above and then walk down to the base of the falls to soak in the incredible scenery at eye level. You can spend hours exploring the beautiful land and natural springs. It’s located just an hour outside of downtown TULSA. Click on the Map link for directions.
