A fun way to explore our community and support local businesses is to embark on a cafe crawl. Gather your coffee buddy and hit a few coffee shops you’ve been meaning to visit. Order a seasonal beverage—and maybe a pastry or two—have a seat and soak up each unique vibe. Continue on to local bookstores, which may have cafes of their own, or visit a few bakeries to see what they offer.
Seasonal Comfort Foods
Fall is the perfect season to revisit your favorite comfort food recipes. Soups, stews, casseroles and chili are great options to feed a crowd and warm you up. Whether you prefer to cook at home or enjoy a nice meal at a restaurant, we’ve rounded up a few comfort food recipes plus some places to enjoy a perfect fall meal.
Autumn means it’s time for fall festivals, pumpkin picking and football! This season offers many opportunities to make memories with your family—at a nearby pumpkin patch for hayrides, an apple orchard for apple cider and pie or a cultural experience at a local Oktoberfest. Soak up the mild weather at local art walks, cozy up by a fire pit on a patio or take a day trip to a nearby town!

Message from the Publisher
Mission: To celebrate the good and positive in Topeka, KS.
Goal: Tell beautiful and wonderful stories of our rich past and present.
Inspiriation: "Topeka Pen and Camera Sketches" by Miss Mary E. Jackson. She says it best in her book from 1890, "I have endeavored, in placing this book before the public, to give to strangers some knowledge of our 'Golden City', and to present something of interest to our own citizens as well."
Feedback: I hear time and again with amazement, "I didn't know that was in Topeka!".
My Hope: Our stories will inspire all Topekans to be proud of where they live.
