Road Trips from Kansas City

Jump to last reply

Hi! With summer breathing down our necks, we have decided to start planning some road trips from Kansas City to explore the midwest.

My husband and I (plus another couple) would like to do 2-3 road trips this summer that would be a 4-8 hour drive from KC. We are in our mid-30's and still like the adventure of exploring new areas and hanging out with the locals. All of us have traveled extensively, but with family and job constraints, we are looking for some short 2-4 day vacations that will be easy on the pocketbooks, but still a lot of fun. We've spent the last several summers hanging out at the Lake of the Ozarks, but alas, we've sold the lake house. :-(

Does anyone have suggestions for fun/interesting places to check out in the Kansas/Missouri/Arkansas/Oklahoma/Nebraska/Iowa area?

Thanks for the suggestions and I will post trip reports on places we check out over the summer!
