This summer has seen a growth in living options for Downtown Wichita Falls.

Thanks to Downtown Development’s extensive efforts to bring life back to the area, more living spaces have begun to pop up and they are eclectic and cozy!

Austin School Lofts, The Holt Hotel, LaSalle Crossing, Travis Crossing, 9th Street Lofts, The Landmark on Lamar, and City Center Apartments are listed on the website. They cater to many demographics, from senior citizens to college students. There are luxury lofts and charming floor plans inside these historic buildings.

The Downtown Wichita Falls Development team recently moved into their own new location on Indiana and painted their facade a beautiful blue! You won’t be able to miss it when you’re walking around the area. This welcome center is perfect to go in and get information on businesses, upcoming events, or living spaces.

Downtown continues to show growth in foot traffic as the After Hours Artwalk brings more visibility to the area and more things to do. Artists all over the city have flocked to the area to showcase their skills, from traditional art to henna tattoos and live music on every corner. The Artwalk begins in April and ends in October occurring the first Thursday of the month.

Artwalk gets an encore!

This year, the community asked for an encore in November and the DWFD agreed. Get your jackets ready for November 7th, 2019 and join in the festivities for the After Hours Artwalk Encore!

There’s so much happening downtown!

The Midwestern State University newspaper “The Wichitan” posted an article listing five hotspots in the area. Read here.

You can’t forget the wineries! Hook & Ladder and 6th Street Winery are open to serve you their own special blends. Wichita Falls Brewing Company brews its own specially crafted beers (which you can take with you as you walk downtown). The nightlife is abundant and so is the shopping with places like Ramble & Company who sell Wichita Falls branded items, perfect for gifting yourself or others.

There is also plenty of vintage/antique shopping available, and when you need a bite to eat, you have a plethora of options! Gypsy Uncorked, Half Pint Taproom, Karat Bar & Bistro, Ganache Cupcakes, Zeke’s BBQ, P-2, Scratch Kitchen, Progress & Provisions, B Cocoa Artisan Chocolates, and more! Check out the list of businesses downtown here.

When you’re ready for live entertainment, look no further than Backdoor Theatre, Wichita Theatre, and Iron Horse Pub! The theatres offer numerous shows throughout the year and the casts are local entertainers. The Iron Horse Pub recently celebrated 19 years in its location and boasts the best live music in the area with bands from all over the world playing in their Irish pub atmosphere.

With so many things to do, it’s no wonder more housing options are on the rise in Downtown Wichita Falls. You’re invited, too!
