There are echoes of the early settlers as you head out across the State from Kansas City, but there’s also more recent Presidential history; jaw-dropping natural and scenic beauty; and quirky, eclectic art to be enjoyed along the way. And as you cross the State line, the extravagant story of the big oil barons comes to the fore. Historic cowboy heritage and contemporary Native American culture await in Oklahoma; and of course, an exploration of the ‘Mother Road’ - Route 66 rounds it off. This Heartland States road trip is a rich tapestry interwoven with vibrant music and stunning food, and it offers a 100% authentic American experience.
Price per person includes:
Amongst the plethora of attractions are the Hallmark Visitors Center and the Mahaffie Stagecoach Stop; art venues including Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art and Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art; the American Jazz Museum and the Arabia Steamboat Museum.

Barely 40 miles west of Kansas City, the college town of Lawrence is a smart, lively and growing community of 80,000 and home to the University of Kansas campus and the Haskell Indian Nations University. Downtown, the half dozen blocks of Massachusetts Street are replete with chic boutiques and quirky antique stores; intriguing galleries and surprising studios; micro-breweries, restaurants and cafes.
