I’ve always loved traveling in small-town Kansas. With gas prices soaring, Wichitans might want to consider some day trips closer to home for their summer vacations. For some fun ideas, check out this online guide to offbeat tourist attractions, which includes several little-known Kansas destinations, including the World’s Largest Easel and Van Gogh painting in Goodland, the Safari Museum in Chanute and, closer to home, the Vornado Fan Museum in Andover and the giant Muffler Man statue on South Broadway here in Wichita (look at the fascinating national listing of these mysterious, Easter Island-like Muffler Men).
Kansas adventurers should also consult the Kansas Sampler site and watch for its upcoming release (slated for this summer) of the Kansas Guidebook for Explorers, which will cover every one of the 626 incorporated towns in Kansas.
