It is hard to believe that July is almost over, meaning that summer vacation is coming to a close in about a month. Have you had any of those big summer adventures that you had anticipated? If you have, keep the momentum going by adding these to your adventure list; if you have not, it is time to check out these perfect places to go in Kansas if you’re feeling adventurous:
1. Catch a glimpse of a ghost.
You say you aren't afraid of ghosts, now prove it by taking one of
guided tours, which vary from cemetery walks to haunted trolley rides to a spooky glimpse into the world famous Sallie House (pictured).
2. Dig for dinosaurs.
"How did you spend your summer vacation?"
"I visited my grandma in Wisconsin... you?"
"Oh, you know; just digging up fossils and discovering a new breed of dinosaur... so, the usual."
Your summer can be this epic when you join
Adventure Tours of Kansas
for an unforgettable fossil dig.
3. Spot a UFO.
Did we mention that
Adventure Tours of Kansas
also offer opportunities for star gazing and UFO sightings with their state-of-the-art technology?
4. Spend some one-on-one time with Mr. President.
5. Dodge a shootout in Dodge City.
Welcome to the
Boot Hill Museum
; your ticket to the past complete with can-can dancers dressed in colorful garb, bygone stores, and even some good old fashioned cowboy shootouts in the streets.
6. Follow the Yellow Brick Road.
When it comes to enjoying the Wizard of Oz firsthand, Kansans have a few options: the colorful

Dorothy's House & Land of Oz
in Liberal. (Heck, it's still summer; tap your heels together and wish to go to both!)

Wildwood Outdoor Adventure Park
, you have yet to REALLY experience them.

Kansas Hunting Adventures
, who specializes in deer hunting on their 4,000 acres of privately owned land.
9. Dine with exotic animals.
10. Zoom down the world's tallest water slide.
How fortunate are we to have the world's tallest water slide (the Verrückt at
) right in our own backyard? Now suck it up and get ready to plunge down the 168-foot 7-inch structure with your two bravest friends.
11. Kayak on Wilson Lake.
Most Kansas state parks have areas to rent equipment for various water sports, so bring your wet suit and prepare to get your splash on.
