Manhattan offers unique venues with rich and diverse culinary treats. Cut into a succulent steak for dinner or heat things up with hibachi-style offerings. Perhaps a cocktail in a classy fine dining establishment is more your style; or a good, oldfashioned al fresco gathering with some best buddies.

Unique Jamaican flair? New Yorkstyle pizza? No matter your taste or mood – it’s hard to avoid getting hooked after a fabulous dining experience in The Little Apple®!

BIG LEGENDS That massive figure in City Park? That’s our old pal Johnny … learn more about this Kansas legend The pioneer spirit of Kansas lives large with the legend of Johnny Kaw, the Great Plains’ colossal agrarian. A gigantic 30-foot statue in City Park bears proof of Johnny’s sizably legendary status. Johnny was known to have squared off and won battles against tornadoes, wringing out remnants of the twisters for rain on farm fields, and he threshed acres of wheat with single whips of his massive scythe. Johnny gave rise to world famous Kansas sunflowers by bottling up gallons of sunshine dipped with dandelion roots. Johnny Kaw keeps watch over Manhattan City Park in his size 55 boots and enormous forearms gripping his ever-present sickle. The Johnny Kaw legend was created by Kansas State University horticulture professor George Filinger to mark the 1955 city centennial. Manhattan has a number of long acclaimed landmarks that are such every day standards, and only the most stalwart of Manhattan-ites may know the entire back-stories. We’ll let you in on the secrets. Aggieville: This one’s easy. A four square-block area in the hub of Manhattan that is easily accessible from Kansas State University campus and the Downtown Manhattan/Poyntz Avenue corridor. The university’s origins as an agricultural school – and subsequent initial “Aggies” school nickname -- earned the area its long-distinguished designation. For years, Aggieville was known as the city’s “uptown” area. Businesses observed the district’s 125-year anniversary with a weekend-long celebration in 2014. Bluemont Hill, aka Manhattan Hill: Bluemont College was the forbearer to Kansas State University by four years, and located just east of the school was the prominent hill and highest elevation in the city. This hill overlooks the Big Blue river valley (plus mont, the French language name for mountain). The letters were placed atop the hill in 1927 by the Manhattan Kiwanis club, an homage to the Hollywood sign in the Los Angeles area. CiCo Park: Odd word for a park, huh? Put simply, CiCo Park is a cooperative agreement by the City of Manhattan and Riley County government, along with USD 383 (which maintains the football stadium). And thus, CiCo Park, which is contained within 97 acres and includes ball fields, a community center, county fairgrounds (Riley County Fair), fitness trail, football stadium, playground, skate park and even a rodeo arena.

K-Hill: Stand on the veranda of Flint Hills Discovery Center and peer out toward the Kansas River. On the opposite river bank stands a high-reaching hill, and with 80-foot-high letters “K” and “S” for Kansas State (University). Known locally as K-Hill because of the letters, engineering students embedded the letters there nearly a century ago back when the summit was known as Prospect Hill. Tradition holds for students to whitewash the letters each year to keep them in bold, sanitary condition. And no, the “U” has never been added ... for unknown reasons.
