Tucked in the Flint Hills of northeastern Kansas, Manhattan is a pleasant city with a vibrant community. Amid the rolling hills filled with tallgrass, Manhattan is home to the Kansas State University’s Wildcats, from which it draws much of its town spirit. It has also been nicknamed the “Little Apple,” mixing education and entertainment.
According to the 2012 U.S. Census, Manhattan has a population of about 56,000. With the KSU campus in its city limits, the majority of its residents are employed in educational services.
The Kansas weather is not quite as wild as what Dorothy experienced, but residents will still tell you that it varies drastically - from day to day as well as season to season. During the summer, temperatures reach highs of 90s while the winter drops into the teens.
Attractions and activities in Manhattan
The Little Apple offers something for everyone. One of the biggest highlights is the Flint Hills Discovery Center, a massive building that houses exploration exhibits in the cultural, biological and geological history of the Flint Hills - the last standing tallgrass prairie in North America. You can also find the oldest commercial art gallery in all of Kansas called Strecker-Nelson, the Midwest’s largest country music festival at the end of June and the cowboy-crazy Lazy T Ranch.
For the outdoor adventurer, the City Park has pools, trails, splash parks, an ice skating rink and tennis courts. Kids get a kick out of The Sunset Zoo and Kansas State University Insect Zoo as well. If you want to get your heart rate up, check out the Linear Park Trail, a 9-mile trail looping in and out of the city.
You can’t call yourself a true Manhattan resident until you experience a K-State sporting or cultural event. Head to the Billy Snyder Family Football Stadium to get lost in a sea of purple Wildcat pride.
