Review of Wichita, Kansas

Better than some places- harsh weather
Star Rating - 3/24/2018
After living in Seattle for 7 years I prefer Wichita. Violent crime worse in Wichita but property/vehicle crimes in Seattle MUCH worse and had to deal with CONSTANT panhandling from homeless junkies, and needles & open drug use everywhere. Harsh weather in ICT- humid summers & cold winters though not much snow. Zip codes that have lower crime- 67205, 67212, 67207 and 67226. Beware of any apts that allow Section 8- high crime. Best schools- Maize, Derby & Andover. Best special Ed' programs Maize & Andover. Check the crime rate for the neighborhood you are interested in- can't believe some people don't do this!! If you think gap between rich & poor is bad here you have never lived on the west or east coasts! MUCH worse there with thousands of homeless people who can't afford a place to live. Good luck & do your research :)
