Travel Kansas 2019 leads the way

Travel Kansas 2019

The new edition of Travel Kansas magazine offers a sneak peak at the dramatic rock formations known as Little Jerusalem which this year will open to the public for the first time. 

You’ll also learn about the country’s second national water trail — the Kansas River — as well as the newly established African American History Trail, the expansion at Eisenhower Museum, and the unearthing of a prehistoric civilization in south-central Kansas.

And if you’ve ever wondered where veteran Kansas journalist and traveler Beccy Tanner most likes to visit, you’ll find it here.

If you’d like a print copy to take along on your travels, the magazines are given away at airports and travel centers or may be purchased at Watermark Books or Barnes & Noble in Wichita.

Bike Share ICT

Bike Share ICT locations expand

The bike share program started in 2017 proved so popular that the number of places to pick up bikes has doubled.

Dozens of new stations have been added at locations including the Advanced Learning Library, Riverside Park, Clifton Square, Great Plains Nature Center, OJ Watson Park, Sedgwick County Zoo, and Wichita Art Museum. 

The program started with 100 cruiser bikes at 19 stations throughout downtown. The bikes, which are provided by Zagster, rent for $3 per hour or an annual membership of $30 ($20 for students).  Download the app or get more info at bikeshareict.com.

While it’s a trip down memory lane for parents, children also delight in trying to draw on the world’s largest Etch-A-Sketch or playing vintage video arcade games. Visitors to Exploration Place’s Toytopia traveling exhibit can also tour a life-size doll house, build a fort, experiment with LEGOs, and learn how toys are made and which ones were most popular every decade. The exhibit is included with general admission and is on display until Jan. 1, 2019.
