For a quarter each we took a wonderful 20 minute tour of the Old River District and downtown Wichita. The tram leaves the Old Cowtown parking lot about every 20 minutes, so it's really convenient to hop on after finishing your tour of Old Cowtown.
We really enjoyed the ride as it allowed us to discover some of the many other things to do and see in Wichita, and as a result we've planned to get back to Wichita in the near future to catch all the sights we didn't have time to see that day.
One of the first places we discovered was Botanica, just a few blocks from Old Cowtown. Another fascination you can find in Wichita is sidewalk art in the downtown area. These are bronze statues set into the sidewalk. On one corner was a bronze fox -- what a neat way to dress up a city.
The tram drove past several parks and then through the Old Market District and past Exploration Place, where we saw the magnificent statue of the Wichita Indian, before making it's way back to our point of departure.
If you are unfamiliar with Wichita and where things are located, this is a great way to discover places you are sure to want to go.
