Good memories - 1/12/2016
I lived in your city briefly this past year of 2015. Liked it. The cost was a bit too high, but generally you have a decent town compared to some places I've visited. I am in Pueblo CO right now because of my job. Filthiest city I've ever seen. Manhattan, on the other hand, is nice and clean. I have fond memories of your town. You are the best, and cleanest small town in Kansas that I have been in. May visit you again sometime. Read More

Great City - 10/29/2014
Manhattan is one of the best educational environments I have ever seen. The local school district is filled with passionate employees and the facilities are modern and well-maintained. Also in town are 3 wonderful colleges, Kansas State University, Manhattan Area Technical College, and Manhattan Christian Read More

Really depend on who you are and what you're looki - 7/26/2012
Manhattan is a wonderful place to live if you are thinking about retiring here, want a family away from the big city, or if you are a college student. Because it is a small, peaceful, city in Kansas there are a lot of older people that come here to retire and a lot of families that want their kids to grow up away from the city. However, Manhattan is home to Kansas State University (Im a student there!) so being a college town makes it beam with young energy as well. But, for young people looking to go up in the world and looking for excitement...no. No, no, no, and throw in another no just in case. It is quite boring after a while and there are definitely no opportunities for career growth here. Nightlife is very limited, though at least not non-existent. It is very safe, but police are...kind of out of control. I think they are just bored out of their minds because there is virtually no crime so they make it up, and they will stop you for the stupidest reasons so watch out for them. Read More

Military- College Town - 9/17/2009
I only lived in Manhattan, KS for 11 months. This city is seriously in the middle of no where, but there are a lot of things to do there. Lots of scenic driving and hiking, movie theater, decent size mall, public pool, ann a nice size city park. This place is family- AND college Read More

College Town - 5/11/2009
Manhattan is an undiscovered gem of a college town. The cost of living is quite reasonable. I remember that when we first arrived here I asked my husband how long we had to stay. I have since let loose all my coastal prejudices and have become charmed by Manhattan.

Manhattan sits in the Flint Hills. We have woodlands, lakes, undisturbed tall grass prairie, good fishing, and a mild climate. I've been quite happy here for the past 15 years, and am no longer sure that moving away for retirement will find us a better Read More
