Destination guide

Kansas – the middle of America

With 1 foot in the Midwest and the other in the Wild West, Kansas straddles the very heart of America. It's a state that's famed for its rolling prairies, but it's also carved by gorges, filled with grassy hills and peppered with happening university towns. Kansas vacation rentals could be your ticket to the honky-tonks of Dodge or the salt museums and science centers of Hutchinson. They could also be your chance to explore the vast Great Plains and the reaches of the Flint Hills, following in the footsteps of pioneers.

Things to do

Curious museums in Kansas

Kansas isn't all grassy prairies and plains. Bag yourself Kansas vacation rentals in Dodge City to have the Boot Hill Museum on the doorstep, a place to channel your inner drifter and be immersed in cowboy saloons and Wild West buildings. There's even more spur-spinning, gun-toting action to be had in Wichita. It's home to the Old Cowtown Museum, where the honky-tonks and cattle ranches are still in action. Topeka – the capital – has the Kansas Museum of History, a spot to get an introduction to the tribes and pioneers who have shaped the state over the millennia.


Kansas is for following the frontier

There's a real sense that you're on the frontier between east and west in Kansas. As the state rolls down into the Great Plains, you'll be able to trace the footsteps of pioneers who went in search of the fabled Pacific Ocean and the promised land of California, in the west. Saddling up or strapping on the hiking boots are 2 of the top ways to do it. Other places will enthrall with their cowboy saloons and Wild West taverns, their rancher museums and horse corrals.


Find Kansas when it's warm

Summers in Kansas run from June to August, but it's not uncommon to have sultry Indian summers that extend well into fall months, like September and October. It's this period that's the most popular for travelers, who come to seek out Kansas vacation rentals in the backcountry or pads in the happening cities, when there's not so much rain. Just be aware that Kansas is smack bang in the middle of so-called Tornado Alley, which means the summer season is also prone to strong storms and twisters.

Natural features

Out on the prairie in Kansas

If there's one natural feature that really defines Kansas, it's plains. This vast cut-out of middle America is where the Midwest ends and the so-called Great Plains begin. They will run all the way to the Continental Divide and the rises of the Rockies further west, and cover vast swathes of Kansas – especially Western Kansas – in seemingly unending stretches of prairie and grassland. There are some places that are different, like the handsome gorges of the Ozarks region in the south, or the undulating Flint Hills around Wichita.
