3. Admire the fall leaves

Tuttle Creek Lake Fall

The best part of fall in Kansas is watching the leaves turn into vibrant colors of red, orange, and yellow. For some of the best fall views take a walk around the River Pond at Tuttle Creek Lake or stroll through K-State’s campus to see the gorgeous Fall colors in Manhattan.


4. Find the best pumpkin spice latte

Brothers Coffee Co

With several of our favorite coffee shops serving up a special fall menu, there are plenty of opportunities to find the perfect pumpkin spice latte. But don’t stop with coffee, fall pastries are a must as well. Try Arrow Coffee’s Fall Spice Shortbread, a pumpkin muffin from Radina’s Bakehouse or a delicious cinnamon roll from Bluestem Bistro.
