Our family will be living in Wichita for four weeks in September/early October. We have accommodation in the East part of the city, near the Lake and Country Club, I believe. We have a car, so I'd like to plan a few excursions each week for my young family. I'd also like to know about any great parks and shopping centres as I'd like to live like a local for four weeks - shop, cook, eat out occasionally, go to the park and muesum - that sort of thing. Also, I am wondering to if there will be any pumpkin patches etc, in preparation for Halloween, as we don't celebrate that in Australia and my children are quite capivated by the idea. I believe, weather wise, it will be a great time of year. I look forward to your responses.
