Park
“Topeka's zoo is in Gage Park, as well as a lovely rose garden, a train, and the Helen Hocker Theater, which has shows put on by young people. There is also a great swimming pool and an old fashioned carousel. The Bark Park has two separate areas for large and small dogs, and is popular with dog owners”

Zoo
“The Topeka zoo has around 300 animals and includes what was one of the first indoor tropical rain forests in the United States. There are lions, bears, elephants, tigers, giraffes, foxes, and so many reptiles, amphibians, and birds! Head across the street to play at Gage Park when you’ve had your fill of the animals. ”

History Museum
“The History Museum is a great spot for sunny or rainy days. When the weather is nice you can walk their trails, check out their old one-room schoolhouse, and play on their playground outside. On rainy days head inside to play in their train cars, dress up in their play clothes, walk through their interactive galleries, and learn more about our beautiful state. Check their website for hours of operation.”

Visit the Mott House next door, formerly known as the Capital City Equality Center, and also known as the Trans House. Great photo opps abound, especially for group photos! ”

“This landmark and historical place is the Kansas Governor’s mansion. It was built in the year 1928 and given to the state in 1955, but it did not become the governor’s residence until 1962. Today it is the main attraction of a French architectural estate that oversees the Kansas River. The estate has several ponds, gardens as well as hiking trails.”

“Greg Fox learned the restaurant business in Topeka, New York City and Nashville. After returning to his native Topeka, Fox opened RowHouse Restaurant in 2007, where the menu is ever changing. Set over three floors and the outdoor courtyard of a historic house, RowHouse Restaurant is intimate, elegant and cool. It’s the perfect location for parties of two to 12; each dining room is inviting and unique. A recent menu featured featured an appetiser of chilled strawberry soup with orange and pepper whipped cream, followed by an entrée of honey balsamic glazed beef with summer vegetable succotash and sweet tea cream pie for dessert. See the website for a list of Greg’s own favourite restaurants”
