From the buttes and mesas of the Gypsum Hills clear to the stars, the contrasts of Heartland Country will amaze you. If it's adventure you crave, blast off at the Kansas Cosmosphere & Space Center, where you'll see a full-scale replica of the Space Shuttle, the world's largest collection of space suits, and a collection of space memorabilia second only to the Smithsonian. Then, come in for a slow landing at Yoder as you pass an Amish horse and buggy amidst fields of golden wheat. You can always whoop it up later with the cowboys and cowgirls at the state's largest night rodeo in Pretty Prairie, or take a trail ride of your own across one of the great expansive wildlife preserves. Follow your own across one of the great expansive wildlife preserves. Follow your heart to Lindsborg -- "Little Sweden U.S.A" -- where Swedish traditions and Old World charm (with memorabilia from the St. Louis World's Fair) have been enjoyed for nearly 120 years. Before you leave Heartland Country, you're sure to find a little bit of your heart.
