Tulsa (OK) Senior Living Communities
To the uninitiated, Tulsa may seem like a western city, wrapped in oil and encased in cowboys. But it’s much more than that. “The Oil Capital of the World” is also a topnotch cultural center. And with plenty of affordable Tulsa senior living options, retirees will find a lot to like about this city on the Arkansas River.
For a big city, Tulsa is inexpensive. The overall cost of living is 10% below the national average. Some senior living options are equally economical. For example, a one-bedroom in an assisted living facility averages $3,161 a month (the national average is $3,250). A private room in a nursing home averages $155 a day, while a semi-private averages $135.
Tulsa takes its art seriously. The Gilcrease Museum is considered one the country’s best for American art, including the “world’s largest collection of art and artifacts of the American West.” The Philbrook Museum, housing over 8,500 works from Impressionists to Native American to the Baroque era, is listed as one of the top 65 art museums in the country. The museum was given to Tulsa by the late oil baron Waite Phillips.
Among Tulsa performing arts are the Tulsa Ballet, Tulsa Opera, Light Opera Oklahoma, Tulsa Symphony, and the Tulsa Signature Symphony. The beautiful BOK Center hosts events from country concerts to the Cirque du Soleil. The Tulsa Zoo has over 1,500 and 436 species, while the Oklahoma Aquarium houses over 200 exhibits.
If you like to get your heart pumping, you’ll love the River Trails, over 50 miles of trails for jogging, walking, and biking, with 10 miles hugging the bank of the Arkansas River. The city manages 6,000 acres that include nature centers, pools, tennis courts, trails, fitness facilities and golf courses.
