Riversiders will tell you that we are Midtown and not Riverside but 2 minutes out our back door, we can find the river. This neighborhood rocks and gets to lay claim to some small portion of the beatnik generation, by virute of Ginsberg and his homies hanging out here, back in the day. It's super diverse...

This neighborhood is very family friendly. It is a good place to raise your children or settle down with a loved one.
Kansas has all four seasons, sometimes in one day. Spring is pleasant and usually wet and mild. Summers are nice but can become extremely hot and have risk for droughts and severe storms with tornado's although none have ever hit Wichita. Autumn is beautiful with clear crisp days, a beautiful transition to winter. Winter can sometimes be harsh with frigid temperatures and lots of snow, but then some years it has mild temperatures and little snow.
