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/ Seeing new things at old favorites in Wichita http://www.travelks.com/blog/post/2011/15/Seeing-new-things-at-old-favorites-in-Wichita/608/ This summer is the perfect time to visit Wichita. Two of the area’s biggest family attractions are at their best in the summer months, making Taw-town a great weekend destination. We used to live in Wichita, but that was before kids. Now, when we take the family back to visit Grandma and Grandpa I really appreciate the wide variety of fun things we can all enjoy while we’re there. For nice weather months, I highly recommend the Sedgwick County Zoo and Botanica – Wichita’s botanical gardens. On a recent trip, we took Grandma to Botanica in the morning and went to the zoo later in the day with Daddy.
