Group Tours

The Ideal Motorcoach Destination

Groups tour planners love arranging motor-coach trips to our community because it is easy to access from the interstate, fun attractions, motor-coach friendly lodging facilities, unique restaurants, and free step on guides to provide a tour around town.

We offer a wide selection of motel accommodations, restaurants, and sightseeing. Best of all, it all comes to you in affordable tour package rates.


Hays is ideally located in the Heartland of America, on Interstate 70 and Highway 183 (exit 159). Our central location, in the middle of the United States, makes our city a great stopping place for motor-coach tours going north, south, east or west.

Hays is only 5 hours from Denver, 4 hours from Kansas City, 5 hours from Oklahoma City and 5 hours from Omaha. We are perfectly situated for your overnight motor-coach tour stop.
