They say travel is good for your brain. New experiences, meeting new people, hearing another language, tasting new foods and learning new customs actually grow the brain. Being exposed to all of that can even make you more empathetic -- more willing to understand someone else. Personally, I’d say it also lets you get more jokes, make friends and most importantly, it helps you better understand that each of us is part of a much broader world. 

Tasting Topeka's Take: Capital City Family & Food Truck Festival

The second annual Capital City Family and Food Truck Festival was today, Saturday June 11th, 2016, in Gage Park. I've been looking forward to this ever since last year when the first one ended. I knew that this year would be something to look forward to. How can you go wrong with over 20 food trucks from three different states, entertainment for the entire family and a beautiful summer day? You just can't.

Tourism works for Topeka: National Travel and Tourism Week

It’s a great time to be a Topekan.

Downtown revitalization, NOTO growth, the half-cent sales tax extension, master plans taking shape everywhere from the zoo and Expocentre to the Topeka Riverfront and more events than any time in recent memory are signs we are a community on the move.

At the conclusion of National Travel and Tourism Week, as we gear up for summer visitors and reflect on the positive effects of travel and tourism on our community, Visit Topeka is proud to contribute to that positive energy. We also want to celebrate each of you who works to make the visitor experience a positive one in Topeka.
