Along tranquil hills and rolling roads, sometimes the journey is the destination. The Glacial Hills Scenic Byway is a route that passes through landscapes created by time, wind, rain, and ancient glaciers. Each season becomes a time capsule highlighting this landscape hewn by time. With the transition from picturesque green hills in spring to being framed by vibrant foliage in autumn, this route is one you’ll want to view over and over again.

Frontier Military Historic Byway

From Civil War skirmishes to logistical hurdles, the path to freedom is not an easy one.  The Frontier Military Historic Byway follows a 19th-century trail used by the Army to transport soldiers and supplies across eastern Kansas, but don’t be fooled into thinking that the history here is long gone.

When you’re here, you’ve woven yourself into history.
