Kansas is an almost rectangular shaped state at the geographic center of the United States. Wichita, the state's largest city, is home to many of the world's aerospace companies and has earned the nickname of Air Capital for this. Topeka is the state's capitol and is home to many of the state's governmental agencies. Kansas City also is halfway in Kansas and is a large metropolitan center.

Tallgrass Prairie preserves the natural habitat of the Prairies. Of the 400,000 square miles of tallgrass prairie that once covered the North American Continent, less than 1 percent remains, primarily in the Flint Hills.

Other sights include Fort Larned on the banks of the Arkansas river and Fort Scott which witnessed a decade of rapid westward expansion in the 1840s followed by civil strife and unrest in the 1850s that brought about the deadliest conflict of US history - the Civil War.

In the northwest of Kansas, Nicodemus is a unique historic site. It is the only remaining western town established by African Americans during the Reconstruction Period following the Civil War.
