Well, everyone. Sadly, the time has come to say good-bye. Since April many of you have been following me as I have experienced all the fun and adventure that Wyandotte County has to offer. Thank you for viewing and allowing me to give you the scoop on all the great attractions we have in the area. I hope you found the information useful. But now, summer is over, and it is back to work for me.
I know that I have been giving you all information for the past several months, but I wanted to express to you all that I have personally learned a lot about Wyandotte County/Kansas City, Kansas through this experience. I have lived in Wyandotte County for many years, and my husband is a life-long resident. I have always loved living here, but I never knew how much our county really had to offer. We have many tourist attractions, such as the Legends, Kansas Speedway, and Great Wolf Lodge, and I am so happy they are here. What I need to remember is that these places aren’t just for tourists. Wyandotte County residents need to take advantage of them as well. I am grateful that this experience has taught me that.
Another thing I am grateful for is the fact that I learned that Wyandotte County isn’t all about the tourist attractions. By going out and visiting the many museums, landmarks, and historical sites, I now know that Wyandotte County is a county full of culture and historic pride. I can’t stop talking about this cultural richness to everyone I meet. I just never knew it was there before. I was uninformed and didn’t take advantage of our opportunities here. I won’t make that mistake again. I know what I’ve done this summer has barely scratched the surface, and I plan to keep seeking out places and exposing my family and friends to them, whether it is on a blog, or just on my own.
So, with sadness, I say good-bye to you all. I hope you’ve had as much fun this summer as I have, but summer is officially over now, so back to the “real world”- at least for now. I don’t know… I hear that Wyandotte County has a lot going on during the holidays. Maybe I’ll see you there!
