Live an exciting life in the hub of our city's cultural center. Be steps away from Wichita's many museums, galleries, theatre and music productions, shops, restaurants and nightspots.
Dining & Shopping
For some of Wichita's best and most tasteful boutiques and restaurants, look no further than downtown. Whether you're searching for skirt steak or a sizzling skirt, look here first.
Fitness & Recreation
Wichita is home to one of the nation's most successful YMCA organizations. The Robert D. Love Central Branch YMCA is one of eight full-service, family locations in the Wichita area.
From the YMCA to skate parks to bike and walking paths, Downtown Wichita has fitness and recreational activities to fit your lifestyle. Rather watch than participate? Take in a Wichita Thunder hockey game, visit the Kansas Sports Hall of Fame, climb aboard the Jayhawk, an International America's Cup Class yacht, donated to the City of Wichita by Bill Koch, or catch a Wingnuts baseball game at the Lawrence-Dumont Stadium just across the river.
Wichita and South Central Kansas residents enjoy a high level of expertise and healthcare choice. The city is continuously ranked high in the nation for the quality of healthcare available.
