About Kansas Bucket List

The Kansas Bucket List is here!

From Kansas' Tallgrass Prairie to Alcove Springs Park; Boot Hill Museum in Dodge City to chicken cuisine in Pittsbug; the Gypsum Hills to the Amelia Earhart Festival-these are just a few of the amazing experiences on Kansans' bucket lists.

What's amazing is that 70 spots aren't enough for all the unique, ineresting, beautiful, fun experiences the state has to offer. Nevertheless, it's a good start for those of you who want to dive into special parts of Kansas. Check out the Kansas Bucket List.
