We went to a restaurant on douglas street which is safe and left before dark. It is not safe after the sun goes down

This summer we visited Greenfield Village in Detroit Michigan. This place may be smaller but to me it was much better. This is a great place for family and friends.

Not bad in the day time, but at night the crazy's come out. Need to be packing heat if you go down here after dark. Booze and guns don't mix well, so stay clear when the bars let out.

Old town has everything, museums, restaurants, Warren theater (has a food service theater), fresh food market on Saturday, music and more. Also many other activities depending on when you are there. My husband and I love to go there and just walk around, stop for a drink at one of the establishments, dine at our favorites: Sabors, River City Brewery,... More

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.

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.

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
