The Kansas experience is a salute to the real. To the rowdy. To the wide-eyed wanderers. To the dreamers. To the stars.
The Kansas motto ‘Ad Astra Per Aspera’ is part of our culture. It is the mantra that formed this great state. ‘To the stars through difficulties’ defines who Kansans are.
In Kansas, you will see stars and not just the kind that line a boulevard. It's not our nature to celebrate ourselves. We celebrate real luminaries. Those that light up our night sky and those who brighten our landscapes.
In Kansas, we love fast cars and slow-cooked brisket. We build machines that touch the sky but stay grounded in the things that matter most. We live out loud and embrace the solace of silence. We conquer rocks and celebrate on the rocks. We ride like the wind and live for the water.
The Kansas experience is a salute to the real. To the rowdy. To the wide-eyed wanderers. To the dreamers.
To The Stars.
