A town which flourished into a vibrant city as a result of nearby oil discoveries, Tulsa offers an insight into the "Roaring Twenties" of America and the evolution of the nation in the early 20th century. With the rapid growth and vast wealth, Tulsa became home to the architecture, art and culture which came with it.
To this day, the city is teeming with historic Art Deco style buildings and is home to great collections of art which were amassed by the wealthy. Combine this with the lush green hills, mountains and forests among which the city is located, and you have the ideal base for cruising the countryside in your hire car. Auto Europe offers several car hire pick up locations in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and a large fleet selection, so finding a car rental in Tulsa is both easy and economical.
One of the first things visitors to Tulsa notice, is the many great examples of Art Deco design present in the city. Notable examples worth checking out are the First Christian Church of Tulsa, and the Boston Avenue Methodist Church, with both buildings being in excellent condition and representing the style of architecture.
Drive your rental car a little east of the Arkansas River banks, not far from the city centre, and visit the Philbrook Museum of Art, another outstanding example of 1920's architecture. Originally a 72 room mansion built for the family of an oil magnate, the building and surrounding grounds were donated to the city as an art gallery, and feature over 8000 works of art, some of which date back to the Italian Renaissance.
With the scenic countryside ready to be explored, Tulsa is an ideal place for departing on a drive along famous Route 66. Jump in your hire car and head east of Tulsa to Catoosa, a small city nearby. Here you can see one of the most famous attractions found along Route 66, which is the Giant Whale, complete with picnic grounds, and once a highly popular swimming hole for locals as well as those driving along the highway. For a deeper look into the famous Route, head west from Tulsa in your hire car, to the city of Clinton, home to the original Route 66 Museum. The museum is full of great info for those lucky enough to be touring with a hire car.
