The Sunflower State celebrates many major historical events through its museums, forts and artifacts. Boot Hill Museum in Dodge City depicts the Old West with photographs, live reenactments, gunfights and of course, exhibits. A well-preserved fort from the mid-19th century, Fort Larned National Historic Site also houses a museum, offers guided tours and weapon demonstrations. The Kansas Cosmosphere displays the Apollo 13 command module in addition to other famous items from the space race. History buffs can drive to these attractions and many others along good, safe roads.
Because the state has some of the best roads in the country, the average commute for workers runs right around 18 minutes. Employees often work for one of the major aerospace companies like Learjet, Cessna, Airbus or Boeing because Kansas is known as the aviation capital of the world. Many other residents work with natural gas, oil production or in renewable energy-related businesses. Wheat production also thrives making this state one of the best places to find delectable breads, pies and other bakery delights. Supposedly, wheat farmers produced enough crops in 1990 and 1997 to give everyone on earth six loaves of bread.
Besides these baked gems, restaurants in Kansas serve savory barbecue, mouthwatering steaks, and classic fried chicken. Sides for these main entrees might be okra, collard greens, black-eyed peas, green beans, or corn on the cob. After a hearty meal, Kansans often take to the outdoors.
Biking and hiking through the wooded hills, canyons, and mesas help burn off excess calories. Others opt for golf at Prairie Dunes or Flint Hills National, both ranked in Golf Digest’s top 100. Spectators embrace NASCAR races and soccer games played by Sporting Kansas City. Participating in or watching sports outside makes perfect sense here weather-wise.
Kansas ranks tenth among all the states for the highest number of sunny days. The average daily temperature registers 55 degrees and the state gets 32 inches of rain annually. Snowfall runs about 16 inches per year. But hold onto your hat, tornadoes make regular appearances. The Jayhawk State negates that inclement weather with its financial benefits.
The cost of living here measures almost 9 percent below the national average. Most everything costs less from food to gas to insurance and housing.
If you decide to join the other 2.9 million people living here, don’t hunt any whales. That’s against the law.
