You Know You’re From Wichita Falls When…

City of Wichita Falls
City of Wichita Falls

Wichita Falls is  home to Sheppard Air Force BaseRider and Old High feuds, amazing clear blue skies, high winds, and the “World’s Littlest Skyscraper.” Wichita Falls is a city that has a little of everything.

I was born and raised in Wichita Falls and now I go to college here. Therefore, I feel that I’m “Wichitan” enough to make this list. This is a list of 15 items that you may be able to relate to other Wichitans about, especially if you grew up here.
