Newton, Kansas is a sleepy little Kansas town located approximately 30 minutes north of Wichita. I liked living in Newton because it afforded small town charm mixed with the convenience of living near a major metropolitan area. Job opportunities are plentiful in Wichita, offering everything from positions in aviation at Boeing or at Koch Industries. A big selling point of Newton is its low cost of living, making Newton an ideal choice for families.
The best areas in Newton are the historical museums, such as the Kauffman Museum and the Warkentin House Museum. Both of these tourist attractions offer a glimpse into important people and eras in Kansas history. Golf enthusiasts will appreciate teeing it off at the charming and scenic Sand Creek Station Golf Course. In addition to golf, the beauty of the four distinct seasons in Newton lends to a variety of outdoor recreational opportunities. Residents and visitors alike love to nosh on Newton's famous bierocks and other local flavors.
