Welcome to Honors Takes Old Town. This self-guided tour is designed to introduce you to Old Town Wichita and other Honors students. Over the next three and three quater years, these are the people you will be in class with, attend events with, and with whom you will form friendships. We want you to explore Old Town Wichita, its history and culture, a piece of the greater community in which you will live and play and potentially work in after graduation. Not only will you be learning about Wichita history and culture, but you will also be directed to some local businesses. These have been included with cheap days/nights out in mind. These are awesome window shopping venues, particularly for college students low on funds but who want to hit the town with friends or on a date. As you explore, these businesses offer opportunities to see something interesting and chat about. There are a few murals along the way as well.
Behind you is the Museum of World Treasures, an eclectic mix of exhibits and just one of Wichita's many Museums. In front of you is an ICT tradition. The Old Town Farm & Art Market is held every Saturday morning during the season. Local farmers and artisans offer a range of goods. Show up early for produce, those who sleep-in tend to miss out as the early birds raid the produce.
We will be starting off shortly after 10 am with a short browse through the Market.
