Had a great time in Old Town when I visited a while back. There's a ton of nice restaurants around the edge of the main square which offer outdoor seating. The historic movie theatre is also a great place to check out. The city is extremely clean and the people are very nice. Definitely the place to be in Wichita.

This place could be so much better. Wish the city of Wichita would give some incentive for more places to develop this area rather than subsidizing worthless places like Gander Mountain. Although there are many new restaurants and shops popping up and the future plans for development. Hopefully someday this place can be like brick town in Oklahoma City or... More

I like walking around historic old towns. This part of town is only three blocks wide and a half-mile around, but it's nicely refurbished. There's plenty of good restaurants for all ages and tastes, including a Korean and a Japanese restaurant. Most of the red-brick buildings were built early in the 20th century. Plenty of specialty shops, including a movie... More

Old Town is fun at certain times and for certain crowds. The shops, restaurants and music are fun during the day, but it is certainly no place for children and families at night. There are bars and dance clubs, but it gets pretty shady at night. We've been in a facility more than once and heard gun shots outside, and... More

I had a great time in cow town some years ago and enjoyed every minute of it. The were having two paintings for prizes and I won one and gave it to a little girl that was added in the foreground. The artist said it may be worth a lot of money. I said yes probably after you and me... More

This area of the City of Wichita is a good place to visit good restaurants, small shops, and learn about the beginnings of the development of the city. Highly recommend.

It is a great place for everyone during the day light hours and into early evening, but later at night and especially weekend nights, the crowd is very much under 30. I am not saying one is bad or good, but be aware it is very different. There are a few shops and lots of places for food and beverages... More
