Wichita Falls Things to Do

  • Wichita Falls

    These 54' Falls were man-made back in 1988 because the original falls washed away in a flood in the late 1800s. The city did a year-long campaign to raise money for the building of the new falls and decided to move them near the highway so passing motorists could catch a glimpse as they were passing by. The jogging trail that crosses the bridge...

  • Prairie Dog Park

    There are not alot to do in Wichita Falls but there is a good park to spend time in. My favorite one is on Southwest, across from the cemetery. It has some nice playground equipment, a baseball diamond, and a nice walking trail. Its quiet and laid back. Lots of children bring shovels and pails. And of course snacks for the prairie dogs.

  • Wichita Lake

    One of our Favorite Sunday afternoon activities was a picnic by Wichita Lake. And there is a dandy picnic area by the lake off Southwest Blvd. In addition to covered playgrounds there is a flight feild for modle airplanes, a basketball court and some really well kept playground eguipment. This is actually a really large park with several parking...

    No I am not kidding there really is a mexican buffet in Wichita Falls. It can be a bit pricey and you want to get there when dinner hits the bar. But it's a really good way to try several diffrent mexican dishes at once. They have like three kinds of enchalitas on the bar, as well as fahitas.And dessert as well. My favorite thing is that on Friday...

You will many chain restaurants as well as a lot of local eating places. They are all excellent and be sure and get your fill of Tex...

  • Sometimes You just need some spice

    Chilis is a good place for some casual cooking. They have a good aray of choices, that don't consist mostly of refried beans. It has some great appitizers too. And did i recommend the chicken? But if you don't catch the chillis here, don't worry its a big chain. Try the blooming onion, but beware it's huge. One will be a meal for me.

  • Don Jose's voted inconsistant

    I would say that this restarant is inconsistant. See mom went here on a date and talked about how great it was. She loved the enchalatias. And she said the beer was pretty groovy too. She said it had a real mexican feel to it. My friend took me on my Birthday and I wasen't impressed really. The food was OK. And the service was pretty good too. But...

    Everybody is quite friendly and helpful. There are several smaller strip malls around town but in the southwest part of town there is Sikes Senter which is a large indoor shopping mall with Sears, JC Penney, Dillards, Bealls, Gap, On the Border, Old Navy, and many other stores. There is a museum and art center as well as other historical sites of interest.

    There are a lot of school highway zones that very slow driving speeds. They are monitored by the police and you will get a speeding ticket.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Part of the charm of the Plex is the kiddie feel, The problem is that it has giant prices. The Plex is a amusment place of sorts. See it has video games, batting cages, mini golf bumper boats and go carts. It also sells refresments. But all this fun cames at a price, a big one. My friend spent $100.00 to feed and fun 3 people in one evening.

    Unique Suggestions: If you find this thing fun then keep an eye on the kiosk. Because on their off days they will run a bracelte special. Like $15 a person for a unlimited use of the facility. You can play mini golf, bumper boats, race go carts and play laser tag till ya fall over for only one price.

    Fun Alternatives: I would suggest eatting at Cici's on Southwestern Blvd, before you get to the plex from the main hyway if you want pizza, its cheaper. Or maybe hit one of the many fast food places. Trust me....

    The Holy City Set

    If you want to take a little day trip then drive up to the Wichita Mts near Fort Sill Oklahoma. Its about 45 minutes away. They have a wild life reserve that houses Buffalo and Long Horn Cattle. You can drive thru the park and get some great pictures. There is also a sight worth seeing The Holy City. And remember Don't try to touch the animals!

    In the summer, catch a Drillers game. Forget about those overpaid, middle-aged brats from Dallas - the Drillers are a REAL football team. And I don't even particularly care for football.In the winter: The Fantasy of Lights, front lawn of Midwestern State University. It's hard to describe - basically it's dozens of animated light displays, from...

    You absolutlely must go to Bar L and have a red draw, Beer with tomato juice. And while you there sample good Texas BBQ ribs as well. Don't forget to visit the falls either. Wichita Falls is home and is a great town for working and raising a family.
