From “Cow Town” to “Air Capital of the World.”

Located along the Arkansas River in south-central Kansas, Wichita is the largest city in the state. Wichita was originally founded as a trading post along the Chisholm Trail in the late 19th century. The city was also known as a popular area for cattle drives which gave the town its nickname, “Cowtown.” In more recent years the city has acquired the nickname, “The Air Capital of the World,” due to its status as a hub for aircraft production.

If you like the outdoors, you can spend the day at the Sedwick County Zoo or stop into Botanica: The Wichita Gardens. If you want to learn more about the history of the area, or are looking to have a day of culture, you can pay a visit to the Old Cowtown Museum, the Museum of World Treasures, the Kansas Aviation Museum, or the Wichita Art Museum. For sightseeing be sure to stop by the Veteran’s Memorial Park or Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception.

I have to give this a 5 star as it's the hometown. I grew up here and know the city pretty well like the back of my hand (or did at least until I moved to Europe 6 years ago). There are lots of hidden treasures in Wichita and typically Wichitans are apologetic of their city. It's a great place to raise a family. Also, it's actually a great place to visit if you're looking for a relaxed atmosphere and a taste of what the "real" America looks like (rather than a touristy trip filled with New York City and Disney World).
