Wichita has been labeled the Air Capital of the World, due to the number of successful aircraft manufacturing companies in the area. Also, it’s certain that we have a handsome new and well improved airport. However, what those who pass through Wichita; whether it be for a quick business trip, or to endure a layover, miss is the hidden beauty that Wichita possesses far beyond the tarmac.
From East to West, in the middle and as far as Hutchinson, there are several beautiful neighborhoods that seem to awaken in the crisp autumn air and remind us just how beautiful our city truly is!
