Best place in Kansas
to raise kids and to retire!
The Wichita Business Journal recently reported that "Salina is Kansas' retirement hub", the state's top destination for retirees. In 2009, Salina was selected by Business Week as the "best place in Kansas to raise kids". Neither of these designations are a surprise to those of us familiar with this community. We already know that Salina is a place that honors its duty to provide the highest quality of municipal services to its citizens.
you live, work or happen to visit Salina, we invite you to attend a concert or sporting event at
Center. After getting a bite to eat at a favorite downtown
hotspot, why not take in a relaxing Salina
Symphony performance at the Stiefel
Theatre for the Performing Arts. If you are looking for a visual art
experience, ranging from international exhibitions and prestigious national
shows to fine art with a local flair, then we encourage you to visit the Salina
Art Center. We also offer many museum experiences, including the
fully accredited Smoky Hill Museum. For
theatre goers, the Salina Community Theatre is
a nationally recognized destination. Those that desire an outdoor
experience have many options, including Kenwood
Cove, Kansas' largest and
most exciting municipal water park. Or, feel free to stop by
the Rolling Hills Wildlife
Adventure for the ultimate exotic animal experience. On June 11-14, 2015, don't miss the 39th annual Smoky Hill River
Festival, a massive celebration of the arts and community, with music, food
and art galore! Salina is a city of nearly 50,000 people at the crossroads of Interstates 70 and 135, right in the heart of Kansas. As a retail, manufacturing and cultural center, this is a community that is truly making a positive difference in the lives of people.
You can now see why world renowned adventurer, the late Steve Fossett, chose Salina and our 12,300 foot runway as both the launch and landing site for his record setting, around the world flight in the Virgin Atlantic GlobalFlyer.
As you can see, Salina continually strives to be Kansas' finest community. Thank you for visiting our website and allowing us to serve you!
