Kansas! Magazine has released its list of the five best small towns in Kansas, and a couple of western Kansas towns made the cut, including Atwood in far northwestern Kansas. The town, with a population of just over 1,000, features attractions like the Jayhawk Theatre, Hayden Nature Trail and the Rawlins County Museum and Historical Society.
Nearby Norton, Kansas, was also on the list. With a population of almost 3,000, Norton claims the Prairie Dog State Park, They Also Ran Gallery, and the Norton Motor Cross Track.
