Looking At Moving to Tulsa

Heu guys, long story short, there's a company in Tulsa and Oklahoma City that offers really good benefits and from what I gather by cost of living, the pay isn't that bad either for a single person.

My question is, I am trying to come out there sometime in November to check it out but in the meantime I am trying to gather opinions from those that live there as far as weather, cost of living, overall like or dislike of certain things.
What are some good areas to look into renting a place or buying a place?

I would be moving from San Diego, CA btw.

well nothing will compare to San Diego as far as culture, things to do, landscape, etc. Tulsa and Oklahoma City are the only ones that will come even close to the BIG city feel. I don't know enough about Tulsa to say, but it is a nice area from what I know and hear.

OKC surprisingly has a large tuner scene that meets every saturday night and it seems like every weekend is wild and crazy street racing-wise if you want it to be. Norman is an awesome college town and 20 minutes to downtown OKC depending on where in Norman you live. Edmond and Yukon are nice suburbs. Moore is a nice little bedroom community right between Norman and OKC on the south side. If you have money at all there are some sweet ass condos' being built right downtown by "Bricktown" on the east side of the city.

Man, Oklahoma is not Cali and never will be....BUT there are good things about it, that's for sure - cost of living, cost of houses, college football and NBA, and it's an absolutely GREAT place to raise a kid that you don't want living too far out in the county and yet not grow up too fast, either. Ease of life, also. I spend a lot of time right by NYC flying into Newark airport and then staying right there on the NY/NJ boarder for my job, and of course the area is incredible, NYC is incredible, etc. BUT I absolutely cannot deal with being around SOOOOOOOOO many people - I mean absolutely everywhere you go there are a ton of cars and a ton of people everywhere you look. you are w/in 50 miles of like 10 million people it is so dense. In Norman, it's a perfect city-country mix and not near as many people. OKC metro has MAYBE 1 million at the very most. Norman is about 100,000 and OKC proper is only 750K at most.
Tulsa would be cool I'm sure but really can't help too much. but any of the areas I mentioned above would be at least looking into. If you come out here to visit or look around - PM me and I'll break off my cell # and we can roll on the saturday night meet supercharged and I'll show you around the metro.
