10 Once-In-A-Lifetime Adventures You Can Only Have In Kansas
There seems to be a common misconception regarding Kansas and the “fact” that there is nothing to do… Obviously, this is not the case and we at Only in Kansas are here to debunk this myth by providing you with these 10 once-in-a-lifetime adventures that you can only find in our great state:
1. Keep a close eye out for UFO's...
Have you ever been staring at one of Kansas's pristine nighttime skies and spotted something... peculiar? Was it a bird? A plane? Superman? Find out for sure when you hit the road (err, field) with the
Adventure Tours of Kansas
and their state-of-the-art equipment.
2. ...and ghosts.
3. Try out a different BBQ spot every weekend for two months.
How else are you supposed to decide who has the best tender, fall-off-the-bone meats in the entire state?
4. Touch the sky without ever leaving the ground.
Have you ever seen a REAL meteorite? Me neither... let's plan our trip to the
Kansas Meteorite Museum
where we can not only see these "space rocks", but touch them.
5. See (and hear) the Flint Hills like never before.
If you think the Flint Hills are extraordinary on just an "ordinary" day, wait until you see (and hear) them as the background of a world-class symphony orchestra. (The next
Symphony in the Flint Hills
will take place June 10, 2017.)
6. Dine amongst exotic animals.
Kansas is chock-full of beautiful bed and breakfasts... but a bed and breakfast that is also home to a number of giraffes, camels, and zebras? You can only find that at the fabulous
Hedrick's Exotic Animal Farm
Bed and Breakfast

Talk about a tough design job; Edward and Dianna Peden reclaimed and redecorated this former Atlas E intercontinental ballistic missile in 1994 and have been living in (and giving tours of) their
8. Peruse a quirky art exhibit (or two).
Kansas is the unofficial home to the grassroots art movement (meaning artists with no previous formal training), so make sure to get out to peruse the always fascinating
Garden of Eden
9. Travel 650 feet beneath the Earth’s surface.
Did you know that there are 15 working salt mines in the U.S., but Hutchinson's
is the only one that allows visitors? Ride the Dark Ride, visit the Underground Vaults & Storage Gallery, and check out all there is to see at this Kansas gem.
10. Ride the trolley around the "most haunted town in Kansas."
Experience Atchison like before when you ride the
to some of the spookiest locations in this historic railroad town.
