    And just when you might be...

    by la_beba Written Aug 26, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: And just when you might be thinking there is nothing to see when driving ‘round Kansas.... you'll discover there's so many cute, unbelievably beautiful scenes!!!!! Stopped the car.... everything was so green and sunny..... it was a shock!! Mellowness flooded me. The road was smooth, and the car glided over it. Ditches sported 4' tall, creamy, ruby-throated wild hibiscus.... all I could see around was lightly-grazed tall-grass prairie.... remnants and planted grasslands of similar structure that have become increasingly rare as old-fields in the northeastern U.S. succeed to forests..... but here, in the mid west.... it's still found, and I love the look of it, and it makes for some great photography.... silly me though, of course.... went for the 'swimming in tall grass surfer type of shot' :o) LOL
    Hey.... I did wonder however... if at any time, a tornado/twister could hit and swoop me away!!!! after all, this is Wizard of Oz's Dorothy town!!!! ;o) and so think about it!!!!! a state where there's possibility of twisters can't be boring!!!! can't it?

  • Take in the Cosmosphere in...

    Favorite thing: Take in the Cosmosphere in Hutchinson! It may be a bit of a tourist trap, but who isn't interested in space travel? Also, catch a flick the newly restored Fox Theatre -- it's a blast from the past! There are also a lot of antique shops which hold lots of interesting trinkets.'Make-out Point' in the state's capital, Topeka, is great. I loved seeing all of the city lights from a high wooded area! The unique shops, and especially FAO Schwartz toy store in Kansas City are plentiful and the people are friendly. Witchita is a city whose people speak for themselves.

    Fondest memory: What I miss most from Hutchinson is Carey Park, with its river, which is surprisingly shallow but has an incredibly strong current. My roommates and I would often grab our air mattresses and indulge in an afternoon float through the city on this river. I also miss the frequent day trips we would take to Witchita to take in a concert, movie, or just go shopping.

    Favorite thing: Go to Aggieville in Manhatten and cruise! It might appear strange to the outsider, but it is a blast and you will meet lots of interesting people.

    Fondest memory: The fantastic thunder storms dancing across a storm darkened sky.

    Favorite thing: Visit the largest lake in Kansas and the Fishing Capital of Kansas - Milford Lake. You'll find so many fish in the lake that all you have to do is to yell for them to jump in your boat! Great fishing for bank anglers as well as boat anglers. Besides fishing, the KS Fish Hatchery and Nature Center is located at the lake.Once you catch your limit, visit nearby JUnction City and Fort Riley. From visiting Gen. Custer's house, Atomic Cannon, U.S. calvary Museum, Buffalo Soldier Memorial - you'll find a big list of FREE things to do.

    Favorite thing: I liked Kansas because it's so different from Rhode Island (which is where I live), so I would take people out to the western part of the state to see country like that in my pictures.

    Fondest memory: The wheat fields impressed me...miles and miles and miles.

    Favorite thing: Stop and stay a while and enjoy what the state has to offer. Kansas is kid friendly and every town has a park or a play ground.

    Fondest memory: If I had to name a most friendly state, it is definitely Kansas. When crossing this state, we were often invited into people's home for dinner and for a nice, soft bed. Thanks Kansas people.
