The Kechi/Wichita area has all the perks of a big city (great food, music, downtown atmosphere, etc.). Still, one can easily get away from the noise as one could in a smaller town. There's room for city folk and country folk alike!

I like the small town feel and home feeling you get from living here. Plus, you are not too far away from a larger town with everything you could ever need. It is a great atmosphere to live in and be a part of.
There is a diverse and expansive community in this area. There are areas of spacious property as well as tight-knit neighborhoods. Most people are friendly, and there's plenty to do and get involved in when it comes to community events. Some events are small, while others include hosting big-name recording artists and other professionals from around the world.
