Did you know that the Manhattan Conference Center, 410 S. 3rd Street, has the highest Walk Score® among competitive meeting facilities across the state? Well, now you know!

What does it mean?

Walk Score® “measures the walk-ability of any address using a system of real-time updates from various sources”. Factors affecting a Walk Score® include restaurants and bars, shopping, culture and entertainment facilities and parks and public spaces, to name a few.

A visit to Manhattan is a rounded experience, one where you’ll be sure to return again and again. And that’s a fact; most of Manhattan’s visitors on average travel here more than 10 times a year!


What makes Manhattan so special?

Manhattan Conference Center offers a cultural hub with something for everyone: lodging, nearby dining and entertainment! Innovators and explorers of all ages enjoy traveling to faraway lands or into worlds unknown at the Flint Hills Discovery Center. Art enthusiasts marvel at the work on display at the first commercial art gallery in the state, Strecker Nelson West Gallery.

If art isn’t your forte, don’t fret, the conference center is a short walk from the bustling Downtown Manhattan shopping district. While out shopping, you’ll want to venture to AggieVille, the very first shopping district in Kansas. Situated adjacent to Kansas State University, AggieVille offers dynamic hotel accommodations, meeting space and attractions.


Did we mention the food?

Boasting more than 60 unique dining establishments, Manhattan is the ultimate “foodie” paradise! Take your sweetie out for a night on the town at award-winning Harry’s Restaurant. Or check out della Voce or Wine Dive Kitchen, a relative “newbie” to the Manhattan dining scene.

Looking for a more casual evening? Visit Tallgrass Taphouse (home to Tallgrass beer) or head next door to Bourbon & Baker for a unique menu with offerings like duck fat fries, chicken and waffles, and fried bologna slider stacks. The Hut: Bayou Bar and Grille offers an unforgettable evening with New Orleans-inspired dishes.

All of this and more within walking distance of your next meeting or event.

We know what matters most for your small or large event, corporate meeting or business gathering: (1) High-quality, functioning space, (2) High-quality hotel rooms and (3) Walkable destinations.

We don’t just talk about it – we are about it – Visit Manhattan Kansas and see for yourself!
