If you are moving your family to Tulsa, Oklahoma this summer, Tulsa movers have a great summer idea for your children to allow them to have fun in their new city – enroll them in summer camps! Enrolling your children in a summer camp in Tulsa will help them make friends and adjust to their new surroundings before the school year begins. Try sending them to a summer camp that offers activities they like or can relate to. They will also be more likely to bond friendships with kids whom they have common interests with, who are in the same upcoming grade.

YMCA of Greater Tulsa

This summer camp offers three different day camps and one overnight camp. At any of the three day camps, kids will have the opportunity to swim, play team sports, learn how to fish, practice archery and go on field trips. Overnight campers get to experience outdoor activities that span the YMCA’s 420-acre site.

Brain Balance Achievement Center

This brain-based program helps kids ages 4-17, reach their potential academically, socially and behaviorally. If you are moving to Tulsa and you believe your child has a neurobehavioral issue, Brain Balance Achievement Center will use cognitive training, nutritional guidance, and sensory motor exercises to address it.

Camp Raven at Riverfield Country Day School

Once your Tulsa movers have settled you into your new home, think about sending your kids to Camp Raven, where they have the opportunity to explore 120-acres of wooded terrain. This camp hosts activities; such as: hiking, cooking, rock climbing, river rafting, song writing and sports.

Brook Fine Arts Musical Theatre

If your child is interested in music and theater, send them to this camp! They will have the chance to learn singing, acting and dancing from professional instructors and put on a show for their parents and loved ones at camp’s end.

Have you recently moved to Tulsa and are wondering what flowers to plant to ramp up your curb-appeal? Check out this list of flowers that are easy to grow in the environmental conditions of Tulsa that will make the outside of your home look beautiful.

  1. Irises – Although they do not bloom for long, irises will have a charming effect on your home when they do. Their stems are tall and their vibrant petals are slightly ruffled at the edges.
  2. Roses – Many may think roses can be difficult, but they can actually do very well in Tulsa’s climate. Try a smaller-sized rose collection and place it on the outer portions of your garden, so that they don’t get lost behind anything that blooms larger.
  3. Daylilies – These flowers are extremely easy to grow if you give the proper amount of water, fertilizer and sun. It’s actually pretty much a guarantee. However, make sure that you maintain them. These flowers are known to spider out six feet or more in a short period of time.
  4. Garden Phlox – If you are looking for something with smaller, more abundant bulbs, try planting garden phlox. This flower is known to tolerate all kinds of Tulsa, Oklahoma weather.
  5. Sunflowers – Once you have moved to Tulsa, plant these beauties as seeds and watch their stems grow tall and their flowers shine bright. They are not named sunflowers for nothing!

Tulsa movers wish you good luck in planting your first garden at your new home!

If you have had a previous roach or bug infestation problem in your home, make sure you follow the following steps to ensure that you experience a bug free move to Tulsa. It is safe to say that you probably don’t want any unsuspected visitors coming into your new home and making your move to Tulsa unpleasant.

  1. Wash all clothes before packing them- clothes that have sat in drawers for a long period time are places that can easily hide bugs. If you don’t have time to wash everything, make sure you are inspecting each piece of clothing before putting it in a moving box.
  2. Inspect all furniture – If a piece of furniture has cushions, make sure you remove them and check all angles. Bugs are likely to seek refuge in tight spaces like the cushion cracks of a couch.
  3. Carefully look over appliances – Roaches and bugs alike, hide out in electronics and appliances that can’t be opened. It’s probably best you get rid of such items before you move to Tulsa.
  4. Leave behind any plants that lived indoors- If you have previously experienced a roach or bug infestation, leave potted indoor plants in the past. Bugs hide in warm dirt and may reappear in your new Tulsa home.
  5. Use new moving boxes from your Tulsa moving company – New boxes are easy to inspect and will not be infected with anything. They also signify a clean, fresh start before you even move out of your old home.

East Tulsa is a lovely place to call home, but it has not had much retail development in the past thirty years. Sure, a store or two will pop up from time to time, but retail development has not kept up with residential development and our town’s population increase. But your Tulsa moving company recently learned that a large developer, Horizon Group Properties, proposed plans for a huge shopping outlet in East Tulsa. Woo hoo! The proposed name for the center is the Outlet Shoppes at Tulsa.

The proposal detailed a 400,000-square-foot, 95 store retail outlet that could potentially be ready by 2017. The retail outlet would bring in plenty of big-named stores, more eating options, and even additional offices and hotels. It would also create about 1,200 permanent jobs; which is great for the residents of East Tulsa. Horizon often partners with big brands and stores like: Coach, Ralph Lauren, and Michael Kors. The development company’s plans also include a summer concert series and a farmers market.

The proposed lot is at 129th East Avenue, at Interstate 44. The lot is thought to be perfect for such an outlet mall. It is right next to the highway and exit, and the land is solid for building. Because of this, other developers are also making proposals for an outlet mall.

If you are moving to Tulsa, you should definitely keep up with the development of this potential retail outlet; it will bring convenience and entertainment to your new home town!

If you are new to Tulsa, you should know that this town loves its beer, and Marshall Brewing Company is proof. The Tulsa-based brewing company has been around for decades and has grown increasingly popular in recent years. To answer the craft beer demand in Tulsa, Marshall Brewing Company created Arrowhead Pale Ale. This seasonal ale is only available during the summer months, so if you are new to town, now is the time to try this much-anticipated beverage! Your Tulsa movers know you will be glad you did!

Arrowhead Pale Ale is typically available from Memorial Day to Labor Day, and will hit liquor stores and bars across Tulsa on Thursday, May 21st. If you have not tried the popular brew yet, it is a light pale ale with a hoppy flavor that includes a hint of citrus, and is 5.2 percent alcohol. To celebrate the release of the summer ale, Marshall Brewing Company is throwing an official launch party on May 29, at James E. McNellie’s South City, a popular Tulsa public house.

