Many cheap, family friendly activities occur in Sedgwick County almost everyday. There is always a chance to seize the day and not be bored. Around the holidays there are always ways to be involved in the community; such as cleaning the river or taking action when the turkey drive happens. If people are planning to visit I would definitely recommend them to come to Wichita. So much history can be seen here inside of our museums, especially to see the famous Indian.
