Old Cowtown

Hats, Boots & Spurs Yellow Brick Road Trip

Get Along Little Dogies...

The larger-than-life cowboy legends of the Old West were born on the frontier plains and in the cattle towns of Kansas. Wichita grew from a cattle town to the largest city in the state and few towns capture the spirit of the American cowboy like Dodge City. The Old West still lives in Kansas as we keep the cowboy culture alive year-round!
