“Big Bob's in Cowtown”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2011

Our grandsons love the cowboys, horses, and the thrills of the wild west. Even though mother is against guns, grandpa still likes taking the grandkids to see where it began in this part of the country

“Saturday night felt like I was in a different city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2011

I liked the fact that there were a lot of people walking around the area, different vendors, hot dogs & taco stands. There is something for families, singles, young, old.

The only thing I did not like, was, that I didn't find out about it until this summer, I have been linving in the area for more than a decade!

“OK in the Day, Stay Away at Night”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2011

Used to be the cool "in" place for nightlife and weekends, but is becoming a dive. Last time i was there in the evening, saw a drunk gal passed out, face-down on the sidewalk, showing no sign of life, and the cop on duty walked past her like it was nothing new. Still OK during daylight hours, and the Museum of World Treasures, in the middle of Old Town is a MUST SEE. But forget the night life there. It's starting to turn creepy.

“Bars, bars and more bars”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2011

If you like bars and drunk people then this is the place. Nothing really for families at all

“Great variety of food, shopping, and entertainment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 November 2010

If it is a weekend night and you find yourself stuck in Wichita, this is the place to be. So many different kinds of restaurants and bars in a small area that offer something for everyone. From sports bars to wine bars to dance clubs and from small diners to chain restaurants to upscale eateries the varieties is endless. My favorites are the Pumphouse, an old gas station that has been converted into a bar and club Indigo, which has a cool rooftop patio for when the weather is nice.

Also if the late night bar hopping scene isn't your thing, during the spring and summer they have a farmers market going on during the day and many different retail shops and antique stores. Not to mention one of the coolest movie theatres in all of Wichita, that serve a full menu and drinks at your seat.
