“Chalk the Walk” in Lindsborg on Saturday, June 6

On Saturday June 6th, award-winning chalk artist Stephanie McKnight will kick off a month-long celebration of summertime art in Lindsborg! An Oklahoma resident, Stephanie finds her joy meeting new clients, by day, as a sales rep and encourages creativity in her art students at her business, Pints and Paints. Stephanie also enjoys painting custom murals across Oklahoma and Texas.

The Visit Lindsborg Facebook page will provide a live feed for those that want to watch Stephanie create artwork that celebrates Lindsborg’s heritage. We are encouraging people to also bring their own chalk and create designs of their own along the 4.5-mile long Välkommen Trail ANYTIME in the month of June. Tag #VisitLindsborg on Facebook or Instagram for a chance to win a basket of Lindsborg goodies that will be awarded during the first week of July!

Not feeling artsy? There will still be plenty of chalk activities along the Välkommen Trail, thanks to the Lindsborg Summer Recreation Program. Walk the trail or chalk the trail -it’s up to you! This is a great opportunity to stretch your legs and your creativity during the month of June!

Visit Lindsborg this summer or this weekend, but keep in mind that it’s not quite the same.


Lindsborg Vacation Rentals have welcomed three couples and families this week alone
(individuals are always welcome too)
!

A family from out-of-state, a couple celebrating their anniversary and former guests have stayed with us.  They appreciate our enhanced cleaning, called QCD Protocol, which gives peace-of-mind to our guests and our cleaning staff.

Most small businesses are open, but some are closed.

Lindsborg’s coffee shops and retail stores are open, but not every day. But small business owners, such as Hemslojd, are opening carefully.  If a shop appears to be closed, simply call them and ask if they would be willing to open just for you. Lindsborg is a small town – it’s who we are and what we do.

Recently a couple of art galleries closed permanently: Courtyard Gallery and Hands of Time.

But local museums are open. Enjoy original artwork at the Sandzen Gallery. Take a drive to Hutchinson to the Kansas Cosmosphere to see the largest collection of American and Russian space memorabilia outside of the Smithsonian, including the Apollo 13 capsule: Odyssey.

If you’re looking to dine inside of a restaurant, please adjust your expectations. The Swedish Crown and Farley’s are closed for now. But grab-and-go options are available at Blacksmith Coffee, The White Peacock, Ol’ Stuga, Jalisco’s, China, Subway and Pizza Hut. Yes, we know this isn’t ideal.  More options can be found in nearby Salina.

The properties at Lindsborg Vacation Rentals have their own kitchens, so guests can make their own meals: breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks – even a picnic at Coronado Heights or a local park. Be sure to stop by Scott’s Hometown Foods for your supplies and Swedish delicacies.

Our website has updated information under “Calendar of Events.”

We’re Ready When You Are!

We know that travel is a luxury, not a necessity.  Right now, many of us have much higher priorities: putting food on the table, paying the rent or mortgage, keeping up on the bills and putting aside some money for emergencies.  

As spring turns into summer, we believe that travelers will rediscover road trips.  Lindsborg has been, and will always be, a welcoming destination.  When you feel comfortable and confident to venture out, please remember us.

We’re happy to announce our new QCD Protocol: Quarantine, Clean, Disinfect.

After guests check out of a property, it will go under quarantine, staying vacant for three days.  Our professional cleaning staff, wearing masks and gloves, will clean and launder for up to three hours as they always have.  They will then disinfect with a Lysol-equivalent germicide.  These enhanced cleaning procedures will help provide comfort, safety and peace-of-mind for our cleaning staff and our valued guests.

Some Important information to know before traveling
Here is a map of the United States showing the impact of Coronavirus that can be searched by STATE and COUNTY – these can be found on in the upper right corner. 

On April 30, Kansas Governor Laura Kelly released Ad Astra: A Plan to Reopen Kansas, a three-phase plan that allows each country to implement a “safer at home” policy.

Be sure to check the Travel-Related Quarantine Guidelines if you’re traveling from one of eight US states, five foreign countries and if you took a cruise.
