Day Trips from Kansas City

By Lisa Waterman Gray

While the Kansas City metropolitan area offers entertainment to suit every age and taste, there's nothing like a road trip for a fresh perspective and new adventures. These four towns are well worth exploring and located within an hour's drive of Kansas City, MO.

History and Hauntings – Atchison, KS

Atchison Kansas_001_LA.jpgNamed one of the nation's most haunted places, Atchison is a hilly city in northeast Kansas. Ask about a haunted tour on the Atchison Trolley, or visit the Victorian Evah C. Cray Historical Home Museum, filled with period furnishings, where ghosts have tinkered with media room videotape and speakers.

The spirit of Atchison's favorite daughter, Amelia Earhart, lives on at the 1860 Amelia Earhart Birthplace, located atop a gorgeous bluff near the Missouri River, and in artist Stan Herd's “crop portrait” of the aviator at Amelia Earhart Earthworks at Warnock Lake. You'll also find a stone marker in the adjacent International Forest of Friendship, with etched portraits of the Columbia space shuttle crew.

Atchison offers a lovely and spirited step back in time. Find out more

Arrow Rock, Missouri

Type: Area Destinations / Day Trips | Location: East

Photo of Arrow Rock, Missouri

In 1829, the town of Arrow Rock was founded on the bluff above the ferry crossing. Its situation on the Missouri River and Santa Fe Trail meant that large numbers of travelers heading west passed through the town. In 1834, Joseph Huston, a native of Virginia, began construction of a two-story brick structure known today as the Old Tavern. By 1860, Arrow Rock had become Saline County’s most important river port, with a population of more than 1,000. Nearly half that number were African-Americans. The stone gutters on Main Street, the Old Tavern and other early structures remain as a monument to the labor these immigrants from the upper South provided in building the town. National Historic Landmark Village, State Historic Site, camping, bed & breakfasts, professional theatre, dining, shopping. Historic tours of 19th century Missouri River town on the Lewis & Clark and Santa Fe Trails. Children's Education Programs. Open Apr.-Oct. by advance reservation....

Lecompton Historical Society

Type: Area Destinations / Day Trips | Location: Regional

Photo of Lecompton Historical Society

Visit Historic Lecompton -- "Birthplace of the Civil War, Where Slavery Began to Die." Lecompton -- located one hour west of Kansas City, just off I-70 -- was the official Territorial Capital of Kansas from 1855 to 1861. Nine Kansas territorial governors called Lecompton home. A tour includes a visit to Constitution Hall -- a National Landmark, Kansas Historic Site and Finalist for the 8 Wonders of Kansas. It was the site of the writing of the famous Lecompton Constitution. This pro-slavery constitution sparked a chain of events that divided the nation and eventually climaxed into the U. S. Civil War. It was endorsed by President Buchanan, passed the U.S. Senate (33 to 25) but was rejected by the U.S. House of Representatives (120 to 112). The Constitution is mentioned 51 times during the Lincoln-Douglas Debates. The controversy split the Democratic Party, leading the election of President Lincoln. The Territorial Capital Museum was originally planned to be the Kansas Capitol Building. Construction began in 1855 but was abandoned in 1857 when it became apparent the Capital would be elsewhere. This historic building was completed in 1882 as Lane University. It was the site of the wedding of President Eisenhower’s parents while students at Lane in 1885. The building is presently a museum containing three floors of Civil War, Lane University, Eisenhower, Victorian and Lecompton artifacts. See also the 1850’s Territorial Democratic Headquarters. This native stone building originally contained a log cabin addition on the west side. You will be glad you visited Lecompton. ...
