Now is a great time to explore natural areas near us here in Wichita by taking a nice scenic drive with the family. Over the past couple of years, we’ve been writing about fantastic places to see in our Kansas Road Trips series. I thought it would be a good time to reshare these since gas is so cheap and taking a country drive is good entertainment.
…Just remember that it was a different time when we wrote them! Visitors Centers and other buildings may not be open right now. You might find other information that doesn’t apply at this time. You might have to modify your plans to ensure that you’re following recommended best practices for social distancing, but if there’s one thing Kansas has, it’s room to spread out.
Short trips will be easier to manage so you don’t have to make any stops along the way.
Before you go anywhere, make sure you read Emily’s “Kansas Road Trip Travel Essentials” for a list of very good ideas that will make the difference between a great trip and a fiasco. 🙂 You’ll be glad you did!
Since writing the articles below, we’ve visited even more awesome natural areas and will be adding to this list soon. What are your favorite scenic drives near Wichita? Please share them with us in the comments.
