Manhattan Travel Guide: 106 reviews and 219 photos
A university town with more to offer than just students and bars. This is a bedroom community also and is further tied to Fort Riley, only 10 miles to the west and nearly a linked suburb. This town epitomizes the Midwest college type town, and is a wonderful place to grow up the family if a job is available.
Back when the main section of the large structures were built, limestone was the choice due to access and durability over decades. The K State campus is only one a a number of buildings that are made of limestone, and they all look elegant and not deteriorating.
Located off US 70 to the north and Hwy 177 runs into town. The back way is to take over to Fort Riley on that named boulevard. The town was formed around 1850's when abolitionists came here to seek freedom for Kansas residents. It was most likely named after the big Apple of New York where investors funded the movement of these settlers to the west. Today it is called the "little Apple". in 1910, they had 7,000 people, and today is has grown to 50,000, and still expanding.
- Pros:A quite but flexible town for the family and students
- Cons:Do not show up during game time
- In a nutshell:This has a little of everything for everybody in town.
The meal was served very well and the employees try hard to please the customer. They have salads that range form $7-10,... more travel advice
There are hundreds of huge wind turbines in the fields to the west of Manhattan and the setting is awe inspiring. So... more travel advice
