Old Time Kansas...

This is a nostalgic part of Wichita and it's worth a look. Family time and lots for the kids to see. A brief look into the past.

We found out that we will want to go back and walk around, as time didn't allow us to spend enough time. On Douglas Street there are amazing sculptures of people, strategically placed, throughout that... More

Was a nice place to just take a walk and see the old buildings of Wichita, and see how they are repurposing them to bring the old town back to life.
