Kansas, U.S.A.
ALONG THE RIVER
Welcome to Topeka, Kansas.
Topeka is the capital of Kansas and the seat of Shawnee County. Situated along the Kansas River, Topeka is home to around 127,500 people. The city was named Topeka in 1855, after a Native American expression meaning Place where we dug potatoes. Topeka offers plenty of attractions, including several historically significant landmarks. The city had a pivotal role in American history, which can be explored in the venues like the Charles Curtis House Museum and the Old Prairie Town. If you truly want to know about the important role Topeka played in the nation's war for freedom, take the Brown v. Brown Historic Tour, which highlights historical events taking place in Kansas. Visitors can bring kids for a day of scientific exploration at the Kansas Children's Discovery Center, while arts connoisseurs may indulge in exhibitions in the brand new arts district or revel in first-class state performances at Topeka Civic Theater and Academy. The latter is the nation's oldest continually operating community dinner and theater, and features amazing musicals, dramas and comedies. Music lovers can listen to classics like Bach and Beethoven when the Topeka Symphony Orchestra delights the audience with magnificent tunes; while sports fans can head to the Kansas Expocentre events facility for major events. Outdoorsy folks can enjoy the fresh Kansas air and sunshine in one of the expansive parks, stroll the many trails or gaze at the tranquil waters of Lake Shawnee. Check out the many animals at Topeka Zoological Park or experience the thrill of your life at the Heartland Park Topeka Raceway the choice is yours!
