Kansas - land of sweeping golden plains, big blue skies, breathtaking sunsets, rich history and friendly people - the perfect setting just waiting for someone to call it home. With a diverse population of almost 3,000,000, Kansas offers endless opportunities and limitless possibilities.

Where else can you see horse-drawn carriages and experience space exploration by journeying down one highway? Where technological advances are made and modern medical facilities are found. Where else can you view the glitzy, sparkling lights of Kansas City or splash under a hidden waterfall in a beautiful rural community? Only in Kansas.

In Kansas, the state has so much beauty to offer throughout the year, starting with awe-inspiring horizons, eastern woodlands, unique rock formations, brightly colored sunflower fields, lush flint hills, and a wonderful climate that yields more than 226 days of sunshine per year.
