The Flint Hills is a region of Kansas.

Understand[edit]

The Flint Hills encompasses 13 Kansas counties (Butler, Chase, Chautauqua, Cowley, Elk, Geary, Greenwood, Lyon, Marshall, Morris, Pottawatomie, Riley, Wabaunsee) and smaller areas of 7 peripheral counties (Clay, Dickinson, Jackson, Marion, Ottawa, Saline, Shawnee). Some people are surprised to learn that such a large section of Kansas is so hilly, as much of the rest of the state is relatively flat.

Food is superb and reservations are recommended. Honored as one of the 8 Wonders of Kansas Cuisine.
  • The Cozy Inn108 N. 7th Street +1 785 825-2699. Salina KS. Small restaurant that serves small burgers, similar to those made by White Castle.
