Valerie's Gifts & Such is found along the Flint Hills National Scenic Byway. This unique byway offers incredible views of the native grasses and flowers of the tallgrass prairie - one of the last remaining such landscapes left in the world. Much of the land along the Byway looks as it did thousands of years ago when the Kaw, Osage and other native tribes lived here. You will also find towns filled with charming shops, restaurants, artwork, and antiques. Take a look at the other sights you can see along the Flint Hills National Scenic Byway here.
This spot is located in the Flint Hills Designated Scenic Region. Soaring and diving from hilltop to valley along one of the quiet country highways through the Flint Hills will quickly challenge your notions of prairie. Flat? Not here. Empty? Not if you look closely. The continent's largest remaining tract of tallgrass is also one of America's unique places, harboring a wealth of adventure, beauty, and history. The region's sweeping horizons and carpets of wildflowers captivate artists and enchant visitors. Learn more here.
