Living in Wichita Falls, Texas

Welcome to Wichita Falls, the “The City that Faith Built”! Situated on the Wichita River in the north of Texas, Wichita Falls is as famous for its surrounding nature as it is for its city center. Pack a picnic basket and visit the 54-feet high eponymous falls in Lucy Park for a taste of the great outdoors. Then in the city center, pay a visit to the Newby-McMahon Building, commonly referred to as the “world’s smallest skyscraper”. Lucy Park also offers some excellent hiking trails, but make sure you cover up well with sunscreen when spending time outdoors – there is little cloud cover in Wichita Falls so it is easy to get burnt. Brave expats living in Wichita Falls may be tempted to take part in the annual Hotter’N Hell Hundred – the largest century bike race in the United States. Even if you aren’t racing; get out and support the sweating masses as they battle the heat.

An amazing community is waiting for you!

Moving to Wichita Falls

Expats moving to Wichita Falls will need to get used to the city’s long, hot summers, and the threat of tornado season. While the city is hot all year round (temperatures have been known to hit 88°F in January), from May until September they regularly top 100°F. Expatriates should therefore make sure to have access to a good aircon unit and not stay in the sun for too long during the day. Wichita Falls has experienced some fierce tornadoes over the years, causing hundreds of millions of dollars’ worth of damage. Any expatriate in Wichita Falls therefore needs to make sure to insure their property and valuables, and to make sure that they have quick and easy access to a storm shelter. When moving to Wichita Falls, familiarize yourself with the weather conditions leading up to a tornado and stock up on supplies such as batteries, flashlights, bottled water and canned goods. For advice on living in a tornado corridor or information on various other expat related topics, speak to other expatriates on the InterNations forums.

Working in Wichita Falls

Wichita Falls sits just south of the border between Texas and Oklahoma, and around 130 miles north of Dallas. Expats who are working in Wichita Falls will almost certainly need to make the journey to Dallas or Oklahoma City at some point, so make sure you have a reliable car, and are familiar with the driving laws and regulations in the United States. Don’t forget, most US cars are automatic, and cars are driven on the right hand side of the road in America. Make sure you have the right to work in the United States before setting off, and keep all your paperwork up to date while you are living in Wichita Falls. Sign up on InterNations and check out the content section as well as the forums for tips on assimilating to Texas life, and working in the US.
