Many choices for dining. Very nice historic area which has been revamped, would probably be awesome in the warmer months.

I love going to Old Town for dinner and a movie and often a little shopping at the unique stores. The atmosphere is different than anywhere else in town. There has been an elevated crime rate in certain areas of Old Town but the police are making a good presence and crime seems primarily restricted to very late night. I... More

We really enjoyed walking around and reading the railroad history of Wichita. We spent so much time just reading and looking that it became to late to go tour the museum. The man who had the vision to turn what was no longer used into the lofts, shops, restaurants, bars and hotel that are now there was a genius. I'm... More

Old Town Wichita is an interesting area with restaurants, shops, museums, theaters, shops and businesses. This area is quiet during the day but becomes lively at night especially on weekends. Museums and shops close around 5 but bars and restaurants are open at night. Fun for a few hours or a day visit.

Wichita did a smart thing. They turned old warehouses adjacent to Union Station into restaurants, shops, bars, and lofts. It makes life there more bearable as it is lively and there are actually pedestrians all over the area. Yea!

The pictures posted here are from Cowtown, which is not the same as Old Town. Old Town is an old industrial area converted to some really cool restaurants, shops and bars. COW TOWN is an old remake of cowboy days where they have people dressed up like the old west and have gun fight shows, old saloon, etc. Two completely... More

We went down to the old brick area in downtown Wichita, KS and it was a lot nicer than we expected. We went to a few breweries down there and had a great time. It was clean, and nice looking. I recommend stopping by if it is on your way.

All depends on why you go, when you go and what you are looking for. Several places for different age group, desires, tastes. etc. Great place for food, a drink, and socializing. Several businesses are well done and well run. Late late night..... much more designed for the younger age groups and the things that go along with that.

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.
