For the rest of Kansas, Medicine Lodge has a reanactment of the Peace Treaty every 3 years. To the west, is the Gyp Hills. The Gyp Hills are very scenic. Must stop in Sun City at Buster's for a steak. Gypsum Hills Wildlife Drive

Flint Hills.. are beautiful and throughout are many small towns with lots of historical value.
Kansas - Flint Hills

In the small towns, like Kiowa, St John, Medicine Lodge, Attica, Sharon, Anthony and Pratt... you can sell your home retire and buy a nice home for 30,000 (sometimes less!). People will treat you like you lived there your whole life.

Wichita has a great healthcare and cancer recovery system through the Wichita Clinic.

Thumbs up I would love to move there...

I have visited Kansas many times since 2003. My wife and son presently live there in a small town called Caney. I enjoyed the peace an quiet along with a more consevative environment; I am looking forward to being able to relocate to Kansas from Maryland, where I live right now.

Pretty much everything including that in Kansas you are mostly half way to anywhere in continental US. I like that non-Kansans think the State is not a place anyone would want to be. Good. If they don't move here we can keep our wide open spaces and lack of concrete and clean air.

I love that I can own a nice house and not be broke every month trying to pay the mortgage on a mediocre place in a larger metro area.
I love that my commute is 10-15minutes instead of over an hour.
I love that in 10-35 minutes I can be hiking state parks, catching a flight, going to a wide range of restaurants, music, sports events, museums etc.
I love that my kids go to public schools that match or exceed what some people have to pay many thousands for just so their kid isn't attending a hell-hole.
