Douglas Ave stretches across Wichita running east to west. In the downtown area, it was once where young baby boomers went to "drag Douglas" and hangout. Today there's no dragging. Now everyone goes to enjoy and hang out at many of the businesses, restaurants and entertainment areas on that avene. Just on the west side of the river you have... More

The Monarch Grill on one end, parks, Downtown, antiques, Old Town, night life, shops, gas, walk the river, City History, etc. My suggestion : get familiar with this street and spin-off from there. Take your time and have fun.

Douglas Avenue is one the the main streets in downtown Wichita, Kansas. Crossing the "Wheat" bridge over the Arkansas River you soon start seeing the street sculptures on both sides of Douglas Ave. They are whimsical, sweet and very friendly for children as well as adults, and well worth experiencing. Children love finding all the animals. The sculptures are on... More

We walked east from the Drury Inn Hotel to Bricktown during the day. There are numerous outdoor bronze sculptures, historic buildings [including the Drury], shops, and places to eat.

Douglas Avenue runs through various neighborhoods or Wichita as well as downtown. Don't miss the Delano District, Old Town and the emerging arts area on the eastside. If you are there in the morning and hungry stop at The Donut Whole (there is a big rooster on top of the building).

From the Delano district (around Seneca at the west end) up through Oliver (at the end) there's lots to see and do. The Delano district was part of the Chisholm Trail and was known in the late 1800's as a place of bawdy women and lonesome cowboys. Today it houses a collection of eateries and shops to browse. It has... More
