Kansas

Yes, they have tornadoes in Kansas. They also have farms. But did you know that they also have a near-desert in the state's southwest corner that is complete with cactus and sagebrush? 

Kansas is home to many different landscapes, ranging from the skyline of metropolitan Wichita to the rolling Flint Hills in east-central Kansas, the largest segment of true tallgrass prairie in the U.S. 

Since the people of Kansas are said to be some of the nicest in the country, it's no wonder that so many pioneering women, such as the first female mayor and the first African-American female lawyer, have called Kansas their home.  

Kansas also offers something for visitors who tend to like things that are a bit more unusual. For example, the Garden of Eden, in Lucas, is the home of a bizarre assortment of sculptures by a Civil War veteran. But that's not the strange part -- the man lies in a glass-enclosed coffin and can be viewed for a small fee. Enjoy!
