While San Francisco ranked number 1, Tulsa comes in at a respectable #38 on Bloomberg magazine’s America’s 50 Best Cities list. According to the article, greater emphasis was placed on leisure amenities this year. The figures for the ranking came from data company Onboard Informatics and the nonprofit Trust for Public Land.
The post mentions just a few reasons Tulsa ranks so high on the list.
