Dodge City, KS

Approximate Miles


About the Route

You know the Wild West is beckoning for you to get the heck into Dodge, where you can experience much of the original Old West. Stroll the streets walked by Bat Masterson and Wyatt Earp and visit Boot Hill Cemetery to pay your respects to those buried with their boots on through 1878. A wax museum, live shows and so much more offer a glimpse into Dodge City’s colorful past. After leaving Dodge City, pay attention to your energy. If you see a roadside motel around the Kansas-Colorado border, stop as warranted. Motels and other lodging facilities are sparse enough that you shouldn’t pass up the opportunity to stop for rest when needed. Keep your road trip safe, folks.
