    I already knew there were a lot of things to love about Wichita. But after picking up this amazing book, there are so many more places I need to explore. Author Vanessa Whiteside does an amazing job melding local favorites with off-the-beaten-path hidden gems. Whether you’re a local looking to dig deeper into your hometown or a traveler visiting for a few days, this handy guide is essential reading!

    I loved meeting Vanessa at a recent book signing. This is a great book for life long residents and even for people that just moved to Wichita or surrounding areas. I’m excited to try some new places!

    I’ve lived in Wichita all my life and I must say Vanessa does a great job of covering the many high points. Great job capturing the essence of Wichita with these awesome places to visit. A must have book for visitors and long time residents as well.

    I have lived in Wichita, KS for 44 years. I was shocked as I read this wonderful book at the things I have not seen in Wichita these past 44 years.

    Vanessa has written this book so it is easy to read and she provides tips along the way so you don’t miss something.

    Vanessa’s writing style causes me to want to explore more and learn more of the history of Wichita. She tells you just enough to spark your interest and provides a bright light at the end of the long tunnel that tells you to go see this thing, touch this, smell this, and experience this for yourself and don’t miss this experience.

    My twin granddaughters that are 14 years old now love history. Together we will take Vanessa’s book and go out in to Wichita and experience these 100 things to see before I die.

    Thank you Vanessa for this wonderful book and May God continue to bless you and keep you in your future endeavors.

    I’m born and raised in Wichita and have read and heard many of the stories. A lot of amazing things in Wichita that I had forgotten about. And many more things that brought wonderful memories from my life. Both are tremendous books and well written.
