Kansas & ok­la­homa

…and the deer and the an­te­lope play. Where sel­dom is heard a dis­cour­ag­ing word and the skies are not cloudy all day…

Here, against the back­drop of a big blue sky, the broad ex­panses of the Great Plains and the last stand of vir­gin tall grass prairies is the heart and soul of Amer­ica.

Peo­ple here are kind and unas­sum­ing and full of hu­mour, warm-hearted and hos­pitable. Western and Amer­i­can In­dian back­grounds are well mixed within con­tem­po­rary life of­fer­ing a fas­ci­nat­ing cul­tural ex­pe­ri­ence in vi­brant cities and thriv­ing small towns.

Kansans and Okies are proud of their his­tory and love to share their sto­ries. Vis­i­tors are gen­uinely wel­come.

LIP-SMACK­ING YUMMY!

De­li­cious down-home food, pre­pared from lo­cally-sourced in­gre­di­ents, is on of­fer through­out the Heart­land States: fried chicken, bar­be­cue, onion burg­ers, pie (with ice cream)... but that’s not all! An eclec­tic food scene – from food trucks to farm-to-fork fine din­ing – is abun­dant across Kansas and Ok­la­homa.

RHYTHM & ROUTES

Live mu­sic is the sound­track to many mem­o­rable evenings – clas­si­cal, coun­try, pop, red dirt, rock and blue­grass events are all com­mon here.

Leg­endary artistes like Melissa Etheridge, Car­rie Un­der­wood, Garth Brooks, Leon Rus­sell and JJ Cale hail from Kansas/Ok­la­homa, whilst the beat goes on at the Amer­i­can Banjo Mu­seum in OKC and at the Woodie Guthrie

Cen­ter in Tulsa.

Evoca­tive his­toric trails bring to life sto­ries alive with Amer­i­can
