Experience the Many Things to Do in Northwest Kansas

Whether your interest is in history, hunting, hiking or family-friendly entertainment, you'll find it in Northwest Kansas. If you are an outdoors enthusiast head for the Webster Reservoir, State Park and Wildlife Area near Stockton. Go fishing, swimming, boating and waterskiing in the reservoir, hike through their scenic trail system or hunt in the wildlife area. If the idea of hiking sounds too good to pass up, consider visiting the stunning Arikaree Breaks in the northernmost area of Cheyenne County.

Speaking of amazing views, visitors to the region will want to take a trip up to Mount Sunflower, the highest point in the Sunflower State. And if audio tours sound appealing, take the Beaver Creek tour to enjoy the scenery, spot the wildlife, and discover the history and notable structures in the area.

The Nicodemus National Historic Site continues to draw the crowds. Built by freed slaves in 1877, this African-American community was one of the first built and the only one that remains west of the Mississippi.  Visitors also flock to the St. Francis Motorcycle Museum, The High Plains Museum in Goodland (home to America's first patented helicopter) and the thrilling Sternberg Museum of Natural History.
