Hutchinson in January

My boyfriend and I will be visiting Hutchinson for a week in early January. We were wondering if there were any events/museums/restaurants in the area that anyone could suggest.

Although it has a different sounding name the Blue Duck Bistro is a excellent restaurant.Also the Kansas Cosmosphere and Space Center is certainly worth a visit. I believe if you do a search you will find web sites for both establishments. Hope this will help.

If the weather cooperates- and the roads are clear, I suggest a road trip for a day or two- take a leisurely drive east on US 50 to Cottonwood Falls/Strong City- though not a long drive, you could stop in Florence and Peabody (check your cattle town history) and stay the night at the Prairie Fire Inn and Spa in Strong City(check out the web site) and get a world class massage. Head north on State 177 and check out the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve along with the town of Council Grove. Head east on US 56 (the old Sante Fe Trail) to McPherson and make a decision- tired and want to go to Hutch? Head south on 61- you're 30 min away- Thinking Scandinavian? head north 30 min to Lindsborg- check out the town. Want to know what all those plants were you saw in the Flint Hills? Go to Hesston and check out the Dyche Arboretum- Finally- you a shopper? There's a flea market at the intersection of US 50 and Ks 61 in Hutchinson- its been condemned for a highway project- but it is one of the greatest collections of junk/treasures in the midwest. Want to buy a ceramic Santa salt shaker and a iron hay wagon wheel in the same place? Check it out....
