Welcome to Kansas

There's a simple beauty to the green rolling hills and limitless horizons. Places such as Chase County beguile those who value understatement. Gems abound, from the superb space museum in Hutchinson to the indie music clubs of Lawrence. Most importantly, follow the Great Plains credo of ditching the interstate for the two-laners and make your own discoveries. The website www.kansassampler.org is a brilliant resource.

They went to the Kansas Pacific Railway, where their cattle would be loaded for market. Fort Worth was the locale where supplies, rest and entertainment could be enjoyed at what came to be known as 'Hell’s Half Acre'. Before departing for Chisholm Trail and traversing the Red River into wild, untamed territory inhabited by Indians, cattle drovers stopped to enjoy what only the entertainment district of Fort Worth could provide. Millions of longhorn cattle were moved through Fort Worth between 1866 and 1890. The history of these cattle drives may be discovered by visiting Cattle Drive Visitors Center, Stockyard Station, Horse and Mule Barn and Livery, Cow Town Museum, the Livestock Exchange, Billy Bob’s, and many other historical adventures along the way.Return to your original departure point at the end of the tour around 5pm.

Kansas City Indoor Skydiving Experience

Arrive at iFLY Kansas City, and get started by putting on your gear and going through a specialized training session from an expert flight instructor. You’ll learn how to safely float in an 800-horsepower vertical wind tunnel that generates a wall-to-wall cushion of air - commonly used by professional skydivers - without having to jump from a plane. Just about anyone can fly, and no experience is necessary.Once you're inside the enclosed space of the flight chamber, a tunnel operator slowly increases the wind speed until you and your instructor are airborne. Feel the adrenaline rush as you float at wind speeds reaching 130 to 175 mph (209 to 282 kph). The stable wall-to-wall airflow keeps you from falling off the column of air, and your instructor is on hand at all times to guide you.The entire indoor skydiving experience takes about 75 minutes from start to finish. Each session includes up to six people, but you fly one-on-one with your instructor for 60 seconds in the wind tunnel twice.

History Tour of Pythian Castle in Springfield Missouri

The tour begins with 6-minute video history, then proceeds through the rest of the main floor covering the lobby, the ballroom and buffet rooms, weaving stories of former orphans, military and the castle's current uses. Proceed to the basement to see WWII POW cells, gargoyles, a dungeon and its modern guard. The tour then heads to the second floor to the theater where some rather amusing current history is told. The tour then proceeds to the historic sleeping rooms and finishes in the highest point of the castle, the tower room. While quite a modest castle in terms of cost to build, visitors find the non-traditional history fascinating. It says history, but it is designed to entertain kids as well. There are stairs, so you will get your exercise, with a few resting spots along the way. Wheelchair accessibility is main floor only.
