The Hidden Wonders of Rolling Hills Zoo

A trip to Salina, Kansas takes about 2 1/2 hours from the Kansas City metro, and it will put you almost half way across the state. About 10 miles farther, and you will find something you would never expect out here. About 2 miles south of I-70, at exit 244, you will come upon the Rolling Hills Zoo. What started as a horse farm in the early 1980’s, has blossomed into a zoological park that now boasts over 100 species. We were pleasantly surprised with our visit to this rural park.Continue reading

Perfect Presentation at Pierpont’s Restaurant

Pierpont’s Restaurant is a premier seafood and steak house located in Kansas City’s Union Station. A visit to this restaurant is like a step back in time to when the station was built in 1914. The architecture is awe-inspiring, and there are many hidden gems tucked inside. The expectations for a dinner at this type of establishment are high. We were sure we would not be disappointed.Continue reading

South by Southwest – Rocky Mountain Road Trip Part 3

Our Rocky Mountain Road Trip had us leaving Yellowstone Park after just a couple of days. We felt as though we barely scratched the surface of what there is to see. We made a note to ourselves that there would have to be a return trip at some time in the future. For now we aimed our car South by Southwest toward Grand Teton National Park. The rolling hills welcomed us, as we barreled down the highway. Soon we caught our first glimpse of the majestic mountain range.Continue reading

The red and white airplane is a reverse color scheme to the standard TWA airliners.

Up Up And Away to the TWA Museum

UPDATE*

Unfortunately, the owner of the Wings of Pride MD-83 airplane have decided to withdraw it from the tarmac, so visitors can no longer tour it. On a positive note, the museum has opened two new rooms to help with the overabundance of artifacts. 

Let’s see a show of hands of the people who knew there is a TWA Museum in downtown Kansas City, Missouri. Well it looks like some of you knew, but this was a surprise for us. We made a stop in on a Saturday morning to check it out. Located at 10 Richards Road, in the Charles B. Wheeler Airport, this unique museum highlights the 75 year lifespan of the airline. Feel free to visit them on Tuesday through Saturdays. They are open from 10:00 to 4:00 each of those days, but double-check if the weather is especially bad.Continue reading

Fried Delights at City Fish and More

If you wander into City Fish and More, at 2704 State Avenue in Kansas City, Kansas, you will find exactly what their name implies. Quite often you will hear the experts touting the health benefits of eating fish. I’m not certain that deep fried versions are just as healthy, but they are certainly delicious. Continue reading
