Bushton Reviews

1 review
Living in Bushton is different. There really isn't anything to do except play at the local park. You will have to drive 30 mins to Great Bend, and over 2 hours to Wichita. If you are retired or have small children than Bushton is the place for you, however if have teenagers then Bushton will not be a good place because they will not be here all that much. The schools though are close and small. There is no night life here in Bushton, however if you wish to look up at the night skies and do nothing then this is the place for you.
