After a long day in the car, we finally arrived in Goodland, site of the infamous Kidder Massacre, about an hour before dinnertime.
We checked into the KOA Kampground, which we found to be comfortable, clean, and staffed by very friendly folks.The boys especially enjoyed the swimming pool.
We stayed in a fun little kabin (yes, with a "k"), which was air-conditioned and kwite kozy. There was even a kid-sized kabin in the playground! Krazy, right?
For dinner, we were a little bit discouraged because there were several fun-looking places that ended up being closed. We probably hit half a dozen closed restaurants before we found the L & T Family Restaurant. L & T was a good find -- friendly staff, affordable prices, and great food. We would definitely go back next time we're in town.
And what visit to Goodland would be complete without a trip to the world's largest Van Gogh reproduction? It's a pretty fun thing to say, and thanks to the floodlights, you can see it even after dark.
Finally, as the sun began sinking into the west, we pulled back into the KOA and retired to our kabin for the night.
Goodland was a nice place to stay -- perhaps we'll visit again next time we're headed west.
