See a buffalo up close, live like a cowboy for a day on a working cattle ranch or visit a stagecoach stop on the Sante Fe Trail are just a few of the many vacation experiences possible in this state in America’s heartland. You’ll love the wide-open spaces and the opportunities to engage in a variety of one-of-a-kind experiences in this marvelous state, which has the largest segment of true tallgrass prairie remaining in the U.S. If you want lots of space with your accommodations, consider a vacation rental instead of a smallish, staid hotel room. We have a wide selection of vacation rentals ranging from large homes with big verandas and patios to quaint cabins near wilderness settings to luxurious condominiums with amenities like swimming pools and tennis courts.
Regardless of where you visit: a major metropolitan area like Kansas City, a college town like Manhattan or Lawrence or engaging places like Wichita, Dodge City and Salina, there are a wide array of attractions and sights nearby. If you want to familiarize yourself with cowboy culture, visit the Boot Hills Museum in Dodge City, dine on all-you-can-eat barbeque and hear songs of the American Cowboy at Diamond W Chuckwagon Supper in Wichita or explore the Dickinson County Heritage Center in Abilene, which has dance halls, gaming rooms and 32 saloons. For outdoor enthusiasts who enjoy hiking, biking, fishing, bird watching and other activities, three of the state’s most popular parks are: Cheney State Park near Wichita; Scott State Park near Scott City and Tuttle Creek State Park near Manhattan.
Kansas vacation rentals for families
Kid-friendly activities are located throughout the state. Some of the most popular include the Old Cowtown Museum in Wichita, where you can take a covered wagon to a farm; the Great Wolf Lodge in Kansas City, with 8 waterslides, three pools and a four-story treehouse and the Kansas University Natural History Museum, where wildlife dioramas and dinosaur bones are the attraction. After a day of non-stop activity, wouldn’t it be great for you and your family to return to a comfortable vacation rental with a large living room, dining room and ample storage areas. A fully equipped kitchen allows you to prepare money-saving meals instead of dining out at expensive restaurants. Whether you choose to make a quick casserole for the kids or an exotic ethnic dish, your well-stocked kitchen will make it easy and convenient.
