Once you leave the Flint Hills and head south, the land flattens out again and there's scarcely a town of any size between Cottonwood Falls and Ponca City -- except, of course, Wichita, Kansas. Stop in Old Town for a lunch break and take a few minutes to visit one of the nation's largest hat stores, Hatman Jack's.
