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; therefore, I feel that I’m “Wichitan” enough to make this list. So, here’s a list of 14 things you may be able to relate to other Wichitans about, especially if you grew up here.
