Three Perfect Days in Wichita Wrap Up

After the series began running, The Wichita Eagle published a followup article about the Boston Globe's writer who has fallen in love with Wichita.

Gypsum Hills of Kansas
There are many unique and wonderful things to do and places to visit than I could mention in just three days:
  • Old Mill Tasty Shoppe
  • Visit Greensburg
  • Visit the Gyp Hills
  • Visit one of the many aircraft factories and see how airplanes are made
  • Enjoy a meal at Yia Yia's
  • Symphony in the Flint Hills ("magical")
  • Music Theatre of Wichita, where tomorrow's Broadway stars - literally - get their start
  • Dwight Eisenhower's Museum and Library in his boyhood home of Abilene
  • Prairie Rose Wranglers and Chuck Wagon, authentic western music, Benton; Cowtown, a live museum of Wichita's cowboy heritage [late additions]
We are hosting the High Plains weather conference in August and I will have some additional suggestions for those visiting at that time. Hope you will come and see us!

    For the wife and I, Wichita is our favorite quick getaway destination from OKC for all of the places you've mentioned and many more. One of our favorite stops not mentioned however, is the Karg Art Glass Gallery in Kechi. You can see glass blowing demonstrations and get some really great deals on beautiful blown glass artwork. Well worth the trip (and right by the UP line if taking K-96)...

  2. Good point, thanks for the comment!
