See yourself in Topeka, the capital city of Kansas! Just a 45-minute drive from Kansas City, Topeka has all your family needs for an unforgettable time. From family friendly travel that both parents and kids will enjoy, to budget friendly getaways and tons to explore, Topeka is just missing one thing — YOU!
Entertain the kids with a trip to the Topeka Zoo. Stroll through the surrounding Gage Park, home to the Gage Park carousel, the city’s beloved mini train, the Kansas Children’s Discovery Center — and the perfect place for a park picnic. In the mood to explore local historic sites? Then, hop over to the Kansas State Capitol, which stands 17 feet taller than the U.S. Capitol in D.C. Climb to the top of the Kansas Capitol dome for one of the best views in Topeka. And don’t stop there! Uncover a history of courage and
determination at the Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site, a stop on the U.S. Civil Rights Trail. Round out your day at Lake Shawnee, before grabbing a bite to eat at one of Topeka’s many unique eateries and breweries. Gourmet grilled cheese, anyone? And that’s just the beginning.
