Visitors are surprised by what Kansas has to offer

“That’s in Kansas?” may be the most common phrase heard at the Goodland Travel Information Center.

With summer just around the corner, center manager Mona Carver and her staff are gearing up for what is their busiest time of the year. Carver said visits to the center peak in July and may average between 700 and 1,000 visitors per day. Visitors can get maps, directors and brochures about attractions, and also work with the travel counselors to plan their visit in Kansas and make accommodations.

Carver said most visitors are surprised by all that Kansas has to offer, especially the Eisenhower Center and Monument Rocks. She noted most people don’t realize Eisenhower was from Kansas.

The center is open year-round except New Year’s Day, Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Free coffee and tea are always available!

Hours of Operation: 
May 15 through September 15 - 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
September 16 through May 14 - 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
