The vast fields literally flatter than a pancake, the starry night skies, and 60 tornadoes per year. Welcome to the gateway to the wonderful land of Oz, the Sunflower State!
Kansas is known for its edgy ridiculous laws (like don’t sing the alphabet in Topeka during nights), for its slow-cooked smoked barbecue, and jesting hatred toward Missouri. Visit Wichita for the Wichita River Fest to enjoy local bands of all genres and styles. For the daring, the Schlitterbahn Waterpark in Kansas City offers to test your nerves on the world’s tallest waterslide. Just don’t travel around Kansas looking for Smallville – it’s actually fictional.
Kansas has a long history of farming, so there’s no wonder it is one of the most productive agricultural states. For big jobs, try Spirit AeroSystems Holdings, Lansing Trade Group, and SeaBoard- Fortune 500 companies. The University of Kansas and Kansas State University provide the best education in the state and are considered among the best in the nation.
