Favorite Vacation Spot
There are thousands of vacation spots in the world I could choose to go to, but one spot in particular is a place I've already been to. It's a place not many people would expect to go to on a vacation. This place is Andover, Kansas. It's definitely different from the typical vacation spots such as Hawaii or Cancun. There are three reasons why I would go to Andover, Kansas than any other place in the world. The atmosphere and climate, friends and people, and the attraction sites. When most people think about Kansas or the mid-west; they think about how hot and dry is it there all the time. It's understandable to think that but Kansas is just like every other state in the country when it comes to the atmosphere and climate. Summertime in Andover, Kansas is usually somewhat hot between the temperatures of eighty-five to one-hundred degrees. From time to time there will be a day that is very hot and dry but is later cooled down with a nice breeze or rain. What I also really like about the climate in Kansas is that the winters are shorter because of the heat. The great thing about having nice weather almost all year round is there's always something to do outside to enjoy it. During the spring and summertime; fishing, swimming and going to the Andover City Park is mostly what my friends and I did. When it came to wintertime; my friends and I would slide across frozen ponds and lakes. A little risky but it was really fun. We also would go “drifting” in our cars through our neighborhood streets for fun. I've lived in twelve different states and a foreign country because my dad was in the Air Force. Which means I've had a lot of friends come and go. When I moved to Andover, Kansas, I had met and made some of the closest friends I've ever had and still talk to them everyday. Every time I go on vacation to Andover, it's always nice to have friends and people you know when I get there....
