Who doesn’t love a good story? The North Central region of Kansas introduces inspiring characters like former President Dwight D. Eisenhower (who loved reading history books as a boy in Abilene), “Home on the Range” poet Dr. Brewster Higley, and S.P. Dinsmoor, whose quirky cement sculptures reflected his political views. At Wamego’s OZ Museum, learn how a children’s novel about a Kansas farm girl swept up in a tornado became one of the most-watched movies of all time. By the time you’re finished exploring, you’ll have volumes worth of memories to share back home.
