We walked around the area and watched the fountain shows at 8 and 9 p.m. The ones at 9 were better of course because it was darker so the lights really popped.. Would have liked to stay for the 10:00 show as well but didn't...More

Lots of different shops. Something for everyone. It is a place for people to relax and enjoy shopping, eating, taking care of business and conversations.

Take some time to savor this area. Interesting architecture, bronze sculptures, colorful murals. We planned our visit so we would be there on Saturday, avoiding downtown traffic on work days.

We went down there the other evening and it was really nice. Well lit paths and pretty fountains made for a lovely evening stroll for our family. We really enjoyed it and plan to make it a regular fair weather activity.

I've stayed at a hotel on the corner of Broadway and Douglas, so have enjoyed the drive down Douglas to and from a work project. There are lots of sweet things to see including sculptures and wonderful architecture. Nice drive or walk!

Douglas Ave. has really changed over the years. It was always great fun to cruise Douglas and hang out on the street corner. Now the gang bangers will shoot you, oh to return to the more innocent days of old.

This is my favorite premiere street in town. It is a main avenue east and west thru some of the grandest neighborhoods and historic areas of central Wichita. Most businesses and neighborhoods along Douglas are revitalized and booming.

Times have sure changed since we used to "drag" Douglas on Friday nights with all of our friends and see the new "rods".

If you're in Old Town Wichita then you are very close because it is the main street which leads into the area. If you need a restaurant to get a street address try "Larkspurs" which is in Old Town and on Douglas Avenue. Old... More
