Where To Stay In Tulsa, Oklahoma + Top Things To Do

Where To Stay In Tulsa:

We stayed at the boutique Ambassador Hotel in downtown Tulsa and we could not have been happier! The 55 room hotel is located inside one of Tulsa’s most historic buildings. The décor is so chic and modern all while still having an old romance feel. The staff was so kind, helpful and got us checked in and all bags up to our room so quickly when we checked in at midnight!

As soon as we walked into our Ambassador Suite I was immediately delighted! The luxurious décor continued onto each of the rooms and I was so happy to see that there was a separate living space from the master bedroom. With our little one going to bed so early, it’s nice to have that extra space when Mom and Dad want to stay up enjoying room service from The Chalkboard restaturant that was also located inside of the hotel.

Clearly baby Weaver and I were enjoying our relaxing and jumping time on these comfy beds!

Also, if you travel with your fur babies (I wish Brandon would agree to take Tex and Cali with us!), the beautiful boutique hotel is also pet friendly. Baby Weaver was having a ball with some of the pups we ran into in the elevator and lobby!

Since the hotel is in downtown Tulsa, it is the perfect location considering it was only a short drive to most of the popular sites I’ll list later on in this post. The hotel also has various meeting rooms, a fitness center and a complimentary shuttle service.

If you are looking for a first class hotel in Tulsa, I highly recommend the Ambassador Hotel!

What To See In Tulsa:

Center of the Universe | We parked and walked up to the “Center of the Universe” to find we passed it up, haha! Surprisingly there were no signs or anything saying “you are here” so just note that once you park, you have to walk a short distance to the actual spot. There are no signs so just keep your eyes open 🙂

The Cave House

Tulsa Zoo | A must do when you have your little ones

Discovery Lab | This was such a fun space and perfect for an afternoon when it was pouring outside. We were able to let baby Weaver run around and play with all the cool things. It’s sort of like a small scale children’s museum.

Oldest House In Tulsa

Philbrook Museum of Art

The Gathering Place | Holy Smokes!! You guys, this is a definite must see! One of my work colleagues who used to lived in Oklahoma told me that this place had just opened and I am soooo happy we were able to go. I will link their official site here. Even if you have just a few hours in Tulsa this should be the one place you go! This riverfront park was way more than we thought it was going to be!

Where To Eat In Tulsa:

Society on Cherry Street | OMG, best burgers and truffle fries!

The Tavern

Jupiter

The Chalkboard | This is conveniently located in the Ambassador Hotel

Where To Grab A Coffee & A Snack:

Foolish Coffee

The Phoenix

Coffee House on Cherry Street

Topeca Coffee

Where To Shop In Tulsa:

I know you aren’t going to believe this but I only stopped to shop in one area of Tulsa. Utica Square. We were so busy trying to see all the local things in 2.5 days that we really didn’t have time to shop much!

Lastly, this isn’t technically a Tulsa, Oklahoma highlight but I do want to mention our new stroller that we took on this trip which made traveling a lot easier. I know the description says it’s super lightweight but no joke when we were at the airport I kept looking inside the stroller to make sure baby Weaver was there! It was so light I felt like I wasn’t pushing anyone LOL!  This new jet stroller by Silver Cross was made for jet setting kids in mind! It folds to a compact size so small that you can even bring it onto the plane and stick in the overhead bin.

I hope you enjoyed this Tulsa round up. Please let me know if you have any other questions!

What To Do And Where To Eat In Atlanta

Happy Friday friends! I wanted to recap our recent anniversary trip to Atlanta. Also, so many of you sweet locals sent over your recommendations so even if we weren’t able to make it there, I am listing them below for those of you who are planning an upcoming trip to Atlanta!

