Containing a variety of attractions and opportunities, tourists near and far continue to visit Wichita. Although not the largest or flashiest city in the county, it remains a beautiful destination with a small-town feel and plenty to see and do.
The largest city in the State of Kansas, Wichita is the county seat of Sedgwick County, located in the south of the state. The city lies near the western edge of the Flint Hill lowland region of the Great Plains.
Wichita has come a long way from its beginnings as a trading post on the Chisholm Trail in the mid 19th century. Now a thriving metropolis known as the Air Capital of the World, it’s not cattle being driven to ‘Cowtown’ anymore, but people.
It’s a very active city with countless things to do outside. Bike paths run for hundreds of miles throughout the city, many laid out along scenic routes and a considerable stretch running along the Big Arkansas River.
