At a stunning height of 76 feet, The Golden Driller is a monument is a truly inspiring sight to behold. Although this giant has watched over the Tulsa Expo Center from its current site since 1966, it was originally built in 1953 for the International Petroleum Exposition. The monument depicts an oil worker standing tall besides an oil derrick, and is the fourth tallest statue in the entire country. While the Golden Driller continues to serve as a testament to the dedication of all those who have made their mark in the Petroleum industry, it has also come to be a popular tourist attraction that offers a rather unique photo opportunity. The Golden Driller has been erected just outside the Tulsa Expo Center and is clearly visible as you drive along East 21st Street.

Tulsa, located in the state of Oklahoma, is situated right on the Arkansas River at the base of the Ozark Mountains. The Tulsa Opera, Expo Square, Philbrook Museum of Art, as well as the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame are some of the major attractions that draw people to this second largest city in the state. The city is well known for being a capital in the oil industry for the majority of the 20th Century, and landmarks and holdovers from its oil heritage can still be seen all over the city.
The Center of the Universe is one of the most unique attractions in the city of Tulsa. Its strange quality lies in that it can strangely change the sound of your voice if you stand directly at the center of its 30-inch cement circle. The speaker's voice assumes a vibrating nature that can be heard by the speaker alone. There is also no established explanation regarding what causes this unusual phenomenon. However, some theories claim that the parabolic reflectivity of the planter walls may be causing it. The extraordinary nature of this attraction cannot be denied, thus making it a must-visit spot for those in Tulsa.
