From the Back Cover

Enjoy a welcome change of pace and discover a world you may not know exists in your own backyard. Day Trips® describes hundreds of fascinating and exciting things to do, many free of charge and most within a two-hour drive of Kansas City.
Enjoy a steam bath or massage, then belly up to the longest mineral-water bar in the world at the Historic Hall of Waters.
Journey to the Marvelous Land of Oz Museum and explore the magic of Munchkinland, the Haunted Forest, and Emerald City.
Visit Shelter Gardens and stroll through the Garden for the Blind, a wheelchair-accessible garden with plants carefully arranged so visitors can touch and smell them.
Check out Big Brutus, an eleven-million-pound mining shovel with a dipper that is large enough to hold a wedding reception, private party, or family reunion.

Whenever I feel stressed out, I get on a two-lane highway, with this book in hand, and go to off-the-beaten path places that are great fun. Last week I went to two small towns only 30 minutes from where I live in Kansas City and shopped at antique stores, had lunch at a fabulous cafe, and got some great gifts thanks to this little guide. Indispensable. Wouldn't be without it!

This is a fun book. Everyone in the KC area should have it, whether you have children or not.

I have not read this book but I was told about it by someone on my Clinton Main Street Board. The book evidently does not include Clinton, Missouri in its data. I would like to visit with the author regarding her statistics and question her as to why Clinton, Missouri was not included in the 2-hour radius of Kansas City, MO. Clinton has recently received an award as an All America City for the year 2000. With a population of approx. 10,000 and close in proximity to Truman Lake, we have a lot to offer. We are approximately 1/2 way between KC and Springfield, as the "crow flies". I am Project Manager for Clinton Main Street and can be reached at the above email address or my phone # is 660-885-2121. I would like to invite Shifra to our community and would like her to reconsider Clinton, Missouri as a viable tourist area within a 2-hour radius of KCMO.
Thank you - Marsha Dark Project Manager Clinton Main Street PO Box 173 Clinton, MO 64735
