Wichita, the largest city in the state,
has the state's largest buildings, biggest industries, and most venturesome
businesses. It is also the largest metropolitan area in the state with nearly
one-fifth of the state's population. It is home to more than 330,000 people
living in neighborhoods scattered over 120 square miles. Wichita encompasses
some 203,000 households with a mean household income of $38,000. The population
has grown steadily over the past decade with roughly 31,000 newcomers arriving
since the early 1980s.
Wichita is a community rich in culture,
sports, shopping, and varied activities for all members of your family. With
all of the attractions of a major metropolitan area, Wichita still has all the
qualities that make a smaller city appealing. Things like not having to fight
the traffic everywhere you go, or having neighborhoods where you know your
children are safe, and schools where parents still join the PTA. What better
place to raise a family!
Whatever kind of home life you like,
there's an area in Wichita where you'll fit right in. There are golf course
communities, a variety of well-established neighborhoods like College Hill and
Riverside, lakefront housing developments, as well as a wide selection of
condominiums and town homes.
