The 23 Very Best Day Trips You Can Possibly Take In Kansas
I know you’re probably thinking about how there’s no way there can be 23 awesome day trips in Kansas. Well, I’m here to tell you that you’re wrong! There’s plenty more, but I figured 23 is a large enough serving of some of the best wonders that fill our state from border to border.
1. Historic Council Grove
2. Deanna Rose Children's Farmstead (Overland Park)
3. Hays Happenings
Hays is a town filled with great food and greater people. My personal favorites are the Sternberg museum, and the aquatic park, which are also great hits with the kids.
Find out more with this link!
4. Hutchinson Highlights
Hutchinson isn't a town for everyone, but you can't argue that it doesn't have a lot of fun things for you and your family to do. There's the Cosmosphere, Strataca, and plenty of places to catch a great bite to eat.
Check out more here.
5. The Perfection Weekend trip (SC Kansas)
6. Prairie Lavender Farm (Bennington)
7. Webster State Park
Kansas has quite a few state parks, and they're all one of a kind, that's for sure. This one's a home run when it comes to scenery, which makes it a top getaway location for campers.
8-16. 9 more Kansas State Parks that need a little love
There are nine more state parks here you should visit, though! They need some love and tourist attention, and what better way than to take a weekend to camp out at these gorgeous waterfront spots?
Check them all out here in this list!
17. Timber Ridge Adventure Center (Olathe)
This place is amazing! You'll need a reservation, but they offer all sorts of outdoor activities for all ages to participate in. What a way to spend a summer day!
You'll have to see it all for yourself.
18-21. Four different train trips.
There are currently four different train trips you can take right here in Kansas,
including one where you'll get to meet Thomas himself. Why not take a day out with your favorite railfan?
Check out more on each one right here.
22. A 400 mile, 3-day antique sale stretching from East to West.
This day trip sounds just crazy! Yes, it's really that long, and it stretches from the Missouri border to the Colorado border in one long line of thrift shops and antique sales. What isn't there to love about this?

23. Vogel Family Vineyards (Galena)
Wine lovers everywhere, don't leave yet. This winery here in Kansas is just a scheduled tour away from being your favorite place to take a day out of the house. While you're there, why not take some home with you? It's worth a bottle or three, for sure.
on this great local winery can be found here.
