Product Description:
Situated in the heart of the Great Plains, Wichita has been a city of energy and change. The Great Depression and World War II brought both challenges and opportunities. During the postwar years, commercial and business activities downtown thrived, while shopping malls and drive-ins appeared in new suburbs. Meanwhile, African Americans, countercultural figures, and other groups struggled to reshape local affairs. Urban renewal transformed whole sections of the city, while redevelopment brought new life into older structures. Events such as Riverfest and a host of museums have improved the quality of life. A strong entrepreneurial tradition has remained, and populations from Asia and Latin America have brought new perspectives. Aviation has remained the economy’s heart, although health care, higher education, and other ventures have made their mark as well. Through it all, the rhythms of everyday life have continued, creating a vibrant, complex community facing the dawn of the 21st century.

Product Description:
Wichita, Kansas, was founded in 1870 as a small frontier cow town. By 1900, after having gone through one of the most remarkable real estate boom-and-bust cycles in US history, it had become the largest city in the state and a regional hub of commerce. Wichita flourished between 1900 and 1940, and its population quadrupled as it became a world leader in aircraft production. Picture postcards were introduced just as Wichita entered this latter phase of development, and the colorful new form of communication amply documented Wichitas history during those years.

Product Description:
Early Wichita earned a wicked reputation from newspapers across Kansas thanks to a bevy of madams and murderers, bootleggers and bank robbers, con men and crooked cops. Gambler and saloonkeeper "Rowdy Joe" Lowe was the toast of the town before shooting down his rival, "Red" Beard, and skipping town. Robber and cop killer "Clever Eddie" Adams spread a wave of terror until the police evened the score. Dixie Lee ran the city's classiest brothel with little interference from authorities. Notorious quack "Professor" H. Samuels made a fortune selling worthless eye drops. And county attorney Willard Boone was chased out of town when he was caught with his hand in the bootlegger's cookie jar. Local author Joe Stumpe tells the real stories of the city's best-known and least-known criminals and misfits.

Wichita Travel Guide (Unanchor) - Wichita From Cowtown to Air Capital in 2 Days
 
Product Description:
Wichita: From Cowtown to Air Capital in 2 Days

This guide was designed to help visitors explore both Wichita's unusual past and the modern city it has become. There is so much to do in Wichita, including over 33 museums, 28 art galleries, 22 attractions, 22 live theaters, 17 festivals, and 8 shopping districts. It can be very difficult for visitors to decide what to see. This guide will take you to some of Wichitans favorite activities and restaurants.

I would recommend that due to the distances involved persons with either their own car or a rental would find this itinerary useful.

Wichita is the largest city in Kansas and you will find all the choices here that you would find in any large sized city. Most of the attractions listed here in the itinerary are family friendly. You may want to arrange for a sitter or substitute some other activity for the night as neither the Old Town district or the casino is family friendly. Don't worry though you will find many movie theaters and other family oriented activities available. We even have roller skating and ice skating available. If you do chose the movies check out the Warren group. They are all art deco and offer many fun choices such as 3-D and Imax. There's even one that specializes in second run movies at a very low price.

You will find a lot of interesting and off the beaten track advice in this itinerary. It starts with a visit to the Old Cowtown museum. This is an interactive museum that brings the old and often lawless days of early Wichita to life. It will help you better understand the pioneer heritage of Wichita. You will get a chance to see for yourself how the early days of aviation helped us build the city we became. You will get to experience one of our earliest fast food restaurants. The Nu-Way was up and running long before the term fast food was coined. You will also find out which unique stores to visit in both the Delano district and in the Old Town district.

Finally when it's all over, you'll be invited to relax and have some fun at the casino. We are a very unique city and many people under estimate us because they believe that Kansas is only farmland. Come see how different the truth is and enjoy the friendly atmosphere of a one of a kind city.
