Kansas is in the top 30% of the nation for territorial size, and ranks 33rd in population. Which means only one third of the all that territory is populated, and there is plenty of room to go outside and scream without someone coming down on you for having too much fun.
The state is geographically situated near the center of the United States and the majority of its population is located in the eastern half of the state. That leaves plenty of room for you to find a home in or near one of the small towns in the western half, if what you are looking for is peaceful silence.
But, if you would enjoy more entertainment, shopping and employment opportunities, go east. While you are there, look for affordable housing among the foreclosures in Kansas. These cheap homes are the offerings of financial institutions that have repossessed homes whose owners have gotten too far behind in payments. Many of the properties can be acquired for much less than you would pay for those same properties through a real estate agency.
