If you have never had an occasion to see the majesty of a tallgrass prairie then a visit to the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve in the Kansas Flint Hills is a must. With less than four percent of America’s original 170-million acres of land that used to be tallgrass prairie, this location is one of the only places left in America to experience it.
You can take a bus tour, a self-guided cell phone tour, or hike the area at your leisure. One of the most special ways to experience the tallgrass prairie and its ties to America’s heartland is during one of the special events that are scheduled throughout the year, like an open-air symphony concert.
Location: 2 miles north of Strong City on K-177, Kansas.
