Reno County

Access is easy and commute times are short. The highway system is superb and we're less than an hour from the Wichita airport.

Located in the NAFTA corridor, shipping is cost efficient as we are equidistant coast-to-coast and border-to-border.

Reno County offers those who live here the best of both worlds - big city conveniences blended with the benefits of a comfortable community filled with a prosperous atmosphere. There is the vibrancy of a city determined to thrive and progress, yet without the big city problems of air pollution, rampant crime, traffic jams and socioeconomic battles. 

Reno County's 64,058 residents enjoy their central location just a few hours from the Rockies, Ozarks and the metropolitan areas of Kansas City, Denver and Dallas.
