Kansas Travel Guide: Big Basin Prairie Preserve, Clark County, Kansashttps://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Big_Basin_in_Fog_2002.jpg
is a landlocked state in the Midwestern United States. It is bordered by Nebraska to the north, Missouri to the east, Oklahoma to the south, and Colorado to the west. The geographic center of the Contiguous United States is in Smith County in Kansas. The state covers an area of 82,277 sq miles (213,096 sq km) and has a population of 2.8 million people. Its largest city is Wichita while the largest metropolitan area in Kansas is the Kansas City Metro area. The capital of the state is at Topeka.
The first European to arrive in Kansas was Francisco Vásquez de Coronado, who explored the area in 1541. It was one of the states that was brought into the United States through the Louisiana Purchase in 1803.
Being a largely rural agricultural state, Kansas is one of the slowest growing in the country in terms of population. This is also the result of rural flight with migration of the population from the countryside to the cities.
