I would suggest the KC Metro. Johnson County is main KS county. Great schools, nice mix of rural & historic neighborhoods closer into the city and regular burbs. 

As a local avoid most of the mid size towns in KS as they are quite methy. Either stick closer to KC metro or go full on rural.

Cool thanks man. How much land can you get while being in the metro in like the under $300K range? Gonna have to go full rural if it's not at least a few acres. And thanks for the meth protip lol.

Are you looking to live in a suburb? Johnson County is the gold standard in KS, but you might find that it has a similar feel to some western Chicago suburbs (though KC is a much smaller metro). Lawrence, KS is 40 minutes out but feels more like an independent community. Lots of restaurants, galleries, etc. if that's your thing.

I'm looking to be ideally on like 10+ acres. I'd settle for 5 for the time being. Definitely not looking for a suburbs vibe. I'm lookin to escape the suburbs.

Have you checked out Montana? There's some really beautiful parts

Isn't Montana expensive for desirable areas? 

Houses in and around Jackson Hole are $1.5 MN on the low end and $1 mn+ within an hour of Jackson Hole.

Everything that I've found that's in the $300k range was in towns of like 400 people with no restaurants or near gas pipelines (probably not easy to resell) if you were looking at rural options.

Missoula and the cities in Montana are likely affordable but that's not what OP wants.

Montana's too cold and too far from my wife's family. I'm only moving to warmer areas my whole life. That's something I've decided for myself. Where in Nebraska is dope? Isn't that where Chapelle fucked off to?

Maybe something around Omaha? Never been there before though.

Omaha isn't bad. Know a few people from there.

Chapelle lives in Ohio I think. If Iowa is an option for you, Des Moines has some great suburbs as well.

Spent a summer in the Wichita area for collegiate summer baseball. If you're a person who can embrace the blue-collar lifestyle/culture, you'll be fine. If not, I would suggest looking elsewhere….

Kansas is a land cursed by Allah. I would recommend the Al-Ula valley in Saudi Arabia.saudi

Here are my top picks for "nice but not methy" rural areas in the midwest/east of the US 

- Missouri Rhineland (center around Hermann, MO) 

- Southwest GA Plantation belt (center around Thomasville, GA) 

- NE Iowa/Driftless Area (center around Decorah, IA)

- Piedmont of VA (center around Charlottesville, VA) 

- GA/NC Mountains (center around Highlands) 

- GA Lake District (center aroung Madison, GA) 

- Eastern Shore of MD (the whole dang thing is great)

I lived in Kansas for 9 months in 2006 because of Fort Leavenworth. Cannot remember doing a damn thing there. It's like the bran cereal of states. Some people would like it.

If you want Land and to be close to a metro, Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, or Missouri are probably better if you count OKC and Little Rock as Metros. If not, plenty of land in Dallas (~45 minutes away) and NW Arkansas near Fayetteville might be the prettiest place in the region. Very hilly but very scenic. Outskirts to St. Louis wouldn't be too bad either ~1hr away
