The best way for groups to explore Wichita is on a tour. The city’s Q-Line is a fun, free way to explore downtown, the Historic Delano District, and the up-and-coming Douglas Design District—home to local shops, restaurants, and breweries.
Smaller groups of beer or wine enthusiasts can hop aboard a Brew Wagon Tour. During a three-hour excursion around Wichita, guests try some of the city’s award-winning breweries and other local businesses that create craft beverages, such as hard cider and kombucha tea.
Wichita boasts an incredible art scene. Groups can engage in painting, glassblowing, and culinary classes at some of Wichita’s top art venues and restaurants like Mark Arts, City Arts, Paint the Towne, and The Kitchen.
During the day, explore Wichita’s Museums on the River and at dusk, experience the Keeper of the Plains sculpture. When the sun goes down, groups will be delighted watching the firepots light up around the iconic Wichita landmark.
Get plenty of steps while enjoying internationally recognized Sedgwick County Zoo. The 250-acre zoo features more than 3,000 animals and nearly 400 species grouped geographically in settings mimicking their natural habitats.
Groups can also participate in a friendly race along the Arkansas River by renting kayaks, pedal boats, scooters, and more from Boats and Bikes. If you want to keep your crew on their toes, reserve an indoor or outdoor pickleball court at Chicken N Pickle.
Your group can sip from a botanical martini bar while creating their own terrariums at GROW or try their hand at ax throwing at Axe to Grind, Blade and Timber, and Kiss My Axe! Throwing.
