The Route 66 Harmonica Club has the pleasure and the privilege of hosting our fourth SPAH convention in 2024. We are very proud of our hometown and hope you will find some time during your visit to discover some of what Tulsa and Oklahoma have to offer.

If golf is your game, you can play a round at one of several public courses. And, if you prefer to play after dark, you can visit the par three course at LaFortune Park. If you like to fish, you can visit one of four lakes within an hour of Tulsa. The Tulsa Zoo and Oxley Nature Center are fifteen minutes from downtown as is the Turkey Mountain Urban Wilderness. You can also walk among Sharks and pet the Stingrays at the Oklahoma Aquarium in Jenks. The Gathering Place, is a world-class urban park given to the city by The George Kaiser Family Foundation. Requiring five years to build, the 140-acre park includes indoor and outdoor areas for children to play and learn; a lagoon with boat rentals; a beer garden; sports courts; a skate park; and more. You can rent one of many bikes or scooters available along the curbs of the downtown streets and be at the park in less than 15 minutes. Or, if running is your routine, you can get there by including the River Parks trail in your route. If you visited in 2022 you may remember the Woody Guthrie Center, The Bob Dylan Center, Cain’s Ballroom (Home of Bob Wills Texas Playboys), Greenwood Rising (A museum exploring the1921 Race Massacre that wiped out a thriving black community on the north side of downtown), and the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame. The Church Studio (Home to Leon Russell’s Shelter Records) offers tours as well.

New this year on Wednesday morning, we will be offering a special “Meet and Greet” opportunity for those registered for the Will Rogers Museum Tour and for anyone who would like to learn more about sight-seeing opportunities near the hotel, many within comfortable walking distance. Complimentary snacks and beverages will be available at the meeting. For those going on the Thursday tour to the Will Rogers Museum in Claremore, Oklahoma located just forty minutes from downtown Tulsa, we will review details for the trip.
Additional information and registration information for the Tour and other opportunities, will be posted here (Upcoming Convention) shortly.

As always you may visit us at the Route 66 Harmonica Club Table if you have any questions during your visit to Tulsa. Welcome back!

We are pleased to return to the Hyatt Regency Tulsa in 2024. It is located in the heart of downtown Tulsa’s vibrant business, entertainment, and cultural districts and overlooks the scenic gardens of the Williams Center Complex.
