A little bit lowrise for a city approaching 300,000 itself. Not much of a metro population though. Nice looking enough.

My hometown of 60,000 people has a better skyline, but Wichita looks nice!

I've only been to Wichita once, but I thought downtown looked pretty cool from what I saw. I also agree, not too big, but not too small.

The skyline is disappointing but could be worse. It needs infill bad but I will say that Old Town was pretty nice and had lofts, shopping and cool places to eat so I definitely stop there everytime I'm up there.

What hometown is that? Just so I can search out the skyline.
