Fun in My Backyard

On this trip, my family’s third Faces & Places Tour as a Roadie, we were excited to go on a trip closer to our home. I think that’s what I’ve enjoyed most about the 2011 Faces & Places Tour –discovering amazing attractions and fun “right in my own backyard,” whether that be a trip across town on a Thursday evening, or a weekend getaway down the Kansas Byways to the other side of the state.

150 Things I Love About Kansas Exhibit

Kansas Centennial Items

If you thought you knew what you loved about Kansas, it’s time to take another look.The Kansas History Museum in Topeka is featuring “150 Things I Love About Kansas” as a special exhibit in conjunction with the state’s 2011 sesquicentennial celebration. The display of ordinary items (a pair of overalls made in Kansas and worn by a Kansas farmer) mixes with the extraordinary (the first known photo of a tornado from 1884) to inspire visitors to think about the variety of unique people, places and things that make Kansas a place to celebrate.
