Foodie

Mennonite Heritage

From bierocks to zwiebacks, Newton’s Mennonite Heritage is alive and well in its food traditions. Find bierocks — traditional beef and cabbage stuffed buns — on the menu at several restaurants, including daily at The Breadbasket. Looking to sample more? Breadbasket hosts a full German buffet on Friday and Saturday nights. Local festivals also feature many traditional Mennonite and German flavors, too.

2 Doughnuts

Looking for something sweet? Druber’s is a downtown institution with late-night hours, frequented by college students, locals, and Amtrak passengers looking for food and coffee in the middle of the night. Open at 11:30 most nights, it serves glazed and cake donuts and local favorite peanut butter rolls until 1 p.m.

No art lover’s trip to Newton would be complete without a visit to the Blue Sky Sculpture. Listed as one of 8 Wonders of Kansas Art, this sculpture is located in Centennial Park and captures the whimsy of the everchanging Kansas sky. Enjoy it from a distance at the observation bench, or check it out up close. Steps lead up to the sculpture’s platform.

Chisholm Trail Born a trail head on the Chisholm Trail in 1871, Newton’s first years were rowdy. Though little remains of the cattle trail days, a few significant sites are still visible. A new historical marker tells the story of the Hide Park Massacre, and swales from the running of the cattle can still be seen near the Kauffman Museum in North Newton. For more information about local sites, visit www. ToNewton.com/chisholm-trailhistory.html or pick up a copy of the Historic Newton Driving Tour map.

For more information about history and museums, see pages 10-11.

Outdoor enthusiast

Sand Creek Trail

Known as the “Trail of Two Cities,” Sand Creek Trail winds along its namesake creek from the heart of Newton into North Newton. Round trip, the trail covers 7 miles. In Newton, it is mostly paved and features several parks and playgrounds, restrooms, a boat dock for paddlers and water fountains for people and pets. In North Newton, interpretive signs tell about the area’s history and heritage and a dirt path leads into a wooded grove at Bethel College’s Memorial Garden.

Host site of the last-ever USGA Amateur Public Links tournament in 2014, this course regularly hosts NCAA tournaments and hosts its first pro tournament in May 2019. Look for special rates and public tournaments throughout the year.

There is much history about Newton’s beginnings along the Chisholm Trail and the Santa Fe Railroad mainline that is memorialized in those historic districts. ­— Barth Hague, Newton City Commission

If taking a “food tour” in Newton was a thing, I would encourage every visitor in Newton to take it! Our community is so rich in different flavors and styles of food that I believe makes Newton stand out. Newton caters to all cravings, so no matter what you’re in the mood for, there’s an opportunity to enjoy the unique tastes of Newton’s pizzas, soups and salads, homemade German food, the infamous peppernuts, Italian food, coffee and pastries… the menu items go on! Not only will you leave fully satisfied by the food, but you will have had the chance to meet the small business owners who are the heart behind these restaurants and leave with the sense of the amazing community that is Newton. — Courtney Critchfield, Newton Area Chamber of Commerce Newton Visitor Guide • 13

Ask the locals ... What’s a great snack to take to the park? Spicy Pretzels 1 regular size bag of pretzel sticks 1 tsp. cayenne pepper 1 tsp. lemon pepper 1 ½ tsp. garlic powder 1 package Hidden Valley Ranch dry mix ¾ cup canola oil Gallon size zip-top bag Put the pretzels into a gallon size zip-top bag. Mix cayenne pepper, lemon pepper, garlic powder, ranch and canola oil together and pour mixture over the pretzels in the bag. It is best if you can leave the pretzels in the bag overnight but a couple hours will work, too. Shake the bag occasionally to help mix the seasonings with the pretzels. Spread them out on a large baking sheet and bake at 200 degrees for 40 minutes. ­— Jackie Krehbiel, Newton Parks Department
