It is a little college town located in the state of Kansas and predominantly known for being home to Kansas State University. Thanks to this, the city has a fair share of the young population that contributes highly to its culture and vividity. The entire city is divided into two areas- Aggieville and Downtown. While the former is replete with bars, shops and restaurants, the latter is packed with historic architecture and old places. The shops in Aggieville are pretty trendy and often packed with the youngsters who flock here for hangouts. It is a small town, hence can be easily covered on foot, in case you wish to mingle with its culture.