So the majority of the pictures we took (like all 500 of them) show baby Weaver’s face and since I can’t share him with you guys yet I don’t have too many photos to share with you today LOL but I promise the recommendations of what to do and where to go will make up for it!

what-to-do-in-atlanta

Where to Shop:

Ponce City Market– Filled with national retailers and also local shops. The food hall has a wide variety of eats too! Skyline Park is located atop the Ponce City Market. It’s like a carnival style vibe with a beer garden and pretty views!

Phipps Plaza

Lenox Square

ponce-market

Where to Eat:

Varsity – We didn’t make it there but I have been told that the hot dogs and burgers are Ah-mazing! You know this girl likes a good burger!

Botiwalla – delicious indian food.

JCT Kitchen – Upscale Southern Food

Bistro Niko –  French cuisine.

Antico – famous for their pizza in Atlanta (so dang good and you can walk across the street to Caffe Antico for gelato!)

Speaking of sweets here are some recommendations for ice cream and dessert:

Ice Cream at Jeni’s and chocolate croissants at The Little Tart.

the-little-tart-bakery-atlanta

Breakfast and Brunch Recommendations:

West Egg Cafe

Canvas Café & Bakery

Flying Biscuit

What to See:

Georgia Aquarium – I had no idea but apparently this is the #1 aquarium in the US

World of Coke– So cool to see the evolution of the brand. I love that you can taste 100 flavors from all over the world but of course I just kept getting refills of the one that taste like pink starburst! Baby had his first sip of Coke but he’s not about that life, lol.

CNN Studio Tour– This sounded like a fun thing to do and it’s included in the city pass but I want to forewarn you. The tour consists of 8 flights of stairs and no elevator option so we opted out. Carrying a 25 pound human down 8 flights of stairs with 50 other people just wasn’t on the agenda that day!

SkyView Ferris Wheel– right in the center of downtown and great views, duh.

Zoo Atlanta– I was way more excited to see the panda and gorillas than baby was, haha! But it was so fun taking him to the zoo for the first time. They have twin pandas there so of course we left with a panda stuffed toy 🙂

*all of the attractions above are included in the city pass. I would recommend purchasing one if you plan on visiting the majority of these spots.

Jimmy Carter Library

Martin Luther King Museum

Atlanta Belt Line- We didn’t get to go but many of you said it was a fun spot to rent a bike and ride on a pretty day!

Where We Stayed:

Stay Alfred at The Office – You guys, Brandon booked this (per usual) and it was the most stunning place and the views were phenomenal. All of the walls were covered in windows and I was just like #natuallightinggoals. I highly recommend this spot if you are traveling to Atlanta soon! So chic and contemporary so it had a lot of space for baby to crawl around. It is one of those properties that people actually live in and then they reserve some units for hotel stays.

It was such a great first anniversary trip with baby Weaver. I can’t wait for more to come! I hope you guys enjoyed today’s post.

The Style Lynn Life Travels: New Zealand- 10 Things To Do On The North Island

Happy weekend friends! I apologize that I totally failed at getting this post up yesterday. It was cray!

Anywho, we got back from New Zealand 2 weeks ago and I still think about it everyday! We had such a wonderful time and seriously the north island was more beautiful than I even expected it would be! We took a direct flight from Houston to Auckland and spent 2 days in Auckland before we made our drive down to Lake Taupo where we stayed the remainder of the time. There is so much to do on the north island and I’ve been getting a lot of questions from you guys so I wanted to put together a list of my top ten recommendations on where to go and also some other fun facts that I learned while I was there!

Ca’Momi Osteria- Napa Valley

With so many delicious restaurants in Napa Valley, narrowing down all the places you want to eat in a 48 hour period is a very hard thing to accomplish. So what does a girl do? Scour instagram for the best food and cocktail photos located in Napa Valley of course! 🙂  That’s how I came across Ca’Momi. I was drooling over the pizza and cocktail photos, but I had no idea it was going to be even better in real life!

If you are looking for authentic Italian cuisine while in Napa I highly recommend this place! Not only is the food delicious but the service was excellent and well…wine. 🙂
