The Skirvin Hilton Oklahoma City

Welcome to the USA’s Heartland States! Kansas and Oklahoma epitomise America’s heart and soul, where cowboys still tend their cattle and the spirit of the Old West still hangs in the air. If you’re looking for stunningly scenic wide-open landscapes and even wider smiles of welcome, this is the place to head for. Of course, there’s also the iconic Mother Road, Route 66, where more than 400 miles sit within these two states.

In Oklahoma, watch cowboys in action at rodeos and livestock auctions, explore one of their State Parks, or join a powwow held by one of the 39 Native American tribes headquartered there. In Kansas, you can follow the Santa Fe Trail, carved out by gold panners, fur trappers and settlers or visit Dodge City, once known as the ‘Wickedest Little City in the West’ – a pure definition of the West. Today, it’s like a living, breathing western movie.

If it's a taste of city life you crave - farm-to-fork food, eclectic music and world-class museums and art galleries - Kansas and Oklahoma will surprise and delight, from Oklahoma City to Kansas City; from Tulsa to Wichita.
