Venture nine miles north of Interstate 70 to experience Big 12 sports, elite golf, dining at its best, shopping, stunning prairie vistas, epic theatrical productions and discover the Flint Hills, indoors and out!

The Flint Hills Discovery Center is your gateway to learning about the last remaining stand of tallgrass prairie. Witness fire and snow outside on the prairie, and inside; delve underground; breathe fresh air from the multi-story patio and splash your way through the Blue Earth Plaza just out the doors of the Discovery Center.

Venture into our rich heritage with neighboring Fort Riley, and out along the Oregon Trail. Fish and boat in the second largest lake in the state; Tuttle Creek State Park. Play elite golf on one of three public courses, or enjoy four days of the largest country musical festival in the Midwest; Kicker Country Stampede!

Take the family to wind in and out of flower-lined pathways with AZA accredited Sunset Zoo. View creepy crawlies up close at the insect zoo and meander the kaleidoscopic K-State Botanical Gardens. Ready to head inside? Sample our shopping with multiple districts around Manhattan from quaint local shops to big-city offerings!

Aggieville provides an active nightlife and fantastic local dining, eclectic shopping, and purple pride. Don’t forget to tour the Kansas State University campus, or catch an on-stage production with the McCain Performance Series; bringing actors and performers from around the world!
