      When I saw Budget Travel's vote for favorite small town of America, I immediately thought of my 2011 visit to Fort Scott Kansas. Our family was making a cross-country trek from Michigan to California and we happened to stop in Fort Scott for a few days to relax and recharge for the drive ahead. We ended up staying for three days and enjoyed every minutes. One of the most highly recommended small towns in America.
      There are about 8000 residents in Fort Scott but the town played an important part of the history of setting the Western United States. There are several interesting sites in and near Fort Scott including venues of historical, cultural and environmental interest. After our visit, we felt as though we'd seen some real Americana.  
      Fort Scott Fort and the National Cemetery
      Fort Scott played an important role in the settlement of the West. It was built in 1842 as an outpost for troops who enforced the uneasy peace between the settlers and the Osage Indians. Westbound travelers could fill up on provisions at the fort before they set out on their journey along the Santa Fe Trail. As the Civil War loomed the troops tried to separate the pro-slave and anti-slave activists in the newly-formed state of Kansas. When the war did break out Fort Scott became a Quartermaster's Supply Deposit, as well as the training base of the First Kansas Colored Infantry -- a unit that took part in multiple battles and suffered more casualties than any other Kansas regiment. The Fort Scott National Historic Site, operated by the National Parks Service, offers a view into the frontier days including the original fort's buildings. Guided tours are offered twice daily (11:00a.m. and 13:00pm.) during the summer months by costumed guides who provide a full explanation of the type of life the early soldiers and residents of Fort Scott experienced.  The fort is located south of I54 on Market Street near the city center. (620) 223-0310  
      Abraham Lincoln inaugurated the Fort Scott National Cemetery as a military cemetery in 1865 when it was already serving as the final resting place of hundreds of Union and Confederate soldiers as well as for troops that had been killed during the pre-Civil War period. After its establishment as a National Cemetery the remains of other soldiers who had been buried throughout Kansas and Missouri were brought to the Fort Scott cemetery for reinternment. These included black Union soldiers of the First Colored Infantry. In the northeast corner of the cemetery visitors can see memorial markers which honor soldiers whose remains were not recovered or identified including WWII flight crews.
      Gordon Parks Museum
      Gordon Parks was born and raised in Fort Scott. Many people remember him as the director of the movie "Shaft" but before his movie career he was a recognized photographer whose work was featured in a number of photoessays for well-known newspapers and magazines, including for Life Magazine. Parks photographed celebrities and fashion models but his best-known works showcased the black experience of the South in the pre-Civil War era. The Gordon Parks Museum is located in Fort Scott. Many of Parks' photos, which brought the reality of Southern racism and black poverty to the public conscious, are exhibited in the museum. The Gordon Parks Museum is situated in the Mercy Health Center, located at the southern edge of Fort Scott just off US Highway 69. Entrance is free. The museum is open daily from 7:00a.m. to 8:00p.m.   620-223-7036
      Rock Creek Lake Waterfalls
      The Rock Creek Lake Waterfalls offer a quiet step into nature. Located just three miles West of Fort Scott, travelers can either hike to the waterfalls from Fort Scott or drive there and leave their car in the park's parking lot that's located on the side of the road. There's a short trail down to the waterfalls from the park where first one, and then a little further on two more, waterfalls spill off from the Rock Creek Lake into the Marmaton River.  When the water is low it's possible to walk across the stream at the bottom waterfall. To access the Rock Creek Waterfalls park, drive out of Fort Scott on 19th Street which soon changes to "Kansas Road" and then again to "195th Street." The park's parking lot is at the north edge of Rock Creek Lake.  Cross the bridge over the dam to reach the waterfalls.
      Lowell Milken Center
      The Lowell Milken Center was established in 2007 as an educational institution which is dedicated to promoting high level scholastic achievements in America's schools. The Center was established when two educators, Norman Conrad and Lowell Milken, decided to collaborate on a concept that would encourage students to create well-researched, high-quality research projects about unsung heroes -- people who had acted in an exceptional manner to benefit mankind but whose efforts had not been recognized. The Center is located on Fort Scott's Main Street. Featured unsung hero subjects include journalists, environmentalists, humanitarians and others.  (620) 223-9991 
      Fort Scott's Good Old Days
      We happened to visit Fort Scott during their annual three-day "Good Old Days" festival which takes place over the course of one weekend every June. The Festival brings fun and good cheer to the town with a crafts fair, rides, a Dock Dogs competition (people bring their dogs and encourage the dogs to jump off a dock into a pool of water as they try to catch a toy in the air.  The dog that jumps the farthest, wins), street dances, carnival food and drinks, live entertainment and more.

  • An Orca calf is playing with i An Orca calf is playing with its mom as seen from Whale Watching boat departing from Marina del Rey, California

    • From: Florentine
    • Description:

      The orca is found in all the oceans of the world, though they are more abundant in cooler waters. Unlike some other species of whales, which follow a regular migration route each year, the orca seems to travel according to the availability of food. They are one of the few species of whales that move freely from hemisphere to hemisphere.
