Moving to Kansas?

Thinking of moving to Kansas? You’ve made a great choice. Dorothy’s home state might be best known for its vast (and empty) prairies and its wild thunderstorms, but the heart of the American Plains has so much more to offer. A booming economy, affordable living, and a welcoming spirit all make Kansas a great place to be.

The Sunflower State’s harsh winters and crazy tornadoes -- over 60 per year! -- might get the most press, but there’s so much more to enjoy. Whether you choose bustling Wichita or Kansas City (the one on the Kansas side of the border, thank you!), or you choose to make your home in one of the many rural small towns that dot the state, you’re sure to find your perfect home on range in Kansas.
