Weather

Like most of the Midwest, Kansas is prone to extreme temperatures and severe weather, depending on the season. Summers are quite hot, particularly in July and August when temperature highs reach the low 90s ... Read more
Fahrenheit (low 30s Celsius), while winters get very cold, with most of the snow falling in the northwest. Spring and early summer are much like Dorothy’s Kansas in the Wizard of Oz: the state averages 50 tornadoes every year. Other types of severe weather can hit the state as well, including thunderstorms and hail. Perhaps the best time to visit Kansas is in the autumn (September and October) when temperatures are still warm and Kansas City is alive with fall festivals.

Friendly people in any city make a visit a pleasure. That is what I came in to contact with in Wichita both at work and socially.

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).
