Things To Do In Topeka, Kansas

Within the land of the prairie, there lies a city teeming with pivotal points of history, unparalleled novelties and attractions, and natural beauty that pairs perfectly with Kansas’ notably expansive horizon. Topeka has something for everyone. Art enthusiasts will love the NOTO Arts & Entertainment District and can enjoy a variety of murals and galleries. Foodies and craft beverage connoisseurs can find a diverse selection of brews and bites to explore. And make sure to visit Downtown Topeka and one of our great entertainment venues while you’re in town.

Topeka has a bright legacy all its own when one considers its ties to the Civil Rights Movement (see Brown v. Board of Education National Historical Park); its small but undeniable influence on an influential 20th-century daredevil (see the Evel Knievel Museum); and its dedication to green and recreational spaces dedicated for the public to enjoy (visit Gage Park, Historic Old Prairie Town at Ward-Meade or Lake Shawnee). To learn and experience more about how Topeka has impacted U.S. Civil Rights, be sure to also visit the Equality House, the Kansas State Capitol Building, and the Kansas Museum of History.

Not only a Capital City that leads in politics and business, Topeka shines for its diversity of thought and experience. When venturing around Topeka, you will quickly recognize the warm, inviting nature of our community. We look forward to dazzling you with new adventures, good food, and great times to ensure we are always on your shortlist for future getaways.
