The city's proximity to the Kansas River provides visitors with incredible outdoor opportunities, including kayaking, canoeing, river camping, and catfishing. Check out the KAW River Adventures for more information on accessing the Kansas River's amenities. If you are feeling hungry after a long day on the river, be sure to check out the Casa Hernandez Mexican Restaurant or the local Silver Lake Farmers' Market.
Another major attraction to Silver Lake is the event space at Blacksmith Event Centre. This event space is completely renovated and the Reception Hall can accommodate 78 seated and 125 reception/open house style. There's a fully stocked cocktail lounge, available catering, entertainment equipment, and free Wi-Fi! The place really makes this small town feel alive whether it's a wedding, baby shower, birthday, graduation, retirement party, reunion, or business conference!
