Warmer weather invariably draws Manhattan-ites to the outdoors. What’s not to like about sunshine, blue skies and green prairie grasses that emit overflowing joyous revelations and relaxations? Our visiting friends can hop on the same trails as we all enjoy around the Flint Hills. Warmth beckons for trail hikes, golf outings and zipline runs. Fortunately, Manhattan has all of those angles covered. Outdoor dining? That too!
Explorations always start at Flint Hills Discovery Center to increase knowledge about the geologic splendor of the region. What magnificent natural beauty the rolling hills present as the last remaining four percent of North America’s tallgrass prairie exist right outside Manhattan. Hike. Picnic. Adore.
Let the sun splash on your face. Soak it up in our rolling hills as Gateway to the Flint Hills. Wide open spaces are prevalent in northeast Kansas, and we’ve got some of the best in Manhattan. Take advantage!
McCain delivers hit performers
Want more action? On the Kansas State University campus, humorist David Sedaris (April 26) digs at your funny bone with his off-hand view of current events. Sedaris’ appearance is coordinated by McCain Performance Series, which never fails to produce top-notch entertainment. On Sedaris’ coattails arrives Grammy-winning musician Kenny G (April 29) to delight audiences with his phenomenal sax talents.
Steer back to outdoors activities for Kansas State’s 50th annual Open House with a fun-filled Saturday of college-infused zaniness on April 7. Campus spirit spills everywhere with events in the student union, Hale Library and rec center. The K-State BatCats have been crushing it on the diamond, and the same Open House weekend, the Cats play host to the Oklahoma State Cowboys for a Big 12 Conference series at Tointon.
