Dodge City, KS

Travel Guide
The lawlessness of Dodge City’s Wild West past stands in stark contrast with the laid-back nature of this charming modern Kansas town today.

In its heyday, Dodge City epitomized the “Wild West.” Daily gunfights arose in the main street, which was lined with saloons and brothels. The city was nicknamed “Queen of the Cowtowns” because of its active cattle trade. Today, the laid-back atmosphere offers a peek into life as it was during the Frontier Days.

Boot Hill Museum offers exhibits to entertain any member of the family. Admire Victorian fashion or look at famous guns used during Wild West days. The Cowboy Hall of Fame tells stories of the region’s most famous, and infamous, frontiersmen. Journey back in time at the Long Branch Saloon, preserved to look exactly as it did in the mid-1800s. Walk along a re-creation of Front Street to experience Dodge City as it was in its heyday.

Boot Hill Cemetery provides a realistic snapshot of the violence of the Wild West. It earned its name because most men were buried with their boots on.

HorseThief Reservoir is the perfect place to bring a picnic. Pack fishing poles and canoes or take a dip in the pristine water. Motorboat access enables waterskiing. Spend a night under the stars at one of the reservoir’s tent or RV campsites.

Dodge City has many parks offering playgrounds and walking trails. On hot days, the Municipal Pool is an ideal place for swimming and sunbathing. Spend several hours at the Wright Park Zoo to observe regional and exotic wildlife.

Watch real cowboys in action at Dodge City Roundup Rodeo. From roping contests to horse shows, this early August experience demonstrates the heart of Western culture. Investigate the historic downtown’s many statues and plaques commemorating the town’s turbulent past.

Drive or fly to the region or take an Amtrak train right into the downtown. Hitch a ride on the Dodge City Trolley for an area tour. Dodge City is filled with shops and restaurants guaranteed to leave both suitcases and stomachs a little more full.

"Good deal for the price. The bed and bathroom were clean. The carpeting was dark and iffy - I made sure to not walk on it with bare feet. Check in was friendly and competent."
