Kansas State Capitol

Kansas is located in the central United States and is bordered by Nebraska, Colorado, Oklahoma, and Missouri. The state is a large producer of wheat, sorghum, and sunflowers. Across the state, historical sites include cattle ranches, colonial settlements, and Native American artifact-discovery sites. Additionally, quirky attractions, such as the World’s Largest Ball of Twine, express the personality of the “Sunflower State.”

The largest city in Kansas is Wichita. Residents here enjoy the Wichita Art Museum, the Mid-America All-Indian Center, and Final Friday, a tour through downtown art galleries, museums, restaurants and shops. Several university campuses, nightclubs, restaurants, and parks are located within the city.

The capital of Kansas is Topeka. Here you can explore Old Prairie Town, a historical site documenting the lives of Topeka’s first Western settlers. Modern amenities in Topeka include Cypress Ridge Golf Course, several museums and galleries, and parks and recreational trails.

Kansas real estate, like the real estate throughout the region, includes both urban and rural properties. Wichita real estate puts residents in the center of entertainment and city life. Farmland and mountain properties provide more secluded environments. Suburban developments provide comfortable living quarters with easy access to town and country.
