...is the city's slogan. OOOOkkkkay. As Good as It Gets? Maybe not, but, I have seen a whole lot of little towns that didn't have as much going for them as this little town on the high prairie in the extreme northwest corner of Kansas.
St Francis appears to have lots of services and amenities, is clean and well cared for, and boasts several attractions for the traveler - including one of the midwest's least-known, and most surprising geographical features, the Arikaree Breaks.
We took our trip to the region for the express purpose of visiting the Arikaree Breaks - a part of Kansas I had heard about for years, but had never been there because of its remote location. The rough terrain and deep canyons are NOT what most travelers expect to see in Kansas.
It was here that the Plains Indian wars began in 1865, ending more than a decade later at the Battle of the Little Big Horn in Montana.
- Pros:It's off the beaten track.
- Cons:It's off the beaten track.
- In a nutshell:Nice little town with interesting attractions.
