Summer Road Trip


There is no place like Dodge City. Especially during the summer when our attractions are in full swing. Plan a road trip and visit the town that Trips to Discover calls the Best Summer Vacation Destination in Kansas. Explore our city's history and enjoy the best the new west has to offer.


Boot Hill Museum

Travel back in time to the dusty streets of the 1870's and 1880's to the Front Street of Dodge City. Grab a sarsaparilla at the Long Branch Saloon, take a can-can lesson, get deputized, or watch the drama unfold during the gunfight re-enactments.

Roundup your journey by catching the longest-running variety show in southwest Kansas during the Long Branch Variety Show in the new Varieties Theater. You will be treated to performances from Miss Kitty, can-can dancers, and singing bartenders, all while enjoying a savory country-style dinner.

Historic Trolley Tour

Climb aboard the Historic Trolley for a tour that will transport you back in time. Learn about the city’s rough and rowdy history from the first settlers through the modern-day agriculture industries that fuel the economy of modern Dodge City.

Historic Walking Tour

The Walking Tour lets you explore the history of Dodge City. More than a dozen Historic Information Storyboards will be found along the route, detailing everything from the founding of Dodge City through the modern cattle industry.

On your trek, you’ll also uncover Trail of Fame medallions of local luminaries, film and television stars, and the heroes and scoundrels who walked or prowled our city’s streets and custom, handcrafted Pole Art Banners adorn multiple light poles in the downtown district, each telling its own story.

Long Branch Lagoon

This 27,000 plus square foot water park, offers western-themed fun and aquatic adventures for the whole family. The park boasts multiple water slides, a children’s play area, interactive water features, a climbing wall, and a 50-meter competition pool. You can relax in the 720-foot lazy river, or ride the rapids in the wave pool.

Open seven days a week with a night swim on select nights, a concession stand, and the option to bring your own cooler. The park routinely hosts special events including concerts and movie nights. 



Whether looking for a relaxing evening sipping cocktails or a night of gambling and excitement we’ve got you covered. Start the night at the Boot Hill Casino and Resort which features hundreds of slot machines, table games, a full service bar, sports betting at the DraftKings Sportsbook, and the Firesides restaurant. 

Stop by Dodge City Brewing to experience hand-crafted beer brewed right here in Dodge City and satisfy your hunger with brick-oven pizza on hand-stretched dough.
