One of Kat and I’s goals is to visit each of the counties in Kansas. Â Why? Â Well… because we can.
Together we’ve visited something like 25 of the 105 counties in Kansas (independently, we’ve both visited more than
that,Â Â we’re only counting things we’ve visited together.) Â So, what is there to see in each of these counties? Â The Wichita Eagle has kindly put together a map of one thing to see in each county.
Some of these might be a stretch when it comes to being something worth seeing. Â For instance, the museum of Also Ran’s in Norton county. Â Yes, you can be amazed by those who ran for U.S. President and lost.
Some of the other entries really are worth seeing. Â For instance, Monument Rocks in Gove County is worth checking out if you’re passing through (I wouldn’t exactly make it a destination) – it’s a little harder to find than one would expect for a geological feature (it doesn’t say it in the article, but it’s in someone’s field the last time I was there – and for s while, you’re sure you are lost – you approach the feature from the back side.)
The list also has some spots that already appear in the 8 Wonders of Kansas list, which is not a bad thing, but overall most of the list is composed of smaller, less seen items in Kansas, which I rather like, rather than focusing on the bigger attractions. Â Of course, some counties, like Greeley, have pretty small population bases (1,200 for the entire county of Greeley), so there’s not a whole lot of tourist stops anyway 🙂
