In this season of joy and travel, we hope to welcome many visitors to Wallace County - to shop, to hunt, for basketball games and to share the season with family! Also, remember to shop local and support our local businesses! Dollars spent in our community circulate many times, in ways that help us all!
As the year winds to a close, the Wallace County Visitors Bureau would like to thank all who supported our efforts this year, particularly the Wallace County Commissioners and the Sharon Springs Bed Tax Committee, who made it possible for us to be fully funded through 2017! The WCVB is entering its 4th year of serving Wallace County and marketing its beauty, attractions and visitor services to a public that really wants to know! These have included cooperative efforts with the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism, as well as the Northwest Kansas Travel Council. This funding has also brought marketing and enhancement along the Western Vistas Historic Byway and the new Land and Sky Scenic Byway, as well as to travel trade shows in Kansas, Colorado and Nebraska. Plans are underway for 2018’s efforts to bring more visitors to Wallace County!
