The biggest town in Kansas

I'm so glad I live in Wichita rather than on a farm or some small town. Although Wichita didn't have much to offer about 20 years back, this town has been growing & improving since then. Wichita has major event's each year such as the River Festival and Home & Garden Show. This town is also getting in the grove with building up downtown, commonly known as Old Town, with unique boutique type shopping, tons of nightlife & many resturants to suit your style. Wichita also offers 3 major colleges to chose from. Wichita State, Kansas Newman and Friends University, which all add there own entertainment to the Wichita Community. Wichita has grown in a massive rate since I was a child & is now home to 400,000 people

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Cost of living and products are very reasonable
  • Cons:Not a whole lot to do here
  • In a nutshell:Fun can be had if you look hard enough!

    So how about my hometown of Kansas City?!?! Can there really be gangs in Wichita? Hard to believe. Turks and Caicos is much better, right?!

    nice writeup on your home town. I drove thru Kansas last in 1967 - not what it used to be. Remember getting gas at 19 cents a gallon. I love animals - zoo sounds terrific. N>

    It's too bad that gangs have to mess up what seems to be a great little town! That museum looks great!

    The home and garden show sounded good. Guess there is not much else to do but sometimes that is a good thing. Enjoy.
