Wichita Best Attractions

Don’t just visit, live it. No hotel allows you to experience Wichita like the Hotel at Old Town. Right outside our doors, the Old Town neighborhood is home to dozens of vibrant restaurants, clubs, pubs, lounges, shops and galleries. When it comes to restaurants alone, you could stay at the Hotel at Old Town for two weeks and eat at a different spot every night. Sample flavors ranging from BBQ to Latin, Japanese to Mediterranean, Italian to Mexican and, of course, good old-fashioned American burgers and steaks. All just steps away.

If you’re a fan of live music, you’ll have your choice of restaurants, bars and some of the best patios in Wichita. You can also catch some of the biggest names in music at the 15,000-seat Intrust Bank Arena, which is just five blocks away.

If you want to explore but don’t feel like walking, you can always hop on one of the trolleys. They run from Old Town to the west end of Downtown and the river — where you can hop off and visit Exploration Place or take in a Wichita Wing Nuts baseball game.

Whatever uniquely Wichita adventure you seek, our friendly staff are here to help point the way.
