Fun Facts For The State of Kansas
Kansas is a West North Central state bordered by Nebraska to the north, Missouri to the east, Oklahoma to the south, and Colorado to the west. The state is located in the center of the contiguous (that is, not including Hawaii and Alaska) United States. That's why one of its nicknames is "Midway USA." The American, Canadian, and Mexican Governments use Osbourne County as a reference, or starting, point in mapmaking because of its central location in North America.
If you want to see a variety of landscapes, go to Kansas. The state's landscape includes hills, woodlands, farms, and cities in the east; wheat farms, area of what's called canyon country, and sand dunes in the sparsely populated High Plains of the west; and grassland hills in central Kansas. The state is a Great Plains state. See beautiful sunflowers in Kansas' prairies - that's why the state's best-known nickname is the "Sunflower State." Thousands of gas and oil wells can also be found in its prairies.
If you like bread, Kansas is the state for you. Kansas is one of the leading farming states, producing more than 400 million bushels of wheat each year - that's usually more than any other state. In fact, two of the state's nicknames are the "Wheat State" and the "Breadbasket of the Nation." Wheat isn't all that Kansas produces; Kansas is among the leading states in corn, sorghum, alfalfa, and hay production. Wheat sales don't even constitute the largest percentage of annual farm income; livestock sales do.
Even though Kansas is probably most famous for its agricultural production, the state's manufacturing and service industries generate more revenue for its economy. Wichita, Kansas' largest city and a well-known cattle town since the 1800s, is now a leading producer of aircraft. In fact, Kansas is the nation's leading producer of civilian airplanes.
