Located 15 miles south of the Texas/Oklahoma border, Wichita Falls has flourished since 1872 when the town was officially named. As of the 2010 US census, the population of Wichita Falls was 104,553. This is a slow-growing population that lives within 70.1 square miles of a somewhat humid and sub-tropical climate. The weather here can become intensely hot in the summers, which typically run from June through August, and extremely cold in the winters. Add in the occasional tornado, and you have a continually changing climate that always keeps you on your toes! In 1886, the Falls for which the city was named were destroyed by a flood. Nearly 100 years later, and after many tourist and local complaints, the city built an artificial waterfall to represent the original 'Wichita Falls' next to the river in Lucy Park. There's a great selection of rental apartments, rental homes and houses to buy in Wichita Falls, so no matter what you're looking for, there's a good chance the town will have something for you.

Local ShoppingShopping in Wichita Falls is more exciting than one might initially think! Somewhere In Time Antique Mall over on Ohio Street is a 12,000 square foot store filled with European and American antiques, all artfully displayed and temptingly priced. If you aren't interested in the old, head over to Three Dog Books on Scott Avenue and browse the shelves. Hopefully you will find your next nightstand book and snatch it up! However, if you are more of the one-stop kind of person, the Sikes Senter Mall on Midwestern Parkway might be more to your liking. There are over 80 stores to browse and pilfer, all inside and air conditioned for your comfort.
NightlifeShopping isn't the only thing to do in Wichita Falls. Locals enjoy getting out and going dancing at Texas Nite Life over on Archer City Hwy or pushing their vocals chords to the limit at Krank It Karoke Kafe on N Scott Avenue. However, if dancing and singing are too active for your tastes, the Water Hole on Old Iowa Park Road is a local favorite for hanging out and enjoying a beer with friends. One last place absolutely worth mentioning is The Outskirts out on Old Jacksboro Hwy. If you want to experience a real Texas honky-tonk where Stetsons, Ropers and line dancing are the norm, then this is the bar for you!
