Take A Drive Down Esplanade Street, One Of Kansas’s Oldest Roads, For A Beautifully Scenic Day

Can you say you’ve driven on one of Kansas’s oldest roads before? Kansas isn’t by any stretch the oldest state in our country, but 1861 is still pretty old if you ask us. We don’t have many cities older than Kansas, but this old spot is one that many may not remember. I wonder what the view would look like back then!

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/

When on your trip, we recommend a great day of driving N Esplanade or a picnic out on the walking paths by the railroad tracks running the length of the river. Make a day of it!
