Get Away

About an hour from Kansas City, far enough away to take a deep breath and relax

Historic Fort Scott – it’s a little quieter than in the city. Take our word for it – a weekend road trip to a charming Southeast Kansas town is the perfect getaway! And when we say getaway we mean it… getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city, getaway from the overly crowded restaurants and shops, getaway to a quaint rural town for a one-of-a-kind adventure! Roam the roads to Fort Scott, Kansas, where the western frontier began!
