My neighborhood is very safe. There is occasionally a police car that will drive through the neighborhood at night, but not often, but that is acceptable due to the safety in the neighborhood.

A lot of people tend to look down on Wichita, Kansas because it is in the state of Kansas. I love it here and it is the largest city in the state and there is always something to do as long as you put your mind to it. It is not too big and not too small. I would live here again if I could choose as it has taught about the life of a city boy and a farm town. The city is constantly trying to expand and improve, so I believe big things are in store.
