Itinerary #6: Oklahoma, Kansas and Nebraska

“Is there enough to see and do in ‘boring’ states?” I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been asked this question, so let me set the record straight, once and for all—there is no such thing as a boring state! Every state has something unique and interesting to offer. Case in point: Nebraska, Kansas, and Oklahoma. While most folks would not put these destinations on their must-see list, I hope that after reading my post, you will be inspired to visit and take away what we did. From the Oklahoma City Bombing Memorial, to the schoolhouse that was the backdrop for “Brown vs. the Board of Education of Topeka,” to Boys Town in Omaha—the whole experience was memorable and left an indelible mark on all of us. Couple that with fields of corn, wheat, and soybeans that stretch as far as the eye can see, and you start to get a picture of the true heart of America.

On this trip, we were accompanied by another single mom and her three kids who were also classmates of my children. Mona was a sweet and loving mom who had just left a difficult marriage. Her kids were a little rambunctious, but I have no doubt that they learned much on the trip that they will never forget. I am glad they had the opportunity to travel with us.

Are you ready to hit the road? Let’s go to the heartland!
