    See Apollo 13 At The Cosmosphere

    From Redditor u/I_Am_TheMachine:

    Abilene has the Eisenhower museum. Hutchinson has the Cosmosphere, google the hours before driving there. The cosmosphere has apollo 13 and really good interpretive performances about the emergence of rocketry and has parts of the berlin wall on display. You can touch it. It's really cool.

    Take A Tour Of The Salt Mine

    From Redditor u/armoredphoenix1:

    While you are in Hutchinson for the cosmosphere, go to the salt mine for a tour. You go several hundred feet down and it's quite the experience. They show how people mined it out over the years.

    Take In The View From The Castle Near Lindsborg

    From a Redditor:

    Coronado Heights is a small "castle" on top of a relatively tall hill, in central KS. There is a fireplace inside the castle, picnic tables and fire pits outside, and an incredible view from on top of the castle.

    It's also near Lindsborg, which is the largest Swedish settlement in KS, with a gift shop, bakery, art, etc. reflecting their Scandinavian roots.

    See Some Hidden Gems North Of WSU

    From Redditor u/annieallan:

    My husband and I live north of WSU and we love the area! There are a lot of little hidden gem houses with the unique architecture around here. It’s super close to the bike paths which is nice if you like to get out and ride/run/walk on protected spaces and also easily commute to other parts of town. Also, Great Plains Nature Center and Chisholm Trail are right around the corner for outdoor activities.
