There's no place like Kansas, according to Dorothy in the classic movie "Wizard of Oz." Kansas blends small-town charm with big-city attractions and is a great destination for an extended weekend or any day, for that matter.

Winter is the season to spend quality time with loved ones, and what better way to do that than with a Yellow Brick Road Trip… holiday edition?! Towns all across Kansas get dressed up in lights, wreaths, and tinsel to spread holiday spirit. Make this holiday memorable by experiencing the lights with the ones you love.
