Located in the heart of the Midwest, you may think of the state as being nothing more than flat land, prairies and plains, but there are a number of interesting things to see and do here. From major NASCAR events held in buzzing Kansas City, to quiet botanical gardens in Wichita, there are a variety of nature-based and historical attractions to see across the state. Hope in your rental car and get ready to experience up-close of what makes up America's heartland.
