W for A-Z Challenge

W-Wichita, Ks.




Known as the Air Capital of the World
Home to Cessna, Beech craft and Learjet to name a few.

I would definitely visit this place....the Allen Lambe House built by
Frank Lloyd Wright
It is now a art museum but was originally built to suit a family in the traditional Wright style, incorporating the appreciation of the outside from the inside.
 See how it surrounds the outside.
 
And while here I would also want to spend the night at the Historic Castle Inn Riverside
Just breathtaking!
 
and maybe spend the day at Clifton Square going through all the little shops

 
 
and guess who lived here for a short time?Wyatt Earp.
 
 
and why not it's such a pretty place....
 
Down town view from the west bank of the Arkansas River
 
"The Keeper of the Plains" statue stands 44 foot tall and honors the local tribes of the past.
 
Happy Trails

It is pretty. I should have visited when I lived in Nebraska.

Have a great Friday!

That is where my sister spent this past week but the only sites she saw were here three fine grandsons:)

I've driven through Kansas, but never visited Wichita. I'm a fan of Frank Lloyd Wright.

Great to meet you via A to Z.
