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.
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.
If you live, work or happen to visit Salina, we invite you to visit our new Kenwood Cove Aquatic Park, attend a concert or sporting event at the Bicentennial Center, get a bite to eat at a downtown evening hotspot, or just relax and take in a Salina Symphony performance at the Stiefel Theatre for the Performing Arts. For theatre goers, the Salina Community Theatre is a nationally recognized destination. Or, feel free to stop by the Rolling Hills Wildlife Adventure for the ultimate exotic animal experience. On June 6-9, don't miss the 37th annual Smoky Hill River Festival, our celebration of the arts and community, with music, food and art galore!
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!
