This is the world famous Pillsbury Crossing Wildlife Area 6 miles from highway 177 south of Manhattan. In this place an outcropping of flat rocks made crossing the creek a simple matter for horses and wagons. This is a lovely out of the way spot for bird watching or a picnic.
Manhattan Town Center is one...
Manhattan Town Center is one of many places to shop. I liked this mall because of the way the design of it had incorporated features of the town in the entry way. It seems like part of the down town from this angle. For once a mall has helped revitalize the old down town area of a city.
My Becky and the Tuttle Creek...
My Becky and the Tuttle Creek Dam. The Dam measures 7,500 feet long and 157 feet high. During periods of rain the lake will be over 50,000 acres in size. Stop by the visitor center on highway 13 to find out about sailing, boating, fishing, camping, hiking, off roading, and the watchable wildlife around the lake.

Kansas State University has an excellent athletic program and an on going rivalry with Kansas University of Lawrence. The Beach Museum of Art, McCain Auditorium, Nichols Theatre, and the 12 acre Kansas State University Gardens are also there.
Goodnow House is next door to...
Goodnow House is next door to the history museum. Tours are scheduled in the museum. I did not get to take a tour of the Goodnow house because I was only there for the day and ran out of time. I will have to count on my friend 'HNS' from Manhattan to tell me about it some time.

I will have to get the name of the park, but we decided to go fly a kite one day...it took a lot more effort then we initially expected!

Riley County Courthouse in the old down town area of Manhattan. It is closed on weekends so I did not go inside.

At Pillsbury crossing we waded out in the water to take pictures of the waterfall. It is a little off the beaten path for sure but worth the trouble to find.

This log cabin is in City Park. It was built in the early 1900's by citizens who wanted the young people of Manhattan to know what a log cabin was like.
Riley County Historical Museum...
Riley County Historical Museum is at 2005 Claflin Road. I like history a lot so this was a place I had to stop at.
Wolf House Museum at 630...
Wolf House Museum at 630 Fremont was built in 1868. It was once a boarding house. Inside it has been decorated in the style of early 1900's.

This arch is behind the courthouse and is dedicated to a former school teacher. That is my lovely wife, the world's largest leprachaun, standing under it.
