The Highway 36 Association has been working with local Chambers of Commerce, Main Streets, and Economic Development offices in the thirteen Kansas counties that Highway 36 runs through to bring two travel bloggers to our region this month. These bloggers, Sara Broers with Travel with Sara, and Melody Pittman with Wherever I May Roam Blog, will be road tripping along Highway 36 to highlight what visitors can experience in all 13 counties along Highway 36. They arrive in Doniphan County on Sunday, April 3 and journey across the state spending one day in each of the counties until they finish their excursion in Cheyenne County on Friday, April 15. They are set to hit Phillips County on Monday, April 11.
