Although the first things you might think of when you hear the word “Kansas” are the Wizard of Oz, Dorothy, Toto, the Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion, the Straw Man, and the Wicked Witches, there is far more to this state than meets the eye. From great food to historical sites, Kansas is a great hidden treasure of the southwest United States which is perfect for people looking at real estate, homes for sale and foreclosures. Kansas is home to the Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum, as well as the Geographical Center of the Continental United States, the Chapel of the Veterans, and the Greyhound Hall of Fame. This state also offers such interesting attractions as Kloudbusters, which launches experimental rockets, the World’s Largest Ball of Twine, Constitution Hall, and The Most Haunted Town in Kansas, Atchison.
The Wichita Zoo is a great place for a family outing, while those who enjoy meat should drop by Luther’s Smokehouse. The Rawlins County Museum and the Mid-America Air Museum are great for history buffs, and nature lovers will enjoy the Open Range Zoo, Cedar Cove Feline Conservatory and Sanctuary, the Maxwell Wildlife Refuge, the Safari Zoological Park Rock City, and the Gypsum Hills. If you are looking for an interesting day trip, drop by Nicodemus National Historic Site, Drinkwater and Schriver Flour Mill, or Fick Museum. Other interesting ways to explore Kansas include an excursion to Cedar Bluffs Reservoir, Ellis Railroad Museum, the Sternberg Museum of Natural History, or Independence Historical Museum.
