Safe Places to Travel – Would you believe Northwest Kansas?

Would you believe there are actually interesting things to see and do in this safe, isolated, underpopulated part of Kansas?

Kansas has the rap of being a flat, uninteresting state but in this blog post and one to come, I will show you that’s just not true. You know the jokes:

People come from miles around to eat at Big Ed’s Steakhouse in Bird City. The steakhouse was voted #4 on the list of best mouthwatering steak houses in Kansas.

You can find more information at:

Don’t Forget to Check the Weather We do get severe weather, especially in the summertime.

We have one of the lowest crime rates in Kansas. People here still leave their doors unlocked, keys in the car, and walk at night. Children and run and play all over town without supervision (everybody keeps an eye on them). I think the biggest danger around here is running across a skunk in your way.

If you live anywhere within a day’s drive of Northwestern Kansas it is worth the time to come and visit this slice of America. It’s like it used to be 40 years ago. And a big plus: No Traffic!
