Lisa loves animals and has dogs, rats, cats, guinea pigs, and snakes. She is passionate about animal rescue and live music - traveling across the country to see a favorite band is a pretty regular occurrence! Being out hiking in the woods enjoying the scenery with her beloved dogs is another favorite hobby, and also checking out the Pokemon Go scene in whatever city she happens to be in at any given time (coffee and dog leash in hand).

We admit it – even though we love Kansas, it’s not exactly the world’s most popular vacation destination. We’re pretty unappreciated by most of the rest of the country, often considered a flyover state with miles of flat plains, farmland, and not much else. Of course, anyone who’s actually been here knows that nothing could be further from the truth. There are plenty of great ideas for a weekend trip in the Sunflower State, whether you’re looking to visit some of the best small towns in Kansas or explore our state parks. One surprising place that we think is one of the best towns in Kansas is the city of Hays. It’s one of the largest cities in the quiet western portion of the state, which tends to have a little less going on than the bustling cities like Overland Park and Wichita towards our east.
There are so many amazing things to do in Hays that make it one of the best towns in Kansas. What are some of your favorite things to do in Kansas? Share your thoughts in the comments!
