Even though spring break means a timeout from education, the Cosmosphere is interesting as well as educational.

Coronado Heights – Lindsborg, KS
Cost: free

Celebrate Kansas history at this historic landmark. Though the castle itself is currently closed, the grounds remain open and the scenery is worth the drive.

Color Me Mine – Wichita, KS
Cost: prices vary

For a more artistic adventure, try Color Me Mine in New Market Square. Select an item to glaze and create a lasting memory with your friends or significant other.

Tanganyika Wildlife Park – Wichita,KS

This park has some of the most exotic animal encounters in Kansas. Their lemur island is always a crowd favorite. Tanganyika reopens for the season over Spring Break week, so expect heavy crowds.
