DISCOVER KANSAS From prairies and wheat fields to hills and skyscrapers, explore all that the Sunflower State has to offer.

Welcome to Kansas — The Sunflower State

Kansas is a land of contrasts from the sweeping prairies to the west to the lakes and cottonwoods of the east. Kansas, situated on the American great plains, is on a slant, sloping upward from the southeastern corner towards the northwest near Colorado. Near central Kansas, exploring the gentle rise of the Flint Hills is like going back in time and seeing the Great Plains as they have existed for the early pioneers. Looking for things to do in Kansas? To experience this area is to spend time exploring the historic trails, plentiful lakes, and great barbeque. Kansas destinations include everything from hills to prairies to spectacular sunsets.
