Alma

Alma is a small community rich in German heritage.  Alma is part of the Scenic Mill Creek Drive and Native Stone Scenic Byway, both beautiful drives in Kansas, providing a panoramic view of both Mill Creek and the endless rolling Flint Hills country.

Situated in the scenic Flint Hills and near Interstate 70, Alma is a stable community.  The scenery around Alma is rolling hills of bluestem and fertile farm ground along the creeks.  Mill Creek winds through the area providing excellent fishing and canoeing along with the nearby City Reservoir and six Federal Reservoirs within a 50 mile radius.  The rural area abounds with excellent quail, prairie chicken and deer.Alma Hotel
