Woven with the rich fabric of rural life, Kansas is a slice of classic America. It is the 15th largest state by area in the US. 'The Sunflower state' is known for unspoiled landscapes, rugged cowboy culture, smoldering barbeque, and sweet echoes of jazz.
The state has 105 counties, sixth most in the country. Topeka is the state capital. Known as “Air Capital Of The World”, Wichita is the largest city in the state. Overland Park, Kansas City, Olathe, and Lawrence are other major cities in Kansas.
