IN the big cities on the coast, they are cruelly referred to as the “flyover states”. But in the heartland of America where the West was won and hundreds of years worth of history was born, there is a lot more to see than you can spot from the window of a jumbo jet.
Oklahoma and Kansas are the states in the heart of the mid west and if you have already done the sunshine of Florida and the urban excitement of New York and LA, then they are great places to go and see the real America.
Situated right in the middle of the USA, both states are filled with everything you might want from an American holiday, with great countryside and real working ranches recreating the frontier lifestyle.
And thanks to convenient flight connections going straight from Scotland into Newark and then on to the mid western states, it’s never been easier for Scots to enjoy the old West.
