If you’re like most people living in Tulsa, you’re ready for Winter to be over and Spring to be on its way. You’re probably tired of bundling up in a winter coat and you’re likely eager for warm Spring days and time spent outdoors.
Unfortunately, we’re still in the thick of Winter, but thankfully that doesn’t mean you have to waste away the next few weeks bored inside your homes. There are many fun and affordable things to do during those cold winter weekends that make living in Tulsa more enjoyable.
Located in Jenks, the Oklahoma Aquarium is open year round from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm and until 9:00 pm on Tuesdays. The aquarium features over a thousand different animals including jellyfish, sharks, coral and sea turtles. With over 100 special exhibits (including stingray petting and feeding turtles) the aquarium is certain to entertain all ages! Tickets are less than $16 for adults and $12 for children 3-12 years of age. Children two and under are free!
Sky Zone Trampoline Park
Sky Zone first opened in Tulsa in 2013 and since then has provided lots of fun for all ages through open jumping on a variety of trampolines. They also feature a SkySlam court, SkyRobics fitness classes, Ultimate Dodgeball and a pit filled with over 10,000 foam cubes. Sky Zone is open at various times throughout the week with special activities built in, including toddler time and glow jump. The cost to jump is dependent on the amount of time you jump, starting at $11 for a 30 minute jump and increasing from there.
Whether you are bringing along the whole family or a visiting by yourself, checking out one of Tulsa’s many museums is a great option for an indoor activity this Winter. Take your pick from the Philbrook Museum of Art (featuring art, of course!), the Woody Guthrie Center (featuring Woody, of course!), the Gilcrease Museum (featuring American History and Art), the Children’s Museum (featuring educational activities and play for children) and many others, including the Tulsa Air and Space Museum, Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame and the Sherwin Miller Museum of Jewish Art. Each museum varies in hours and pricing, and a few offer discounted (or free) pricing on special weekends.
Make a plan to watch the Tulsa Oilers play at the BOK center this Winter! With games scheduled through April and most occurring around weekends, a hockey game is guaranteed to offer something different to your normal weekend activities. Prices for tickets range from $16 to $57 depending on where you prefer to sit.
Finally, one great thing to do in Tulsa year round (but especially in the Winter months) is go to a concert at one of Tulsa’s many awesome concert venues. Just about any weekend you can find musicians of all different genres playing at one of the venues, which include Brady Theater, Cain’s Ballroom, the BOK Center, Tulsa Performing Arts Center, Tulsa Symphony Orchestra and the Hard Rock Casino. Check out each of their websites for a schedule of events!
We hope these indoor weekend activities help you stay warm and enjoy the last few weeks of Winter because there certainly is so much to do in Tulsa!