Arrowhead Pale Ale will replace Marshall’s spring brew, Revival Red Ale. It will be replaced by the brewing company’s Oktoberfest Lager in late August or early September. Make sure to try this seasonal favorite. It is really popular with the locals, and for good reason! It will be the perfect complement to all of the barbecue you grill up this summer. Buy a few six-packs and invite the neighbors for a good time, Tulsa-style!

After moving to Tulsa, you may not expect to find many art studios, museums, and cultural centers. After all, Tulsa is in the Midwest. But once you do some exploring, you will be pleasantly surprised by what Tulsa has to offer its residents. You will find plenty of places to appreciate art, learn about different disciplines, and take your children for an educational family day.

For instance, Tulsans flock to the Brady Arts District during First Friday Art Crawl. This monthly crawl is held on the first Friday of the month, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. During the crawl, art galleries, studios, and museums open their doors to the public for free. Mini galleries also pop up, shops stay open late, and you can expect to see street performances, live music, vendors, and other entertainment. For instance, this month, 12 galleries and studios opened their doors, six bars and restaurants featured art, and there was entertainment like: live music, dance contests, and a performance by the Tulsa Symphony Orchestra. When First Friday Art Crawl began in 2007, about 50 people came to the first event. Today, more than 3,000 attend.

Tulsa is also home to the Philbrook Museum of Art, which opens its doors to the public, free of charge, the second Saturday of each month. Special entertainment is booked for these events, like theatre dancers. Attendance to Philbrook’s free admission days has grown in popularity as well. 257 people came to its first event, and now, about 2,000 people come to the museum the second Saturday of the month.

Tulsa has grown to be a pretty big city. As such, its cultural scene as exploded. If you are new to town, make sure your family takes advantage of all that Tulsa has to offer!

If you recently moved to Tulsa, you may not know about the tragic Memorial Day of 1984. Since the tragic incident, the city of Tulsa has become an example for flood control with its network of ponds and channels. The city has continued to prevent floods by moving the water away from the neighborhood and residences.

Tulsa city officials have developed a sustainable system to satisfy the high demand for housing in the area, while preserving the safety of the people. Signs are up to warn people where possible flooding could take place, because in the city of Tulsa, safety is first.

The results speak for themselves. The future seems bright. The housing industry is going up and people are lining up to buy homes. Now that is an investment we can trust! Long gone are the days where water floods and damages homes and buildings to the point of no repair. The success is the product of a well-planned model and appropriate resource allocation.

The city of Tulsa, in conjunction to The Federal Emergency Management Agency, funded this program. Now, residences no longer have to worry about flooding, despite Tulsa’s history. The retention flood is a mix between cement channels and retention floods. The city has turned most of the land into parks and athletic fields. Tulsa won’t allow history to repeat itself.

If you are new to the Tulsa area, rest assured that your home will be safe from flooding. With all the new developments, your Tulsa movers know that our city is safe and wonderful place to raise a family!

Finding quality toys can be a struggle today. Everything is plastic, everything breaks, and nothing seems to teach kids anything valuable. But this will not be the case for Tulsa residents for much longer, because Tulsa Toy Depot is going to fill the void. The quality toy store will open on June 15th, and it will sell well-built and educational products, and plenty of books. Your Tulsa relocation company is really excited to check out this family-owned store!

Tulsa Toy Depot will carry toys targeted to kids up to 12 years old. As a small, quality toy store, it will carry products from smaller toy makers that are not available in big stores like Toys ‘R’ Us and Target. Brands like Fat Brain Toys, Kahootz and Manhattan Toy will all be available. These toys will also help kids develop motor, visual and verbal skills. The inventory will include wooden and hand-crafted items along with toys from countries like Germany, Italy and France. There will also be plenty of items made in the U.S. Ryan McAdams, owner of Tulsa Tony Depot, said that he will sell “heirloom” toys, meaning toys that people will be able to pass down to their own children.

If you have little ones and would love to get them some quality and educational toys, make sure to check out Tulsa Toy Depot in June. It will be located at 10114 S. Sheridan Road in the old Mecca Coffee South building. Take your kids too, so they can find toys that get them excited!

If you are a parent living in Tulsa, you have probably been to the Tulsa Zoo or are planning a visit soon. It is a great place for kids to interact with animals and let their imaginations run wild. It seems plenty of families have recognized the zoo’s attributes as of late, because this past March was Tulsa Zoo’s best performing March ever in terms of attendance! If you do not take your Tulsa relocation company’s word for it, numbers don’t lie! People really seem to enjoy all that Tulsa Zoo has to offer.

The Tulsa Zoo attributes this climb in attendance to the amazing exhibits it currently has. Zoorasic Park 2 drew tons of guests. The temporary exhibit showcases 11 dino species, like the T-Tex, the Baryonyx and the Triceratops. Zoorasic Park 2 will be open until August 31. Another exhibit, the Mary K. Chapman Rhino Reserve, also drew crowds. The updated reserve houses the zoo’s white rhinos and allows for more interaction between them and guests. The reserve cost about $3.5 million, but the rhinos are a big attraction for the zoo, so it made sense for the facility. The Rhino Reserve is the first of many renovations planned for the next 20 years.

Spring break is typically the busiest nine-day period of the year, and this year was particularly busy, bringing in record attendance for the Tulsa Zoo. 56,099 guests visited, which broke the 2009 record of 52,133 guests. With these kinds of numbers, 2015 may turn out to be Tulsa Zoo’s busiest year on record! If you have little ones, plan a day at the Tulsa Zoo soon, and make sure to check out Zoorasic and the Rhino Reserve!
