National Parks in Kansas are primarily hiking trails that cross the country such as the Oregon Trail, Santa Fe, Pony Express, etc.   However you may want to take the 1.5 hour bus ride through Tallgrass Prairie Park in Strong City and enjoy some fishing on a relaxing afternoon.

Outdoor Festivals are pretty common in Kansas and you can easily tie one of them into your road trip adventure.  Wichita is home to the "Wichita River Festival" and that is a great activity for the entire family.

Wineries in Kansas attract thousands of visitors each year and the various wines that they produce are world-class.  They use locally grown grapes and fruits and produce over 50,000 gallons of wine each year.  These wineries rival the Finger Lakes wineries in New York and California's Napa Valley.

Horse Tracks

Anthony Downs in Anthony has a race every fifteen minutes and will alternate between horse and greyhound races.  This gives you lots of great betting opportunities while sitting in the wide open grand stands.

Eureka Downs is located in Eureka and is worth a visit to check out a race or two.

Joyland which is located in Wichita and is a family oriented park with bumper cars, water rides, and lots of great thrill rides.  However if your craving the monster roller coasters found at Cedar Point or Busch Gardens then you are going to be disappointed.
