Derby is a city situated in the Wichita metropolitan area, which is part of Kansas, United States.
Derby is good for those who prefer quiet areas, as there are low levels of noise from traffic - although there are still several noisier sections, especially closer to the railway line or one of the 2 airports (Cook Airfield Inc, McConnell Air Force Base).
About three quarters of the units in the city are occupied by home owners while renters occupy the remainder. The housing stock of this city is composed predominantly of single detached homes and townhouses. Around one quarter of properties in this city were constructed since the year 2000, while the majority of the remaining buildings were built pre-1960 and in the 1960s. This city also has a variety of unit sizes - it is quite easy to find houses ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms.
Purchasing one's groceries very often necessitates the use of a vehicle in Derby. Residents of Derby are served by over 50 restaurants as well. As far as education is concerned, there are only a few high schools and primary schools in this city and consequently they can be an extended walk away. Besides public schools, there are private elementary and secondary schools.
Derby is very car friendly. It is especially convenient to park. On the other hand, this part of the Wichita metropolitan area is not very suitable for walking because most daily needs are challenging to meet without the use of a car.
