Being from Oklahoma, I frequently visited Kansas. I have been to Topeka, Kansas City, Wichita and so many little cities in between. I have driven through the cornfields, visited friends on farms, milked and drank goats milk, attended a wedding in a town with no stoplight and smelled the slaughter houses as we drove through Dodge City on our way to Colorado. 

Going through Kansas soon? If not by car, you can travel there by way of your computer! Check out these resources. :: www.homeschoolgiveaways.com

 

Although, not everything in Kansas is picturesque, however, it has beautiful sunsets and wide open spaces for solitude and reflection. You can also take a trip to Kansas City for tons of shopping opportunities, atmosphere and a dose of city life. Or plan a trip to Worlds of Fun and Oceans of Fun with a group of friends! Learn more about the state of Kansas with these great resources. Each state has a history, fun facts and wonderful sites to see. Over the next year, I will be sharing resources – printables, travel destinations and food favorites – from each state.
