Though Kansas is sometimes referred to as one of the “fly over states,” each of the travel regions has amazing points of interest and a wide range of outdoor activities for everyone to enjoy. For decades thousands of people migrated across the Sunflower State on the California, Oregon, and Santa Fe Trails. The famous Lewis & Clark Expedition, Pony Express Mail Service, and the Chisholm Trail are all part of Kansas’ captivating past. Today, a trip through Kansas will uncover its Native American roots, cowboy culture, European influences, aviation history, and, of course, the location of one of America’s most-loved movies— The Wizard of Oz. Our day trip recommendations start from Wichita and highlight some of the state’s amazing things to do.
