The best time to visit Wichita Falls, Texas was before August, especially before the big Hotter 'N Hell Hundred bike race because all of the best places to stay were taken at that time and it was very hot from early June until mid- September with many severe storms that sometime develop into tornadoes.

This article only highlighted some of the major things to do and see while visiting Wichita Falls, Texas. Where one stayed depended on what they visited. The best thing to do if one didn't have a car was to be aware of the city bus line. Just make sure to have a lot of pocket change if one planned to tour the city. The good news was, there were specials offered on their web site too so be sure to check them out before using the City Transit, or bus line.

The best way to see and do almost anything in Wichita Falls would be to visit The Convention and Visitor's Bureau either online or in person for a good guide in what to see and where to visit places to eat and stay. The city also had a monthly calendar of events so one could pick and choose what to see.

One of the biggest attractions in the city at this time was Castaway Cove. It has survived being bought by the city and the current severe Stage 4 and 5 drought situation Wichita Falls and some of the other southern states were going through. Because of the heat of the day one was warned to bring plenty of water and suntan lotion. Information on park pass specials were found on their web site.

The Bible said, in Haggai 1:11:

11 I called for a drought on the fields and the mountains on the grain, the new wine the olive oil and everything else the ground produces, on people and livestock, and on all the labor of your hands (NIV).

If being outside wasn't to one's liking, there were plenty of other attractions to visit that were indoors and had air conditioning. For instance, MPEC had a lot of activities during the summer a list of events were found on their web site also. For those who loved history there were plenty of historical sites to visit too.

Most of the major attractions were near the major hotel, motel. and restaurants. Some were possibly within walking distance, which made things better. Armed with information from a computer or a smart phone, one could enjoy their visit to this small city.
