Three Insta-Worthy Fall Spots in Wichita

There are a plethora of places in Wichita to take a one-of-a-kind photo, but the change in season makes some spots particularly fantastic. At these three locations, you can savor some of your favorite things about fall – warm-colored leaves, spooky vibes and cozy drinks – and get those Insta-worthy and #RelentlesslyOriginal snapshots.

Bartlett Arboretum

This century-old arboretum is located less than half an hour from Wichita. As autumn dawns, it becomes a mosaic of crimson, pumpkin orange and bright yellow. It’s no surprise that this magnificent outdoor space is popular for weddings, events and concerts. The creek, bridge and acres upon acres of flowers and trees make it impossible to take a bad photo. Make the most of your trip by attending a family-friendly concert featuring local and regional legends.

Leslie Coffee Co.

Leslie Coffee Co. sits in the corner of a historic building in Wichita’s Delano district. The developers retained its original historic vibe while adding modern touches, including a deep teal ceiling, gold accents, unique light fixtures and custom-designed wallpaper. Paired with one of its cozy seasonal drinks in hand, like the s’mores latte or new “Fall is in the Pear,” Leslie Coffee Co. makes for a notable backdrop to reign in the new season.

Spider Sculpture in Gallery Alley

If spooky is more your speed, visit artist Mike Miller’s sculpture titled “Machine-Nature Interface 88 (Arachnid).” The car-sized spider can be found at Gallery Alley in downtown Wichita, a once-underutilized alley transformed into a vibrant public space for art. At night, the body of the spider glows violet, further enticing visitors to take that Insta-worthy selfie. Arachnophobics beware.
