Lazy T Ranch Adventures' owner Ron Wilson is, to say the least, prolific. Serving on several government agricultural committees, he has described himself as a 4-H member, radio broadcaster, Sunday-school teacher, and hay-bale stacker—and his poetry, in a wry nod to the lasso hanging from his saddle, has earned him the title of Kansas's Poet Lariat. His wife Chris is equally accomplished, currently serving as deputy secretary of the Kansas Department of Agriculture, and together they invite visitors to their cattle ranch—owned by the family for three generations—to tour attractions such as a historic 1860s stone barn and a collection of horses, cattle, goats, and chickens. The farm also hosts an annual autumn festival every October, during which guests can ride across the meadow on a haystack ride, pick pumpkins at the onsite patch, and sip on the tangy apple cider that dairy cows produce only in the fall.

At each of its 12 locations in Kansas, the staff of Genesis Health Club strive to create a one-stop health-and-fitness center for the entire family. Supervised childcare programs entertain kids with arts and crafts, and Muay Thai classes help youngsters improve coordination and strength under the tutelage of a fifth-degree black belt. Adults can head over to yoga, Pilates, cycling, or MMA cardio classes, which are all led by nationally certified instructors. Guests can also take advantage of the rows of cardio and strength-training machines, or work one-on-one with an instructor to learn correct form and the best way to walk on your hands on a moving treadmill.
The glass wine cave stands squarely in the middle of Scott Benjamin's 4 Olives Wine Bar. Within the crisp, translucent walls rest 800 types of wine and 500 fine spirits, 40 of which are available by the glass. The wine accentuates the fresh fish, wild game, and artisan cheese that Scott uses to craft his Mediterranean-American-style dishes. From chicken breasts encrusted with kalamata olives and served alongside gorgonzola polenta cakes to canadian salmon glazed with mango-peppercorn sauce atop a bed of mixed greens. Scott is so dedicated to making every bite its best that listed alongside every menu item—be it cheese plate or mac 'n' cheese—is a suggested wine pairing.
Along their lush, 40-acre parcel of land, Brad and Mary Ann Funk bring a lifelong dream to fruition every day. The Funks transformed their property into a school—a place where visitors of all ages and experience levels can learn about the couple's shared passion: horses. In the warmer months, students of Ashwood Farms can be seen trotting, cantering, and conquering fences at the outdoor arena, equipped with all-weather footing. Year-round, the farm and stables are home to casual equestrians and competitive riders alike, a handful of whom compete across the country at AA Hunter/Jumper horse shows. Students can enroll in individual classes, or join the equestrian club for a unique, well-rounded experience that includes lessons and tips for a flawless ponytail. Ashwood also provides boarding services for those already equipped with ponies, and school horses for those who wish to use them during lessons and practice rides.
Familiar with all types of steeds, trainer Rebecca Snavely trains horses for full-fledged careers in ranch work, dressage, or jumping. Rebecca brings her talents to starting horses under the saddle, accommodating young ones with a place in the stable and plenty of hay and grain ($18/day). After a 30-day stay, Clearwater’s horses can stand quietly to mount and dismount, stop, back, and turn while exhibiting good ground manners and offering to escort ladies across muddy puddles. Horses can shack up at Clearwater ($180–$280/month) in comfort, since quarters are cleaned and bedded each day with shavings. Long-faced tenants neigh with glee at a diet of 14% protein sweet feed and hearty, quality hay while enjoying accommodations in a stall with a run, box stall, or semiprivate turnout.
