Great area full of food, drinks, art & entertainment. Walking distance to Intrust Bank Arena, so fun to start the party here before a concert.....and finish it after!

Wichita is a fantastic city to visit , and the artwork all along Douglas street and with all the beautiful architecture of the buildings makes Wichita a beautiful city to walk around. Hardly any traffic, or crowds, it's so easy to walk around and take photos the history here is well worth a visit. In Douglas Street there are some... More

This is a pretty eclectic area, but we really like the Warren Theater, especially on the $5 Wednesdays. It's kind of nice, being empty nesters, to go to a show and not have kids screaming and talking during the movie. Convenient parking in the garage, pretty decent food and servers that bring it right to your theater seat!

Lots of bars and dives. In the summer there are lots of places with live music and other venues. The streets are paved with brick, really nostalgic look and feel. Great place to take out of town visitors. Also a club scene so if ya feel like cutting up a rug. Plenty of places to eat. There's also a movie... More

When we go to Old town it's usually to dance in front of the Warren in the square and once in front of the arts and farmers market. Afterward we grab a bite to eat at any of the various places around there.

There seems to actually be a New Town and an Old Town separated by an arch and a roadway. New Town was a little more inhabited; clean and pretty. There are restaurants, a couple of shops, a movie theatre, and a big square in the middle of it all with benches, grass, and some interesting architecture. Old Town was a... More

Nice area to walk around. Reminded us of the Old Market area in Omaha, NE, although much smaller. More places to eat than shop. Wish we would have had time to take in the museum. Allow 1-2 hours to walk through, if shopping heavily, eating, or doing the museum allow more.

Cute area. The area is small. There are a number of places to eat and drink. There is a free public parking lot. And there appeared to be a lot of open parking on the street around 6 pm on a Saturday and around 7 pm on a Friday.

This is a nostalgic part of Wichita and it's worth a look. Family time and lots for the kids to see. A brief look into the past.
