Fun For The Whole Family:


  1. Coming in at top of the list is The Flint Hills Discovery Center! The FHDC is a mecca of history plus fun and will appeal to any age. Learn about the Flint Hills- the ecology, culture, and history of the area- while the kiddos check out the interactive exhibits.

Grab your favorite bottle of wine and head over for an evening full of painting, laughter, and friends in the studio. Pre-registration is required to guarantee a seat, but it’s absolutely worth it. There is a new Paint-and-Sip event weekly and you can also book private events with the crew a Uncorked Inspiration. Here’s the calendar of upcoming Paint-and-Sip events you won’t want to miss!
