Dorothy may not be in Kansas anymore, but we’re sure happy we are!
Though we all see the same sun every day, sunrise and sunset look different depending on where we are. In Kansas, they’re spectacular, and it feels like you’re on a different planet staring at a different horizon. The passion for RVing is in experiencing different lives, customs, and places wherever you stabilize your RV. In Kansas, the experiences are just as amazing as that horizon you’ll gaze upon lovingly every evening. There’s a great mix of city and nature for you to love, and if you enjoy sunflowers, then visit the state they call home!
Unique atmospheres, colors, and whimsy
Nutterville is a nearly secret neighborhood in Kansas City that should be on your list of interesting destinations. Houses festooned with vibrant colors, a multitude of flowers, and eccentric shops make this neighborhood unlike any other in the U.S. Stepping onto the sidewalks is like being transported to a fairy-tale city where little makes sense, but it’s all woven together in a beautiful tapestry of amazing experiences.
Where one of aviation’s greatest mysteries was born
While no one knows where Amelia Earhart ended up, we can explore where she was born. The Amelia Earhart Birthplace Museum in Atchison may be one of the only places left on Earth where we can learn so much about the aviator. While she may not have lived there permanently, the now-museum was where her heart lived throughout her life. When you visit, you can explore the numerous parlors, butler’s pantry, original kitchen, and dining rooms. There are many interesting items and historical moments on display in the home. If you’re interested in history, make this museum your top priority.
A haunted sinkhole
Are you looking for chills? Kansas is serving them up at St. Jacob’s Well. The sinkhole is said to be the bottomless watery grave of unsuspecting visitors who got a little too close to the edge. It’s a place where fish with no eyes have allegedly been seen and where a spectral cowboy was once sighted, screaming his unearthly cry to the inky heavens above. While many of these stories have been disproven, who knows when the cowboy will return? Maybe it will happen on your visit!
Stonehenge of the U.S.
You wouldn’t believe that these monuments were carved from nature itself, but that’s just what happened at Monument Rocks. Given that they’re such an artistic expression of nature, you may be surprised to find out that no human has manipulated these stones. Millions of years ago, this natural formation was underwater, and to this day you can see the fossils of long-dead creatures embedded in the rocks all around you.
A copper dome tour
If you love learning the history of where you visit, the one place in Kansas you’ll find it is the Kansas state capitol. Make sure you have your sneakers ready because there are no elevators here, and there are a lot of stairs to climb as you travel through the history of Kansas. The famous copper dome was built in the 1800s, and there are tours every day that let you get up close and personal with the monument. The museum and store are also open for you to take a walk down memory lane and fill your head with all the neat events and laws that make up this amazing state.
Fishing and camping in Kansas
Cheney State Park is nearly 2,000 acres of wilderness. There are cabins to rent as well as hookup campsites for your RV. The range of fish you can catch is plentiful, and there’s access to one of the most popular sailing destinations in the U.S. Hiking gives you a great view of the landscape, and swimming is abundant in the state park. If you prefer your hunting on dry land, you’re welcome to do it at Cheney in addition to nature watching in their wildlife area. Photography is encouraged!
