Kansas - The Sunflower State

Kansas

Kansas is the centre of the USA. It’s where pioneers’ passion and drive blazed the Santa Fe, Oregon, and Chisholm Trails. Here, in the pristine prairies historic cattle towns like Caldwell, Wichita, Dodge City, and Abilene exist. Beef cattle ranching continues as a huge industry, and raising beef requires plenty of good quality grassland and lots of cowboys. It’s true, cowboy culture is real — and, in Kansas, it is the real deal all the way! Experience the working ranch lifestyle, visit the numerous ranch and professional rodeos, western nightclubs and of course delicious BBQ joints and steakhouses!

The best-know American popular culture story, The Wizard of OZ, made Kansas the “place” for good reason. The unique simplicity of Kansas leaves travellers feeling the heart, seeing the courage and understanding the intellect of this destination. Whether in a car or RV, motorcycle or bicycle, following any one of the ten scenic byways will deliver solitude and tranquility.

The surprising rushes of wide-open beauty are waiting in the rolling Flint Hills and the massive Wetlands and Wildlife national scenic byways. In the Fall, prairie grasses are peaking and massive bird migrations pass through the wetlands.

The Post Rock scenic byway adds a bit of quirky culture at the Grassroots Art Center and the Garden of Eden in Lucas. The large urban areas of Kansas City, Overland Park, Lawrence, Topeka, and Wichita offer everything you would expect – great food, distinctive museums, fine art galleries, upscale lodging, and contemporary nightlife — though, all too, contain a refreshing sense of community.
