12. Kansas

When the zombies arrive in Kansas, stay away from the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve. It’s in Flint Hills. Tall grasses in a prairie are a prime hiding place for zombies, second only to corn fields. They’re both creepy, and if you get turned around while trying to run away, you’re basically doomed.

Lesson: Stay away from tall grass.

If you’re in Kansas, head to Dodge City’s Boot Hill Museum. The museum is dedicated to the state’s pioneering days and the Old West. There’s also the Old Cowtown Museum in Wichita, which also celebrated the state’s cowboy roots. Like Rick Grimes and the group raiding the Smithsonian, heading to an Old West museum will yield lots of tools that will make you a better zombie apocalypse survivor. Not only that, but it’s a place where you can learn how settlers survived. If you can learn to live off the land away from modern creature comforts, you’ll be ahead of the game.

For the climbing enthusiasts, Monument Rocks could be an ideal place to set up a shelter. If you can climb you can escape the zombies, and you’ll be safe so long as other climbers don’t try to climb your rock and steal your stuff.
