We are a family of four. Two young children and two dogs. I'm a Real Estate agent and my husband works in Logistics all over the country. We moved here about five years ago for his job and really like the area and community. We have lived and traveled all over the country. (and world).
We currently live in a small town in the country, if you head into Manhattan there are lots of hiking trails in the Konza Prairie/ Flint Hills. There is also the Kansas River where you can canoe, kayak, float, and fish. A little farther drive is Milford Lake where you can do all that and can rent boats. Manhattan is home to K-State, if you like sports you can catch a football or basketball game during those seasons. They also have a beautiful garden, it's free and open to the public. To learn more about the Midwest the Discovery Center is a museum that is worth checking out.
