Choose Wichita > Make a Comeback
Welcome [Back] to Wichita
It's time for a reintroduction. Wichita's passion and grit remains relentless, but a lot has changed. Your box of local goodies was just a glimpse - this is your source to dive deeper into what's new. Peruse jobs, look at houses, compare costs and read about boomerangs living their best lives here. Wichita is making a comeback. Now, it's your turn.

"I love that in the past 10 years the city and its offerings have gotten much more sophisticated. The city has things to do and fun options to choose from, yet it's small enough that you can really know your neighbors."
– Elizabeth Cochran, prior resident of Los Angeles and New York City

Moved back after living in Denver
It's easier to live here. The time spent at work and traveling to work is significantly diminished compared to Denver. This lets me get home sooner each day to enjoy many of the same amenities like spending more time with family, great restaurants and great craft beer. It's also easier to make a difference. People are accessible and supportive of your ideas to improve the community.
Moved back after living in Dallas and Providence
If you're thinking about moving back, just do it because you will not regret it (and call me if you are second guessing, because I did too)! Experiencing Wichita as an adult is entirely different than it was as a child. I love the people of Wichita. We are warm, friendly, are full of Wichita pride and will do all we can to show support for our community.
Moved back after living in Delaware
My family and I decided to move back to Wichita because we missed the community and saw the potential for professional growth and opportunities that we did not have on the east coast. If you're thinking about moving back, DO IT! You will not regret it! Bring what you have learned from your time away and apply that to the industries and the community.
Moved back after living in LA, New York City and New Orleans
I love access to leadership. I love the entrepreneurial support from every corner high and low. I love the big industries. I love that there is so much untapped potential with respect to what's possible with startups and how I can play a role in that evolution. I love that Wichitans love Wichita. I love the pioneering spirit and drive around 'let's do more together'.
Moved back after living in Dallas, Phoenix and Prescott, AZ
I used to pay my monthly rent and dream of a day I could buy a home living in my pricy mountain town. We don't have mountains or a forest here, but I owned my first home within a year of moving back. Its on a half-acre of land and costs way less than the monthly rent I was paying before. In a time where many can work remote and live anywhere, why not here where it is affordable?!
Moved back after living in Chicago, LA, Hong Kong, Singapore and Tokyo
This is an amazing home base. Super easy to live here. I feel like the size is big enough to keep me challenged and small enough for me to be able to really make a difference here. You'll have more time for family and money for travel. Plus, international travel is easier than you imagine, you basically have one layover to get to any major city in the world. (Trust me, I've done much more than my share of international travel from ICT.)
Moved back after living in Minneapolis, Chicago and Charlotte
I decided to move back because this is my hometown - it's where my friends and family are and I received a great job opportunity. It's an inexpensive and easy place to live with a ton of great things going on in the city. You can be as engaged as you want to be, give back and make a positive impact.
