25 Best Kansas Day Trips

By Vacation Idea on February 13, 2022


Kansas, the land where buffaloes used to roam through miles of prairie landscape, has something to offer every visitor. This is true pioneer country and countless little towns like Abilene, Wakefield, St Marys, Wamego and Hays have great stories to tell if you take the time to listen. Spirited Dodge City embodies the essence of Western Cowboy Culture and in Marysville you can visit the Union Pacific Depot to see some of the original rolling stock which formed part of the original railroad through Kansas. If you enjoy outdoor recreation you will find plenty on offer in Lake Atwood, Lake Jacoma and the Prairie Dog State Park (near Norton). A quick drive across the border into Missouri offers still more interesting day trip destinations like Weston and Independence. Certain attractions may be temporarily closed or require advance reservations. Some restaurants are currently offering pickup only. Hours/availability may have changed.
