North Central Kansas was reviewed last week. I will showcase Iowa highlights this week. It was a great weekend, albeit speedy, in Iowa! Below is the original post that kicked off my Great Plains “off the beaten path” reviews. We have only just begun with Kansas and Iowa. Stay tuned, more to come!
I use the phrase, “off the beaten path” often. I value the adventure of discovery. I enjoy finding new, seldom explored areas. I venture away from the norm and I love sharing my explorations with anyone who will listen to my exuberance.
I am a native Nebraskan. I have lived in this state my whole life. It is a perfect location for this wandering traveler. I am centrally located in the United States, I enjoy white Christmases and hot summers, that remind me of my love of winter. The cost of living in Nebraska is low, owning an acreage is a reasonable goal. I have wide open vistas in my backyard, trees that tower over my neighborhood and history that is as boundless as the open skies above us.
I feel The Great Plains are the most overlooked travel destination in the continental US. It is my favorite “off the beaten path” area. For the next few weeks I will be highlighting some of my top picks for fun travel adventures in Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, South Dakota and Colorado. I hope to share with you insights to unexplored or seldom explored areas with the intention of sparking travel desires for you. Most of the highlights will also be sneak peeks of 2015 for Soul Experiences. So if have not traveled with us yet or haven’t traveled with a group, this may be the preview you need to embrace a new form of traveling. Come along with us as we search The Great Plains and beyond for “off the beaten path” journeys.
