The Awesome Weekend Trip That Will Show You Kansas Like Never Before

Kansas is a wonderful place, but we all know that. However, there is a road trip this year that we think you shouldn’t miss out on. We no longer have the Kansas Sampler Festival, but you won’t find them slacking off when it comes to learning about our state. The whole idea behind this weekend trip is to get people out there and exploring small towns and restaurants, just like we do every day. Let’s check it out!

For this trip, you’ll pick your path through Barber, Comanche, and Kiowa counties for a Kansas-style adventure you’ll never forget. Restaurants with made-from-scratch food, buildings holding decades or centuries of history, amazing nature unique to this area, and some of the best people Kansas has to offer. After all, southern Kansas is a unique place filled with all sorts of reasons to visit. Mark May 3-6 on your calendar this year for The Big Kansas Road Trip, and let’s see what this area’s all about!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
