Wellington is located at Exit 19 of I-35 (Kansas Turnpike), approximately 23 miles south of Wichita. After entering I-35 at Exit 19, you can arrive in the Wichita metro area in as little as 18 minutes. In comparison, it can take at least 20 minutes (perhaps longer if there is traffic congestion) to get from the west-side of Wichita to the east-side of Wichita on Kellogg!
Wellington is also approximately 10 minutes south of the newest entertainment destination in Kansas, the Kansas Star Casino and Equestrian Events Center. This means Wellington residents are afforded the charm of the rural country, while remaining close to big-city amenities. With the convenience of I-35 located just east of the community, Wellington is easily connected to virtually anywhere you want to go. We are close enough to Wichita for convenience, yet far enough to allow for peace, quiet, and relaxation!
For businesses, Wellington's location translates into abundant opportunity. With the close proximity to Wichita and surrounding rural communities, Wellington provides the high-quality labor resources demanded by businesses. And, because of the immediacy of I-35, the large markets of Wichita, Kansas City, Oklahoma City, Denver, and Dallas are easily accessible. Wellington addresses two of the primary factors for business growth - quality labor resources and proximity to markets.
