Begin your tour in Wilson, the Czech Capitol of Kansas. Check out the limestone architecture of the restored Midland Hotel.
At the I-70 interchange with K-232, drop in at the Kansas Originals Market to shop for Kansas-made products. Continue north on the byway to Wilson Lake as you wind through the Smoky Hills on the route.
Stop at the turnout on the east end of the Wilson Lake Dam and read the informational sign that tells about the area history and when the dam was built. At the west end of the dam is the Scenic Byway Kiosk with all there is to see and do in the area.
Travel north to Lucas where homemade Czech bologna and smoked meats are available at Brant's Market. The Garden of Eden in Lucas is an excellent example of grassroots or primitive art. The Grassroots Art Center includes more work by self-taught primitive artists. The Art Center's courtyard presents fine examples of limestone used for architectural purposes.Don't miss the heritage mural on the north side of the grocery store, the World's Largest Travel Plate on K-18 highway on the east side of Lucas, Bowl Plaza, the only public restroom covered in "bling", and the World's Largest Things just south of the Garden of Eden.
