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/ Top 10 things our family learned at the Hedrick Exotic Animal Farm Bed and Breakfast http://www.travelks.com/blog/post/2012/11/Top-10-things-our-family-learned-at-the-Hedrick-Exotic-Animal-Farm-Bed-and-Breakfast/2949/ 1.      African porcupines like bananas. 2.      Camels are really soft and fuzzy and they like to nuzzle. ...
