One-Day Wichita Itinerary
9 a.m. Donut Whole
This eclectic donut shop has quickly climbed the ranks into Wichita's "must try" list. Try quirky creations like the King Midas (vanilla, salted peanuts and Lyle's Golden Syrup) or the Sunshine Citrus Crunch (topped with citrus glaze and fruity cereal). Grab a locally roasted coffee variety to go, and start your day in the city.
10 a.m. Exploration Place
As Kansas' premier science center, you'll explore the wonders of the world while overlooking the Arkansas River. With permanent exhibits like "Exploring Flight & Design," your little one will practice in simulators and learn why Wichita is called the Air Capital of the World for its aviation dominance. See a show in the largest dome theater in the state.
Noon Bradley Fair lunch
With many restaurants to choose from, you'll find something delicious for lunch at Bradley Fair. Wood-fired pizzas at Il Vicino, seafood flown in daily to Newport Grill and frozen margaritas from On The Border all have your name on them, but save room for a chocolate truffle at Cocoa Dolce Artisan Chocolates.
1 p.m. Bradley Fair shopping
After a wonderful meal, enjoy the area's nearly 50 stores. Guys can be at home at the outdoors shop Eddie Bauer. Ann Taylor provides timeless style and individuality for the ladies. Or skip the shopping altogether, and go straight to Sveta's Skin & Body Therapy for an investment in your personal restoration.
2:30 p.m. Old Cowtown Museum
Be immersed in the 1870s and experience Wichita as a Wild West settler. Try a wagon ride, enjoy an ice-cold sarsaparilla but be prepared to duck in the doorway because you never know when a gunfight might break out.
6 p.m. Dinner and a show
If you want to see where Broadway stars are born, grab a bite to eat at Public at the Brickyard and then see a Music Theatre of Wichita performance. Wichita's vibrant arts scene will be sure to impress.
