There are so many, but we'll steer you to five, and the amazing K-Staters on campus can take over from there:
1) Beach Museum of Art, SE part of campus (14th & Anderson)
2) Hale Library and the glorious aesthetics of the main campus library
3) K-State Student Union, 60-year-old student space in the final stages of renovation
4) The Gardens, horticulture display garden building to a 19-acre garden shrine

You have come to the right place! Manhattan is well known for its eclectic selection of unique dining destinations, and all carry a certain "dramatic flair" for incomparable culinary settings. The Little Apple® dishes up big servings of delectable dishes, whether it's Poyntz panache, awesome Aggieville hot spots or Westloop luminosity, MHK knows how to make magic on a dinner plate.
We've got you covered to find more than a dozen running/walking trails. Manhattan is a biking friendly community with great access and ample bike lanes. With a major university, there's also no shortage of students that find jogging access at City Park and many more beautiful locations. Use this list to get you started.
Paddle on the Kansas River or Tuttle Creek Reservoir's river pond area just 5 miles north of Manhattan. Those are the main areas to paddle in close proximity to MHK. Many of the smaller streams run through private property, so make measured judgments or seek authorization.
