Kansans are famous for their modesty, but it’s hard not to brag about the state’s world-class communities.  

Kansas is a blend of cosmopolitan and rural, with everything from thriving metro areas, downtowns and suburbs, to serene farm communities and quaint college towns. 

There are 2.9 million people in Kansas, including Wichita, the state’s largest city and the aerospace manufacturing capital of the world. Other large cities in our state include Overland Park, Olathe, Lenexa, and Kansas City, Kansas along with Topeka, the Capitol of the state. 

And don’t forget the state’s historic farm and cattle towns - places like Dodge City, Garden City, Salina, Hays and Great Bend - that have made Kansas the Heartland of America and one of the most prolific agricultural regions on earth.
