Here, you can follow the Oregon-California Trail and reach the only authentic Pony Express home station still standing at its original site. You'll wander through historic small towns. Wind along scenic country roads to find old barns, apple orchards, forgotten ghost towns and trail ruts. Rediscover frontier river ports such as Atchison, Elwood and White Cloud, where 30 to 40 riverboats once docked. Along the way, you're also sure to sample good food, friendly conversation and one of the most charming vacation experiences you can imagine.
