Wichita Holidays

With its fabled cowtown past, powerful American Indian history and top quality museums, the biggest city in Kansas is a place of discovery. Fancy seeing what life was like here when the streets were full of cowboys? Then stop by Old Cowtown Museum. Want to know more about the USA's native tribes? Then head to the Mid-America All-Indian Center & Museum. In need of an art fix? Then explore the riches of the superb Wichita Art Museum.

This is the very heart of America, and at the Great Plains Nature Center you can get a feel for the Midwest's stunning natural landscapes as you wander among prairies, wetlands, ponds and woodlands. Then head to the spot where a haunting 44 ft-high sculpture of an Indian Chief stands guard over the river, to soak up the real spirit of the place. Known as the Keeper of the Plains, this iconic symbol of the city is lit up by fire pits at night, making for a spectacular sight.

There's plenty of places you can get out and about on Wichita holidays, and spending some time in the city's 100 plus parks is a must. Sedgwick Park is a favourite, and with its fishing lakes, trails, zoo and playgrounds makes for the perfect family friendly destination. Or make a beeline for beautiful Botanica, where you can stroll among 25 themed gardens including an enclosure teeming with butterflies and a special children's garden.

Back on the culture trail and there's yet more museums to enjoy, like the Kansas Aviation Museum and the stunning Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Allan Lambe House Museum - as well as top music and theatre at Wichita's theatres and concert venues. With so many options, the only problem you'll have is trying to fit everything in.

Old Cowtown

Get a feel for how life was lived in 1870s Wichita at this living history museum where cowboys trot past on their horses and gun fights break out among the costumed residents. Cowtown recreates the long ago scene when Wichita was a cattletown along the Chisholm Trail, and you can try a wagon ride, watch the swing of the blacksmith's hammer, and visit the humble home of the town's founder.

Sedgwick County Zoo

The USA's seventh-largest zoo is the top outdoor attraction in the whole of Kansas. It puts a big emphasis on conservation and its breeding programme for endangered species, and is home to over 3000 animals of all shapes and sizes - including lions, tigers, elephants, rhinos, gorillas and giraffes. There's a chance to feed and interact with the animals too.

Festival Time

There's a packed calendar on Wichita holidays, with a slew of festivals to choose from. Riverfest sees nine days of live music and fun along the river in late May and early June; The American Indian Festival is in July; the Midwest Beerfest and Wingfest, with handcrafted brews and a chicken wings cook-off, is in September; and so are the aerobatics displays of the Wichita Flight Festival.

Museum of World Treasures

Stuffed full of very kind of artefact you could possibly think of, you never know what you're going to find amongst this museum's eclectic horde. Just some of the items on display are: Abraham Lincoln's walking stick; a complete T-Rex; props from the Wizard of Oz; Marilyn Monroe memorabilia; and several Egyptian mummies.

Good Times

Once the sun goes down, head to Old Town, where the 19th-century brick warehouses of the city's former manufacturing district have been transformed into an array of happening bars, nightclubs, shops, galleries and restaurants. A good time is guaranteed for all.
