Ft Leavenworth Army Installation

Reviewed By Jgh59 - Ruther Glen, Virginia

I'm attending school at Ft Leavenworth - what a beautiful Army post. My school is located in the old disciplinary barracks (prison for convicted Soldiers). The Army has re-purposed some of the old buildings for offices and classrooms - great use of the space. You won't get onto post without an ID card, no exceptions..

Sporting Park

Reviewed By Beachlvr83 - McKinney, Texas

My husband and I visited Children’s Mercy Park for our Alma Mater’s Division II Football Championship, Texas A&M-Commerce and what an incredible place and weekend it was!! State of the facility, chairs were SO comfortable, even though we barely sat down during the whole game, restrooms and concessions were all very clean, a very nice pro shop to buy t-shirts and hoodies, and parking was very close for tailgating. All of that made our experience of winning the national championship that much sweeter!! Plus the big video screens at both end zones and the amazing fireworks when we won!! Epic!!! Great job Sporting Park!!

We took the tour and had a great time looking at the renewed production of Bourbon at this location after 30 years! The 3 aluminum sided warehouses seem to be in pretty good shape after their hiatus and they have done a great of making this place tour friendly.

Frontier Army Museum

Reviewed By Hal K - Gainesville, Georgia

Visited the museum while on business here at the Garrison. Superb!! I attended the US Army Command and General Staff College here at Fort Leavenworth, years ago. The Museum was smaller then, but played an integral role in my life even then. The saying then was "This is the Best year of your Life!" Hooah!!

The C.W. Parker Carousel Museum is a wonderful stop for the ENTIRE family. With 4 antique carousels, and a hand-carved, wood, carousel from 1913 that ALL who come can ride, it is a memorable museum. You can take a Guided Tour, a Virtual Guided Tour (utilizing QR codes), or just ride the fast, fun carousel. All tours include a short video and a carousel ride. An adult guided tour is only $6.00. Carousel rides are $1.50 and get cheaper the more you purchase. There is also a quaint, little gift shop, with many carousel items and much, much more. Whether you are 1 or 101 years old, a ride on the carousel is something special.

Not sure what we expected of this attraction but we were truly amazed.
Jerry was our guide and what he didn't know about the history of "Carry All" wasn't worth knowing. To see how they were constructed and the wood carvers expertise was certainly impressive. Topped off by a ride on the world's fastest and oldest carousel was exhilarating.

Visited on a NASCAR weekend and found this Speedway to be particularly fan friendly from the standpoint of ticket prices, food costs, access to seating, visibility to entire track, and especially access to infield area and activities. Just 20 minutes from downtown Kansas City, MO but with plenty of accommodations in the immediate area as well.
