Wichita Falls Travel Guide: 35 reviews and 44 photos
While I have been on I-40 heading east out of Amarillo to Oklahoma (a sparsely traveled ribbon of road in the wee hours of the morning), I have also continued southeast down US 287 in a trek that after passing through the blazing hot town of Childress, runs parallel to the Red River. The Red River serves as a large part of the Texas-Oklahoma border. At one point I saw what I think should have been the Red River, but instead looked like a dried-up river bed with Oklahoma on the other side looking a lot more verdant than the Texas trail that we were following.
Eventually, after traveling US 287 for more than 100 more miles, we arrived at the sizable city of Wichita Falls. Situated not too far south of the Oklahoma border but still too far Northwest to be considered part of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, Wichita Falls has its own urban downtown of mid-rise office buildings. We stayed in downtown Wichita Falls, I think it was at a Holidome, where we spent much of our free time enjoying the indoor pool. Apparently Wichita Falls does have actual waterfalls somewhere, we just didn’t attempt to search for them. A few years back I remember reading that Wichita Falls was voted by some magazine or organization as being the most “average” or “normal” city in America, based on the demographics of its population -- whatever that means.
