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.
