Wild West City

 
Hit the trail with us to Dodge City, Kansas in the 1880s! Cowboys, galloping horses, smilin’ staff and a town chock full of history will afford you a time you are not likely to forget. Groups will enjoy living history demonstrations, museums, the barnyard zoo, panning for gold, pony rides, and riding the train and stagecoach. There is always something going down on Main Street in the Wild West. Spend some time visiting and talking to our many townsfolk portraying early western life as historic figures or trades people. Refreshments and picnic areas are available. Reservations for groups required.
