As the price of gas continues to rise, just in time for summer vacation, many families are rethinking their travel plans. And many others are grateful that they already have a destination picked out close to home that offers everything needed for a great family vacation.
It’s Eagle Hurst Ranch. Less than a two- hour drive from St. Louis, Eagle Hurst is a family-friendly resort nestled in a wooded campus in the Ozarks.
“I’m goin’ to Kansas City, Kansas City here I come …” the words Wilbert Harrison’s 1959 hit ring true to many Missourians. A pretty straight shot across the state from St. Louis, about 235 miles on Interstate 70, it’s an easy four-hour drive. In these days of high gas prices and tight money, it’s the perfect spot for an out-of-town vacation that won’t break the bank.
I speak from experience. I love Kansas City. Every time I’ve been there I’ve had a ball, and I always leave with a mental list of things to do on our next visit.
