Plan on a romantic getaway in Wichita


(Wichita, Kan.) - Wichita offers a wealth of opportunities for a special romantic weekend.

You can be the lead in your favorite romantic movie with the help of the owners of The Inn at Glenstrae. Robert Elliott and Tracy Sloat-Elliott also are theater professionals who will hire actors and provide props to set the right mood.

"We think of ourselves as the ‘To be, or not to be' B-and-B," said Tracy Sloat-Elliott.

The couple converted their home, built in 1900 by a Scottish lumber baron, into a bed and breakfast with the idea of dialling down the stress. They also arrange poetry readings, wine tastings, jazz combo performances, and his-and-her massages.
