Somehow I managed to miss a Kansas travel story by “the frugal traveler” in the paper version of the New York Times Travel section a few weeks ago but I did spot the ipad version. Frugal Traveler visits Kansas.
The story includes many places familiar to people like me who are familiar with Kansas (Flint Hills, Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve, Strong City, Cottonwood Falls, Council Grove, Pittsburg). But it also mentions several (see below) that I need to check out during my next visit(s). Curious to see what the frugal traveler makes of my current home state – Iowa (which apparently was his next stop after Kansas.)
In Pittsburg: Gebhardt Chicken Dinners (and the better-advertised Chicken Annie’s and Chicken Mary’s)
In Chanute: the Martin and Osa Johnson Safari Museum (safarimuseum.com)
In Strong City: Ad Astra, a locavore-ish, vegetarian-friendly restaurant and bar
