Big tree, big trimmings, big fun ... MHK for the holidays!
Popping into Manhattan for fifth annual Festival of Lights celebration during December creates a list worthy to check more than twice! Our own Visit Manhattan blog can delve out assistance for complementary activities around your visit to Blue Earth Plaza, all centered on Downtown Manhattan spots. Ready. Set. Go!
First order of business: Breakfast!
Why not start your adventure with a big bowl of “morning, sunshine”, aka Buenos Dias Frittata?! The Chef is an MHK landmark, and the most in-demand breakfast spot in town launches every day forward with the slogan, “It’s A Beautiful Day in Manhattan”.
Discover the Flint Hills’ origins
The beauty of the Flint Hills is renowned … the vastness appears abundant around Manhattan. Yet the actually dwindling abundance of once-widespread tallgrass prairie is explained in magnificent terms at Flint Hills Discovery Center. The introductory, multi-media presentation “Tides of Time” at Horizon Ranch Immersive Experience Theater transports visitors to the prairie for controlled burns, snowfall and more. Saddle up and play ranch-hand.
Coffee stop, sweet spot
You started the day with a filling breakfast. A stop at Radina’s Bakehouse in Blue Earth Place will hit the spot for mid-day morsels. Grab an extra loaf of fresh bread or equally fresh, locally-brewed coffee. Brownie? Cinnamon roll? You won’t regret it!
Downtown-area Poyntz shopping
The ability to whisk your way on foot around Downtown Manhattan from one shop to the next, with nearby hotels and convenient eateries, is what makes MHK’s superb access so impressive. Pop around Poyntz and consolidate clothing, accessories and home furnishings in a few, joyous afternoon stops.
Escape room enjoyment
Locked Manhattan makes great afternoon, mind-challenging puzzle mysteries with adventures typically designed for 4-8 people. Up to the test? Can you emerge successfully? Part detective sleuth, part follow-the-trail of clues to victorious freedom (they do let you out after an hour ... after you admit defeat).
Town Center 13 dine-In theaters
Take your movie experience up a notch with the dine-in experience of AMC Manhattan Town Center 13. One of only three IMAX screens in the state, and a fabulous entertainment choice. Puts a whole new scope on dinner-and-a-movie.
Hardest part to embrace a restaurant selection, then pare down options on the insatiable levels of menu selections. Three-day weekends reward visitors with plenty of choices among Harry’s, Bourbon & Baker, Tallgrass Taphouse, Wine Dive Kitchen, della Voce, AeroJuice, Radina's and more! We're talking salacious enticements here.
Before and after you visit the jolly dude decked out in the red suit at Manhattan Town Center (how suave!), stuff yourself and shopping bags with Manhattan morsels and purchases, respectively. MHK for the holidays!
