11 Privileges Kansans Have That The Rest Of The U.S. Doesn’t
Kansans all over are lucky to be living in one of the best states ever. Living here, we’ve got a few privileges and perks from the spaces around us and the people living here with us. Not only are there regular perks to living here, but special ones that are Kansas-only. Here are a few of our favorites, but feel free to add your own ideas in the comments.
1. Bierocks so good you'll fall in love.
Other states might have bierocks or "runza" as some call them, but they'll never compare to the ones made by Kansans whose ancestors brought the recipe here originally.
2. Rooting for Jayhawks, Cats, and Shockers.
Three great teams, all in one great state.
3. Seeing open skies no matter where you are in the state.
Whether you're in the flint hills, open prairie, or gypsum hills, the landscape never gets in the way of our beautiful skies.
4. Towns full of character.
There's no small town like small-town, Kansas. Of course, that also means that you'll fall in love with these small towns full of history and wonderful people.
5. Exploring rock formations like these.
No other state has Monument Rocks, Rock City, and Mushroom Rock State Park like we do!
6. Gazing into the most beautiful sunsets on earth.
Kansas sunsets are so breathtaking, plenty of us will even stop on a side street just to get a good photo.
7. Feeling like family in every small town restaurant.
Small town restaurants are great places to feel connected to the town and the people in it. Plus, the food is amazing.
8. Climbing the easiest 'mountain'.
Okay, so we know it's not a mountain, but Mt. Sunflower is a great place to visit and add your name to the list.
9. Being surrounded by all kinds of terrain.
Arikaree Breaks, the Gypsum Hills, the Sand Hills, and more. We're so lucky to live surrounded by so many different areas.
10. Sunflower season.
Other states have sunflower fields, but they're nothing like how Kansas does sunflowers. All over in the late summer and fall, you can see sunflowers across the state.
11. Being surrounded by the most wonderful people on earth.
Kansans are a wonderful sort, with plenty of lifetime friends, if only you explore.
Another thing Kansans get to enjoy is
the largest dinosaur park in the U.S., right here in our backyard. What’s your favorite perk of living in Kansas?
