This Delightful General Store In Kansas Will Have You Longing For The Past
That feeling that takes you back to the “good ol’ days” can sometimes be hard to locate when you’re surrounded by updated cities with shrinking historical districts. A good thing to note, however, is that small towns are always in the business of making us feel like we’re in the past. Kansas small towns aren’t really complete without that tiny grocery store with one or two checkout lanes, and family run restaurants you’ve never heard of. What happens when those towns are on Route 66? They get even older, and that feeling of walking back in time is readily available at this general store.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
