What's the matter with Kansas? For travelers, darn little! It mixes grasslands with rolling hills, farm country with cities like Wichita, Topeka, and Lawrence (this last with an active cultural scene). History, wineries, great outdoors, more.

Eisenhower home in Abiline one of top USA presidential sites

I'll say upfront, I'm horrified by the nightmare my country has just let itself in for,  wincing at the massive damage we're going to be taking over the next four (and hopefully only four) years. So it's all the more worth noting that given the outsize world influence of this country’s chief executive, travellers seeking insights into both U.S. and world history will find intriguing and often first-hand information at the libraries, homes, and other sites dedicated to the various presidents and…

  • Admittedly, not the most exciting city for public transit but the one I have the most recent experience with...check out our new Transit Report for Kansas City today on The World on Wheels: http://tinyurl.com/2a4phtt
