Traveling from Dallas to South Dakota - taking I-35N & 281N. Looking for fun activities/tourist attractions/great meals along the way. This will be our last trip as a family as kids are moving out soon, so want to make the most out of this trip. Any suggestions would be so very much appreciated!!!
Will be arriving at Wichita Midfield Airport and need to get to the Budget Truck rental facility just down the road about 0.6 miles according to Google (looks to be inside the airport complex from satellite).
Anyone know of a short hop shuttle that would take 2 + carry-ons that short a distance at a reasonable price?
I would like to see and take picture of a huge Sunflower field (with sunflower on it :)). May I know where can find it in Kansas? And when is the best time to see the field? Thanks
I'm exploring Kansas for a week with my 9 yr old in Sept to see a different part of the country. If we stay in Hays one night can we get up, see Castle and Monument rocks, get to Mt Sunflower then down to Dodge City to stay that night or is that too much? If too much is there a good way to break it up or should we just head to Dodge after the rocks? The reason for Mt Sunflower is just because its silly and to set a quick foot in Colorado just to say we did.
I am visiting family in Kansas City for a week, and looking for interesting travel destinations around here - nature, scenery, attraction or anything else interesting... I have a car and wouldn't mind driving couple of hours.
I just got into town. Do I need to check my firearm with the Marshall?
When and where would be good to see sunflowers in kansas
We will be crossing Kansas from Denver to Kansas City along Rt 70 during the last week in September 2009. We are not campers and will have been in motels for the previous 4 weeks. Does anyone know of a B&B or Boarding House type of lodging along this route? We've never stayed at either. Any info, suggestions, or leads will be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Irv
I'll be taking I-70E on my way to Abilene the last week in Sept. and would appreciate any info on hotel/motels between Vicoria and Abilene along the way. Thanks.

Although planning is half the fun of travel, I'm very flexible and have already started tweaking our itinerary before we started. I would appreciate any diversions off this pretty long stretch of our 8,000 mile cross country trip. I'll be posting questions in several forums as I savor each segment. Thanks for all your responses so far, and for those I haven't solicited yet.
We are 3English people in our early 60s and active. We are planning a ranch holiday in Buena Vista, Colorado for a week, followed by 2weeks touring Kansas and would like to stay in old CowboTowns but at the moment we are having problems finding them. If anyone has any information/recommendations these would be really appreciated.
I am new to this website :-) so it is making me a little nervous. I hope to be at the right place to ask the following question...
I could use some help / suggestions with planning of a road trip (about 7 days) from Iowa to Arizona. My parents from Europe will arrive in Iowa sometime in March and plan on renting a car there. They would like to spend one week driving from Des Moines, IA to Phoenix, AZ. During their journey they would like to visit and see as many interesting places as possible - museums, parks, art, history, nature, .... anything interesting and unique to each state. Also, any advice as to where to stay (something more economical), during the 7 days on the road, would be much appreciated.
I currently reside in Pennsylvania but unfortunately don't really like the people here all that much,mostly because I have a different personality than northern people now. I'm originally from New Jersey but started exploring other areas as a youth. I suppose a long time ago I could have passed as a Pennsylvania farm boy but it seems the people here are a little harder edged than the people I had encountered in the south. I've also met a few people from Kansas and my take was that they seemed to be quiet and reserved,such as my personality most times. So,what about Kansas people?
Hi Am flying into Kansas City MO, then I have been told to take a shuttle bus to Junction City. From there I need to get to Abilene (am working at the Eisenhower Library) - any ideas? is a taxi the only way? Also other than the Library is there anything else to see or do in Abilene? I heard its small ;P Thanks for any help

Me and a few buddies will be passing through Kansas on a cross country road trip. We'll be heading from Denver to New Orleans and we were wondering about which cities along the way would be suitable for a bunch of mid 20's college grads. Bars, clubs, any nightlife in any cities other than KC (which is a bit out of the way for us). Thanks in advance. JP
Happy Kansas Day to my fellow jayhawks! Ad astra per aspera, my friends, and may your sunflower always follow the sun! Today marks the state's admission to the Union in 1861. In our grade school that meant a day churning butter to get a feel for pioneer life plus singing the state song, Home on the Range. It's a lovely tune and far more memorable than most other state songs. I mean, Here We Have Idaho?? :) Oh, the other thing we had to do was draw the state flag. This is one tall order for fourth-graders because it features Indians on horseback chasing bison, a wagon train, a farmer plowing the fields, a log cabin AND a steamboat on a river. Oh, and a mountain range, the great Imaginary Mountains that you can see 50 miles east of the Boondocks. I wonder, do other American states observe state days and are they nearly as fun?
I've always wanted to visit Peabody after hearing it's a particularly well-preserved town. In fact, I've learned it's one of two Kansas towns which has its entire downtown listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Which makes me wonder, what's the other one?? What other Kansas towns do you think have the best character, most handsome buildings, etc? Fort Scott and Council Grove come to mind.
