This Sunday is Kansas Day! The best way to celebrate it is to take your family to visit some Kansas History!
We have a ton of places in Kansas rich with history and we have great local events. I have picked a few of my favorites and a few I have not heard of to give you some ideas if you want to try something different this year!
First off in Manhattan (only a 2-hour drive) there is the National Tall Grass Prairie Preserve. You can walk the trails and see some great views at the Konza Prairie, located in the Preserve. It is a really cool experience to walk the trails!
In Wichita, you have a few things. There are Cow Town and the Exploration Place. Both are always changing with exhibits and would be fun to see what’s new.
Go to Lindsborg! Here you will experience a Swedish culture and visit all their Dala horses! Also, the McPherson County Mill museum is there, along with it’s a small world museum and great Swedish food!
Fort Scott has a great museum called the Fort Scott Frontier Roots. This would be a bit of a road trip, but it is beautiful country on the way. In addition to that, there are a few Civil War Battle Fields you can stop at on the way.
Last, in Saline county you can visit the Rolling Hills Wildlife Adventure. You get to stroll past 100+ animals here! Also, you can count the spots on a leopard or see unusual markings on the Baboons!
Those are only a few things you can do in Kansas! The main things to do is get out there and visit Kansas with your family, these will be the memories they remember!
