• The South Side of Tulsa is Where It’s At

  • All cities have a south side of town and for many, it isn’t the part of their city that shines. But Tulsa is different! The south side of T-Town is landscaped with luxurious homes and beautiful apartment buildings. Skirted by Interstate 44 (Skelly Bypass), Bixby, Oklahoma, the Arkansas River and the City of Jenks and Broken Arrow, the land is getting less and less with all the development going on.

    What Does South Tulsa Have to Offer?

    The area has become a more prosperous demographic as businesses that tailor to the residents have settled here. Such as some of the biggest automotive dealers in Tulsa are located along a stretch of South Memorial Drive, and The Riverwalk Crossing Shopping Center offers residents fine dining, a movie theater and plenty of shopping.

    The Oklahoma Aquarium, with it freshwater fish display, is Oklahoma’s only one and it offers visitors a selection of saltwater animals too, even sharks! More than twenty-thousand pieces of fishing tackle are on display there at the Karl and Beverly White National Fishing Tackle Museum.

    Quality healthcare is available on this part of T-Town with St. Francis Hospital and multiple medical offices located here. The Braeswood neighborhood is one of Tulsa’s most prominent and includes more medical facilities like the Cancer Treatment Center of America as well as Saint Francis Hospital South.

    More Medical and More Shopping

    The 71st Street area is anchored by the Woodland Hills Mall and the dining options are endless in the area, too. If you can’t find what you need or want in the mall, there are more shopping centers around it, making this an endless shopping area.

    Here is where John Q. Hammonds Renaissance Hotel is situated, a 4-star accommodation that offers luxury rooms, as well as conference rooms and meeting rooms. With its locale just off US Highway 69, which runs through the eastern part of south Tulsa, it makes it perfect for the business traveler.

    Education Abounds

    The Southern part of Tulsa is home to Oklahoma’s largest schools: Jenks and Union High School and Broken Arrow nearby. Memorial High School and private Holland Hall make southern Tulsa their home, too, just as does the Tulsa Community College.
