I am down there 4 or 5 times a month. I go to Twist, a yarn shop for all my knitting. Shelly the owner is helpful, kind and sets everyone at ease. The other customers are all so friendly. It's like walking into a room of friends you have never met before.

I went here with my teenage brother and dad. We found only two or three shops, all were women's boutiques. Everything else was a bar (my brother and I are both under the drinking age). Not good for families. The only activity to do is drink.

While downtown is not huge, nor do they have a lot of stores it is still a really cute area to visit if you're in town. They have a few cute boutique stores, lots of fun museums and a nice riverwalk area.

My husband and I love old town. There's so many possibilities from shopping to dining. It's clean and aesthetically pleasing with a variety of options from menu selections to prices for affordability. It's perfect hangout spot!

Having heard so,so reviews but never been to Wichita KS [even though its in my back yard] I was pleasantly surprised.

Not used to what the US names Old town I was first disappointed upon reaching the place. Then I found it much more animated and rich in stores, pubs and boutiques than your usual all american shopping mall. Maybe not old but charming in a way that it does make a difference.

Many good restaurants and live music venues, a natural history museum, nice hotels plus a great theater where dinner and drinks are served while you watch your digital movie. Blues parties, car shows, people watching. Generally well policed, leave 12 to 1:00am is best to avoid tipsy folks when bars start to close.

Downtown is just fine if you want to get completely trashed and deal with crime and violence. There's really nothing else downtown besides expensive drinking and food you would only eat while drunk. Crime happens downtown all the time. Someone was shot there recently and died.
