University towns are historically popular among retiree’s, in part because of the endless built-in activities the community provides. The city features Bill Snyder Family Stadium home to the Kansas State University Wildcat football team, one of the premiere sports venues in all of college sports. Tuttle Creek Reservoir and the Konza Prairie offer excellent recreational opportunities for outdoor enthusiast, while Aggieville and the Downtown business districts provide top notch dining, entertainment and shopping. Less the 15 miles away is historical Ft. Riley which is currently home to the Big Red One First Infantry Division. With a daytime population of 25,000 people, it is another major draw to the greater Manhattan community.
