Wax Museum in Dodge City

My son had been reading a lot about Dodge City gunfighters, marshalls and gangsters for long and was really talking about the city. We decided to visit the city for a weekend off. We traveled by air with PenAir. We had a good time on board as they had very interesting in flight entertainment. We reached in Dodge City on time. The first place that we visited was the Gunfighters Wax Museum and combined it with Kansas Teachers' Hall of Fame. The wax museum had life-size wax figures of famous, and infamous, cowboys of the Old West. My son had a good time in this museum and also at the Boot Hill Museum.

Family Holiday in Dodge City

We used to live in Dodge City in the 80s. My husband and I decided to revisit the town on his 60th birthday. We traveled by PenAir. Both the ground staff and flight attendants were exceptional. We arrived in Dodge City and stayed at LaQuinta Inn. We were amazed that Dodge City had still preserved its history as well as when we were here. We went down the street that our house was and was still as beautiful as in the 80s. We visited Fort Dodge, Boot Hill Museum, Home of Stone, and Dodge City Trail of Fame. We went shopping at the Boot Hill Antiques. They had a good collection of reasonably priced antiques.
