KS vs UT

No, this is not about football or basketball or baseball. This is just something I have been thinking about for a long time and decided to put it out there for others to read. Now, my entire existance was in Utah prior to my family re-locating to Kansas 5 1/2 years ago. I am by no means trying to dis family or friends who still reside there. However, I have been told in no uncertain terms that some will never come to Kansas because there is "nothing to do". I beg to differ. Mike and I married in 1998. So we lived in UT for 5 years as a married family. We have now lived in Kansas for the same amount of time. And...... we have done more here in that same time period than we did in Utah. So just for my peace of mind I decided to compare the two. So here is my results in KS vs UT.

Kansas Utah
Worlds of Fun  (no contest) Lagoon
Kansas City Zoo  (huge) Hogle Zoo 
Union Station
Science City
Oceans of Fun Seven Peaks
Paradise Park Boondocks
The Legends Shopping Gateway
The Plaza (14 blocks of shop/dine)
City of Fountains (over 200 of them!)
Plaza Lights Lights on Temple Square
Deanna Rose Farmstead
Kansas City Chiefs
Kansas City Royals
Zona Rosa
American Royal Parade Pioneer Day Parade
Schlitterbahn (2009)
Celebration at the Station (Mem Day)
Lakefest Fireworks (annually)
Christmas In the Sky Fireworks (Nov)
Crown Center Ice Terrace Gallivan Center
Alpine Slide
Camping at the lakes Camping in the mountains
Snow skiing (sometimes) Snow skiing
Utah Jazz
1,985,429 people in 253 square miles 2,150,000 people in 111 square mi
And the winner is..........   KS 23 :  UT 13
I'm sure I could think of more, but I don't have time to sit in front of the computer all day. I welcome any rebuttals.

KS kicks UT's you-know-what hands down. I don't miss one single thing about living in UT. I liked it while I was there, but am glad I am not there anymore.
