Dorothy was on to something—there’s no place like Kansas to make a home. Criss-crossed with rivers and full of historic trails, the great state of Kansas is the beautiful centerpiece of the American Midwest. Its 82,000 square miles are dotted with poplars, white pines, and sycamores from one end to the other. Drive down one of its long and winding roads and you’ll see wild sunflowers, rolling plains, and beautiful landscape as far as the eye can see.
Kansas may be known as the Breadbasket of America for its amber waves of grain, but there’s a lot more to the Sunflower State than agriculture. If natural splendor is your thing, check out Big Basin Prairie Reserve or the Cimarron Natural Grasslands. If you’re more of a roadside attraction kind of tourist, you can’t leave without a visit to the Evel Knievel Museum or the biggest ball of twine in the world.
While there are more than 2.9 million Kansans currently living their best lives on the plains, Kansas has also produced dozens of famous artists, politicians, athletes, and other notable people like Charlie Parker, Janelle Monáe, and Amelia Earhart. Even Superman grew up in Kansas!
Of course, we couldn’t wait to put down roots in Kansas ourselves. That’s why we’re pleased to announce that Hippo is now available statewide, from Overland Park to Dodge City, offering affordable protection for 1.2 million of Kansas’ homes. So whether you need to insure your Wichita townhome or protect the family farm, there’s a customizable Hippo policy that’s right for you.
Because of its position right in the center of the United States, Kansas lies at the intersection of several climate systems, resulting in some truly impressive weather. Kansas thunderstorms are legendary, sometimes turning into supercell storms that lead to flash flooding, enormous balls of hail, and destructive straight-line winds. Oh, and did we mention the tornadoes? Kansas has those, too—more than 50 of them a year, on average. That’s why smart home insurance is essential in the Jayhawker State, to protect Kansans’ homes from the worst the weather has to offer. We even offer free smart home monitoring kits with most policies, which helps you both protect your home and lower your costs.
In fact, Hippo does a lot of things differently. We were built on the belief that homeowners deserve better home insurance, and our goal is to make it a reality for our customers Hippo’s platform uses real-time data to keep assessments up to date and our customers fully insured, often saving them up to 25% in the process.
