Visit Wichita - Weekend Road Trip
Wichita is the largest city in the state of Kansas and the 48th-largest city in the United States. The estimated population of the Wichita metropolitan area is approximately 650,000. The city began as a trading post on the Chisholm Trail in the 1860s, and was incorporated in 1870. It subsequently became a key destination for cattle drives traveling north from Texas to access railroads, earning it the nickname Cowtown. In the 1920s and 1930s, businessmen and aeronautical engineers established a number of successful aircraft manufacturing companies in Wichita. Lloyd Stearman, Walter Beech, and Clyde Cessna established the Travel Air Manufacturing Company in Wichita in January 26, 1925. The city transformed into a hub of U.S. aircraft production and became known as The Air Capital of the World. Beechcraft, Cessna, (both now part of Textron Aviation) and other firms including Learjet, Airbus and Spirit AeroSystems continue to operate design and manufacturing facilities in Wichita today, and the city remains a major center of the U.S. aircraft industry.
We couldn't see everything in Wichita in 3 days, but we tried. We wanted to hit several outdoor spaces, so we hiked in 4 parks, Swanson Park, Air Capital Memorial Park, Pawnee Prairie Park, and the Great Plains Nature Center. We also got a chance to try some great restaurants and brew pubs while we were in town and attend Midwest Winefest. Each of those locations will be reviewed in other videos, so please stay tuned. We also got the opportunity to kayak in the Arkansas River. This was a new experience for us and was really fun. Look for this activity to be available to the public in Summer of 2019. I feature of the city is the Keeper of the Plains monument. It is a great space to be in and you can really feel the energy of the city there. Be sure to be there around 9pm for the lighting of the fire pots. We want to thank visitwichita.com for hosting us in Wichita.

Tulsa in Oklahoma, Route 66 Hotel, Motel , art deco architecture, tourism,
hotels,Tulsa /ˈtʌlsə/ is the second-largest city in the state of Oklahoma and 47th-most populous city in the United States. As of July 2015, the population was 403,505, an increase of 11,599 over that reported in the 2010 Census. It is the principal municipality of the Tulsa Metropolitan Area, a region with 981,005 residents in the MSA and 1,151,172 in the CSA. The city serves as the county seat of Tulsa County, the most densely populated county in Oklahoma, with urban development extending into Osage, Rogers, and Wagoner counties.
Tulsa was settled between 1828 and 1836 by the Lochapoka Band of Creek Native American tribe. For most of the 20th century, the city held the nickname Oil Capital of the World and played a major role as one of the most important hubs for the American oil industry.
Historically, a robust energy sector fueled Tulsa's economy; however, today the city has diversified and leading sectors include finance, aviation, telecommunications and technology.. Two institutions of higher education within the city have sports teams at the NCAA Division I level, Oral Roberts University and the University of Tulsa.
It is situated on the Arkansas River between the Osage Hills and the foothills of the Ozark Mountains in northeast Oklahoma, a region of the state known as Green Country. Considered the cultural and arts center of Oklahoma, Tulsa houses two world-renowned art museums, full-time professional opera and ballet companies, and one of the nation's largest concentrations of art deco architecture. The city has been called one of America's most livable large cities by Partners for Livable Communities, Forbes, and Relocate America. FDi Magazine in 2009 ranked the city no. 8 in the U.S. for cities of the future. In 2012, Tulsa was ranked among the top 50 best cities in the United States by BusinessWeek. People from Tulsa are called Tulsans.
