9 Amazing Natural Wonders Hiding In Plain Sight In Kansas — No Hiking Required

Many Kansans have an insatiable love for the outdoors, but some (like me) can’t always rely on hiking as a way to find amazing natural wonders. These spots are right in plain sight, which makes them perfect for anyone who doesn’t get excited about a hike.

9. Bourbon State Fishing Lake (Elsmore)

Kansas has quite a few great waterfalls, but this one is particularly loud and showy, which makes it a great one for the family. It’s also at a fishing lake, so why not catch some cats while you’re at it?

With all this natural beauty, it’s confusing to hear people call us a flyover state! For more gorgeous places to visit right here in the Sunflower State, check out this list of Spring must-see spots.
