They pack their own bags, read their own maps. They can live for days on PB&J sandwiches from a cooler – and they can tell you more about Kansas geography, history and culture than most. However, we’re not so far removed from screaming car seat journeys that I can’t recall the urgency with which we sang “The Wheels of the Bus” for the fortieth time. Traveling with kids brings its own special brand of joy and wonderment, but it can be challenging. With a little extra consideration, you can fine-tune your family adventure to meet the interests of your own young ones. The southern region of Kansas’ Central Prairie is the perfect place to begin your own family adventure, offering opportunities for varying interests and ages with kid-friendly accommodations and fun food options.  Fri, 21 Nov 2014 07:00:00 GMT http://www.travelks.com/blog/post/2014/21/Family-friendly-Road-Trip/3107/ Star Wars® Exhibit, Keeper of the Plains Unique to Wichita http://www.travelks.com/blog/post/2012/15/Star-Wars-Exhibit-Keeper-of-the-Plains-Unique-to-Wichita/2025/ May the Force be with you while exploring Star Wars®: Where Science Meets Imagination at Exploration Place in Wichita. Peer into the future through this blockbuster exhibit focusing on the Star Wars film series that became a worldwide pop culture phenomenon. Fans will enjoy artifacts from all six films while those interested in the science behind the fantasy technologies and how it relates to today’s world also will have plenty to see and do. You don’t want to miss this national traveling exhibit from May 25 to Sept. 3 because once it leaves Wichita, it will be displayed in cities so far, far away they might as well be in another galaxy.
