Did not expect to find this in Wichita

Was in Wichita for a conference and was surprised to find Old Town and the number of great restaurants in this area. This is a wonderful attraction for visitors coming to Wichita.

Was able to walk for hours going to shops, eating, and even going to the movies. Went back the next day to return to a few stores that were closed.

Drove here thinking we'd have several fun areas to investigate and enjoy, but were unable to locate much. We saw a few restaurants, but were expecting a lot of fun shops in which to spend our afternoon. In reality, we didn't even park our car - but drove through in search of "something" and ended-up driving off as nothing piqued... More

I hadn't ever taken my kids to Cowtown because I wasn't sure how much they would really like it. But then this year their class took a field trip there. They enjoyed it. They got to go into the old schoolhouse and someone spoke about how school used to be taught. Then they got to walk all over with a... More

For several years I have attended a conference in Old Town and will say the location is exceptional for smaller events. First the Hotel Old Town is great and right in the middle of it all. The restaurants and bars are always fun and it is nice to be within easy walking distance. The Warren Theater is a great place... More

We vend there at the farmers market quite often. It has one of the best atmospheres we have found. People are always friendly. The area is clean and well maintained. Don't know how better to explain it than it just has a pleasant "feel" about it.

We purposely chose Old Town to visit and stay in because we had a free hotel night expiring and wanted to try somewhere new. There really weren't as many stores or restaurants as we hoped for. The main activity seemed to be near the Warren Movie Theater, and the shops on that block. We also hit the Pumphouse and River... More

I love to walk around Old Town. There are plenty of restaurants and trendy shopping opportunities. Plenty of attractions packed into a small area, neat area to spend the afternoon.

We had a wonderful time exploring Old Town and wandering around the streets, cobblestone roads and lots of outdoor dining option made for a perfect way to pend a weekend

We stayed at the Hotel in Oldtown. There were plenty of places to eat of a wide variety from bars, sports bars, to more upscale bistros. There is also a wonderful museum located there which is almost a mini Smithsonian!
