My hometown pride runs deep. A native Wichitan and travel writer, I’ve authored “100 Things to Do in Wichita Before You Die” for Reedy Press. The book is filled cover to cover with timeless destinations and lesser-known places.
Affectionately referred to as “Doo-Dah,” Wichita is a midsize city of almost 400, 000 residents who appreciate it for its affordability and many attractions. Any town or city is what you make it, and it’s up to those who explore it to stay curious. 100 Things to Do in Wichita Before You Die is a bucket-list book with quintessential places and experiences you’ll love.
It wasn’t easy narrowing down a list to only 100 things to do. I thought to myself, “Who would need this book?” I wrote it as a resource for visitors to Wichita, long-time residents, and newcomers. Actually, the book features more than 100 things to do, as I’ve also bonus lists and insider tips.
People love the book! It earned 1st place in the Kansas Professional Communicators’ 2023 Communications Contest in the Adult, Nonfiction category. The judge wrote, “What a delightful book. the one-page descriptions really work, and your voice sings as your love of the venues shines through.”
Stay curious. #100ThingsWichita
