I love to tell people about all of the special – and surprising – things to see and do in Kansas. Our new TravelKS Blog offers another way to do just that: share even more personal perspectives on our state’s exciting events, natural wonders, cultural venues, and great places to eat, explore and enjoy. [[endteaser]]

Several times a week our blog team – made up of writers, photographers and foodies who are passionate about Kansas – will cover everything from popular family attractions and historical hotspots to mouth-watering recipes from Kansas restaurants. Each month will focus on a theme, including seasonal activities, holiday happenings and sights you won’t want to miss in specific regions of the state. Plus, we’ll spotlight breweries and wineries, scenic byways, amusement parks and zoos, and the best places for hiking, hunting and fishing.

We hope you enjoy our blog’s personal stories about living and vacationing in Kansas – and that you’ll share your ideas and insights with us. Happy travels!
