Enjoying Time in Marysville, Kansas

I remember people saying to me, "Why in the world would you want to go to Kansas?"

I challenge anyone that might think there is nothing to see there, to give it a try.  One of our favorite towns in the entire country is there, Marysville.

We left Missouri, heading west, and stopped in Marysville, Kansas.  We had been here two years earlier and were so excited to come back.

The city offers free camping in their city park, but limits the stay to five days.  Really, that is long enough to see all of the attractions, but not long enough for us.  We like it so much there!

It may be a small town, but it has huge history!

This was the first home station for the Pony Express.  Their museum is not too big, but full of information and fun.  Our kids like to play on the pretend ponies and in the carriage.

The city pool is great.

The little old sod house made us appreciate our camper more.

Interesting sign at the Veteran's Memorial in Marysvale, Utah

The Koester House Museum.

The Courthouse Museum is a MUST!
