Holidays in Kansas

If you've come looking for Dorothy and her red shoes, you won't find them here. What you will find though is a place where the skies are so big they go on forever and the sweeping prairies roll endlessly away into the distance. This is the very heart of America, a place to soothe the soul of the most jaded of city dwellers, and where the spirit of the Old West still hangs in the air.

A big part of Kansas holidays is about getting in touch with America's past. This is the State where pioneers forged a path west along the Santa Fe Trail and where cowboys drove longhorn cattle north. It's also the home of Dodge City, the cradle of the Great Plains and the site of hard-fought battles between settlers and Native American tribes. It's almost a living, breathing Western movie.

And you can see all that still. A visit to Council Grove reveals age-old wagon ruts along the path of the Santa Fe trail. In the Flint Hills you can walk among some of the USA's last remaining Tallgrass prairies. In Wichita, the Old Cowtown Museum recreates life as it was lived here in the 1870s. There's some fascinating Native American museums and monuments to visit. And Dodge City is alive and kicking to this day - although the saloons and gunslingers have gone.

One of the loveliest things about holidays in Kansas is that you can drive for miles on quiet roads, just drinking in the scenery and nodding to local farmers as they pass by. You can explore towns where time seems to have stood still, enjoy succulent beef from a local ranch and hang out at the rodeo. And if you must have an Oz fix, there's the Oz Museum in Wamego.

Top destinations for your next Kansas Holiday

Tallgrass Prairie Preserve

Only four per cent of the tall grasslands that once covered most of the United States and sustained the buffalo herds is left. One of the best tracts is in the Flint Hills, where you can walk among the waving river of grass, and discover all about Kansas' ranching tradition and Native American heritage. There's also the remains of a 19th-century ranch to explore.

Flights of Fancy

Aviation addicts and space junkies have plenty to keep them happy on holidays in Kansas. Wichita's Aviation Museum is set inside the old municipal airport building and showcases over 40 locally produced aircraft, including Cessnas, Boeings and Learjets. And Hutchinson's Cosmosphere and Space Centre has the Apollo 13 spacecraft and the gloves Neil Armstrong wore on the moon.

Boot Hill Museum

Dodge City's Boot Hill Museum is a homage to its past, when it was the very essence of a lawless Wild West frontier town during the days of sheriff Wyatt Earp. The museum recreates Front Street as it was back in 1876, complete with authentic artefacts and re-enactments. You can even tour notorious Boot Hill Cemetery, where the unlucky were buried with their boots still on.

Native American History

Kansas' story is so bound up with that of the Native American tribes who lived here way before the pioneers arrived, that no one should miss the fascinating Mid-America All-Indian Center in Wichita. It's the place to learn all about the traditions and fate of the Plains Indians.

Monument Rocks

Strangely formed chalk pillars towering 70 feet into the air stand in two stretched out rows in western Gove County. Remnants of a vast inland sea that covered the state 80 million years ago, their stark white shapes make for an eerie site highlighted against the endless Kansas sky.
