Things to do in Kansas
Kansas offers some true "out west" experiences, and lots of picturesque charm. There's a reason Dorothy and Toto wanted to return home!
You can travel to the cities for top notch entertainment, shopping, museums, art galleries, restaurants and music.
You can experience life as a pioneer too - visit a real Frontier fort, Dodge City, follow a cowboy trail.
If you would like a slower pace, the beautiful countryside will allow you a bit of exploration. Small, rural towns, farmers markets, antique shops, historical landmarks and Native American history are all found throughout the state.
