This is an older area that has been restored quite a bit in the last 10 years or so. There are a lot of bars and restaurants, and during warmer months, some good places to have a meal and a beer outside on a patio.

You'll have a wide variety for your dinner choices and of drinking establishments. Many interesting shops, movie theaters and hotel are in the area too. Some of the busiest times that I've seen are: Wednesdays when the theater has their discounted movie prices and of course the weekends. In the spring, summer and fall months there's the farm and art... More

Old town was recommended to us by our hotel as a place to walk to for lunch and shopping. We went on a Saturday during the day and visited a fee of the shops and walked into an art gallery. I assume that it gets much busier during the weekend evenings as there were quite a few bars. The Warren... More

There were a few nice shops and we found a very good place to eat. A couple were closed (noon on a Tuesday)? It was a good place to stop and get out of the car for awhile while passing through. For me, it would not be a destination location, but nice if you are in the area. Would I... More

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!
