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.

You can always catch a movie, eat a nice meal while you watch it, at the warren theater. Or have dinner at old Chicago. Or maybe you are in the mood for some Gelato, you can get it in Old town. We love it!

Did a great job integrating this area back into a vibrant DT area. Shopping, museums, movie theater, and all kinds of eating and drinking available. Plus a vibrant living space area.

Didn't realize that Wichita had such deep history. Nicely restored from what we were able to see. Fairly big area.

We had a fairly unmemorable lunch in Old Town. The area was experiencing some major criminal activity while we were there and that made us feel a little uncomfortable about exploring Old Town. So we ate and drove around the area. It's okay but nothing too exciting.

We were able to look at the menus of over a dozen restaraunts in a small area and able to find exactly what we wanted. The shopping selection was ok but many of the places had closed by 5pm.

Several great restaurants depending upon the type of food that you want.In my opinion the Lark Spur is best for a nice dinner. Hero's sports bar for burgers,nachos, etc River City Brewery for a great home brew with some fish and chips. In the summer Old Town has free live music every Friday; bring a lawn chair. Many clubs to... More
