Manhattan

Manhattan is a robust city located in a thriving region of northeast Kansas with Fort Riley as a neighbor to the west. Residents and businesses appreciate the importance of military families to our community. Outdoor activities are an essential element of life in Manhattan, which is also known as The Little Apple®. You'll find an abundance of trails suitable for hiking, walking, running and biking. Water sports are prevalent at the state's two largest lakes: Tuttle Creek and nearby Milford Lake. Paddling spots, golf, fishing and zip-line runs are more activities found here. Manhattan is home to Kansas State University. More popular attractions include the Flint Hills Discovery Center, Sunset Zoo and the Konza Prairie.
