Heading about 27 miles east on I-70 will take you to the lovely college town of Lawrence, KS. Here you'll find two outlet malls, a neat downtown to explore, the University of Kansas campus, and Haskell Indian Junior College.
If you feel like rambling even further from home base, keep going and less than an hour from Topeka, you'll find yourself in Kansas City, Missouri. Here you can enjoy the one-of-a-kind Plaza Shopping District, the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, the Kansas City Museum of History and Science, the Miniature Museum, the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art and Design, the Kansas City Zoo, and the Harry S Truman Presidential Library and Museum, in nearby Independence, Missouri.
And as you are zooming your way to Kansas City if you need a stretch break, be sure and stop at the Topeka Travel Center, on the Turnpike 5 miles east of Topeka, 785-379-0200. Here you will find one of the fun to explore Kansas Originals Market & Gallery.
