Kansas Guidebook

guidebook to be online!

We are currently (2022 and 2023) working to create an online version of the guidebook. We will be deleting entries in the guidebook that have closed and adding new ones. It will always be a work in progress! We are thankful to Gene and Barb Merry of Burlington, Kansas  for being the underwriters for this project.  "Entrepreneurs supporting entrepreneurs."

Co-authors Marci Penner and WenDee Rowe spent four years going to every one of the 626 incorporated cities in Kansas to research for the new Kansas Guidebook 2 for Explorers.

The result is a 6 x 9" coil-bound book with 4,500 entries and more than 1,600 pictures. The entries feature 515 incorporated cities in all 105 counties and 97 unincorporated spots in the road.
The book is divided into six regions and counties in that region are listed in alphabetical order as are the cities within each county.  Entries include directions, hours, websites and contact numbers.
The new Kansas Guidebook 2 for Explorers made its debut at the Kansas Sampler Festival May, 2017.
