What Bert Has To Say About Topeka Metro Area

Topeka, the capital of Kansas, is also an agricultural, industrial and transportation center serving a large portion of north and central Kansas. Highlights in the traditionally laid-out downtown include the statehouse, Kansas Museum of History, Brown vs. Board of Education historic site, and Heartland Park, a state-of-the-art motorsports complex. Costs of living and housing prices are low, particularly for a capital city. But property crime rates are high for the region and projected job and income growth are low. That said, a low cost of living brings a high Buying Power Index. There isn’t much to do, and the area has lagged behind other Kansas cities aesthetically, socially and economically. Excellent entertainment and cultural amenities are available in the university town of Lawrence, 20 miles east, and in the Kansas City area.
