Any ideas for good "weekend away" trips from Kansas - walking, historical, romantic, sightseeing ... 2-3 hr drive, overnight in a nice place
Depends on what you like. As far as history goes, I'd say you should visit Dodge City. They have a pretty interesting museum. It is not a place I would stay for very long though. One night is enough, then as they say: Get the Hell out of Dodge. about 7 years ago
Taking my daughter on colleges tour. We have 2 free days in Boston. What recommendations for sights and great dining?
You should definetely walk the Freedom Trail, which is a historic trail that takes you to some of the places our founding fathers lived and died. Spend the good part of a day at the Boston Common, a beautiful park in the centre of Boston (The oldest park in the US). And seeing as it is a college tour I would take some time to get her potential neighbourhood. about 7 years ago
In general you would not need to get tickets in advance, unless it's a big event. about 7 years ago
