Welcome to Wichita!

Not only has Wichita been named an All-American City four times since 1962, it also ranked among the top 32 cities nationally for quality of life. In fact, Money magazine recently named the Wichita community a Top 10 Best Place to live (right above New York City). These rankings communicate affordability, short and easy commutes to work and a high level of public safety for your family - attributes you simply can't find in most metro areas. Wichita's diverse business community truly prizes and encourages entrepreneurship and innovation - values confirmed by companies like Pizza Hut and Coleman Companies, which got their start right here in the middle of the heartland.

#ILoveWichita and the Wichita flag

A resurgence of Wichita pride has overtaken ICT, and at the center of the movement is the Wichita flag and #ILoveWichita. Although the flag was adopted in 1937, it has only recently grown in mainstream popularity. The flag, along with a grassroots #ILoveWichita campaign, has steadily gained momentum over the last year and a half. There are currently more than 2,300 posts on Instagram alone using the hashtags, each providing an authentic look into what makes Wichita unique.

The picture below is from a billboard campaign that began running in June 2016 using images from social media that have been posted using #ILoveWichita.
