Wichita: Doing things its way with heart in the heartland
It may be unusual to find a T. rex skeleton or Egyptian mummy in the middle of America’s heartland—but not in Wichita, Kansas. You can find both at the Museum of World Treasures in this warm and welcoming, if not slightly unexpected and eclectic, city. Wichita is a place that embraces the past while reaching for the future. A refreshed Old Town—listed on the National Register of Historic Places—and Cowtown Museum pay homage to the area’s humble beginnings. The city’s title as the Air Capital of the World honors its prominent role in pioneering aircraft innovation and manufacturing. Specialty coffee roasters, craft breweries, top-notch eateries and a spirited music scene all speak to the energy and enthusiasm of a city that’s not afraid to try different things and to have some fun in the process.
