A dazzling gem in the heart of the prairie -- let Topeka surprise you.

  • Family-Friendly
  • Riverfront
  • Parks
  • Capital City
  • Historic

Located along the Kansas River and known for its cheerful tulips, Topeka is a Midwestern gem that combines a busy, bustling downtown -- this is the capital city of Kansas and the seat of Shawnee County, after all -- with the natural beauty of the prairie. Topeka is also a college town, home to Washburn University -- a public university established in 1865.

Founded in 1854, Topeka has long played an important role in US history. It was an important part of the Oregon Trail, with a ferry located in Topeka that helped the travelers cross the river. The Brown v. Board of Education, a court ruling that ended public school segregation in 1954, involved a school in Topeka, and today the Brown v. Board of Education Historic Site features galleries, special exhibits, and tours.

Choosing to rent a Topeka apartment means you'll be able to enjoy the city's fantastic festivals, including the Tulip Time Festival, as well as its many destinations and attractions, including the Topeka Zoo, the Kansas Museum of History, and the historic Old Prairie Town at Ward-Meade Historic Site.
