Wichita Falls is a significantly large city located in Northern Texas with about 100,000 inhabitants. This area was settled because people came to the area specifically to establish cattle farms. The city can thank its development to a select number of pioneers who established food processing centers, mills, railroads, banks, and later oil companies. As soon as oil was discovered in the area it instantly became very prosperous. The city got its name from a beautiful waterfall originating from the Wichita River, but sadly the original waterfall was destroyed in a flood in 1886. Because of its former popularity, and disappointed tourists looking for waterfalls, the city rebuilt the cascades, and although they are artificial they’re still a nice feature for the Texas town.
There are lot of things to do here so do not hesitate to visit the city and explore its beauty. Everyone must of course visit the rebuilt falls in Lucy Park, which gave the city its name. The River Bend Nature Center is a very nice place to visit where guests can see hundreds of butterflies, native flowers of Texas, and much more. This is also a kid friendly place to visit. Moreover, for a little hike check out Wee Chi Ta Mountain Bike Trail where fitness fanatics can get their blood pumping. The end of the trail connects to Lucky Parks so it makes a nice loop around the city and encompasses the best outdoor sites.
Additionally, Wichita Falls features some lovely museums for exploring not only the local history art but some very interesting and interactive exhibits about Texas too. The Museum of North Texas History is a super cool museum to check out and has just about every piece of Texas memorabilia on display. From cowboy hats, to oil drills, to info on the local Native American tribes, it screams Texas. Wichita Falls is also home to the Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame and Museum. Even those that are not the biggest fans of wrestling will be entertained by the costumes, wrestler stories, and awesome photography.
Wichita Falls is not a huge town but with that said finding a centrally located rental near the parks and museums that make it famous is a welcome convenience.
Summer in North Texas is hot! Best to plan a trip during the spring when temperatures are not as outrageous and Texas's beautiful wildflowers are in full bloom.
