Happy National Kansas Day

Updated: Apr 6, 2021

If we're being honest, I have never been to #kansas, but its actually been on our list of #domestic #travel dreams for a few years.

What? Dreams? Kansas? What are you a Wizard of Oz fan?

Well, yes, but that's not the entire reason.

The primary reason is a super-nerd desire to visit every presidential library and Dwight "I Like Ike" Eisenhower's museum is in #abilene.

But no one just goes to Abeline, so I actually spent some time crafting a #presidental #museum tour that starts in Kansas City (the Missouri one) for a visit to the #Truman museum, and then a road trip through the open plains, via #topeka and the Kansas Museum of History to learn a little #comanche history before reaching Abilene.

Might not sound as alluring as Lake Como in the Spring, but let us never forget there are amazing things to see right here in our own US of A. SO thanks Kansas, you big flat fly-over state, for reminding us that there are things to do, even in the middle of the country!
