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.

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/

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.
