Neglected and mostly abandoned, there were few bright spots along this stretch that led towards one of Topeka's top tourist spots - The Great Overland Station. As newbies to town, we thought that seemed too bad, but like many people, we kind of saw it as a dead-end.&nbsp; Tue, 11 Jun 2013 07:00:00 GMT http://www.travelks.com/blog/post/2013/11/NOTO-Arts-District-Topeka-s-Arts-destination/3038/ Topeka’s First Friday Art Walk a Moving Experience http://www.travelks.com/blog/post/2011/15/Topeka-s-First-Friday-Art-Walk-a-Moving-Experience/1497/ <img src='http://www.travelks.com/includes/content/images/media/6466734423_d7e6e32148_b.jpg'/><br/>Whether it’s First Friday or Final Friday or even Third Thursday, monthly Art Walks in communities throughout the state provide a terrific opportunity to step inside galleries, studios, and other art venues to discover the talent of local artists. I began Topeka’s First Friday Art Walk last week at the developing North Topeka Arts District on Kansas Avenue where great strides have been made in bringing artists to the neighborhood.
