Wichita is one of the best value destinations for 2017. The no longer quiet, small town is booming and modern. But it’s still a great place to visit if you want to see remnants of the Old West. Learn about it at the Old Cowtown Museum or explore the Museum of Ancient Treasures for a more unconventional experience. Marvel some of the best art by Plains Indian artists at the Indian Center Museum. See how the aviation industry has evolved through the years at the Kansas Aviation Museum. But history is not all there is in Wichita. There is plenty of wildlife to encounter at the zoo.
