Garden City, Kansas Travel Guide

Complete Vacation, Recreation and Tourism Information

The happy-go-lucky Garden City celebrates a world of different cultures with colorful activities, music, dance, and ethnic foods.

There's a festival almost every month here. The traditional Beef Empire Days has been celebrated for more than 35 summers. This is also time for the Hot Air Balloon Classic and Tumbleweed Festival with a South American and Latino flavor.

Autumn is the backdrop for the German Octoberfest and the Mexican Fiesta. And on the second new moon of winter, the Tet Nguyen-Dan Vietnamese New Year celebration begins.

In spring, the Mexican Cinco de Mayo festival arrives. So does the International Festival which blends all the cultures together in a weekend gala.

Some points of interest in town include: Finney Game Refuge, Lee Richardson Zoo, Finney County Historical Museum, Finney County Game Refuge, and Garden City Fun Center.

There are two public golf courses in town ? the 9-hole, Par 36 Golden Locket and the 18-hole, Par 72 Buffalo Dunes. Swimming is available at several locations, but the "Big Pool" at Finnup Center (the largest municipal pool on earth) is a definite must-see! Tennis fans can practice their serves at Finnup Park as well.

Buffalo Refuge Sand Pit offers excellent opportunities for trout fishing. All urban areas in Kansas with populations over 40,000 that have public fishing holes are stocked with hybrid sunfish, wipers, and catfish through the spring and summer months. Supplies are replenished every few weeks. Buffalo Refuge Sand Pit is also stocked with trout. A specific trout-fishing license is required.

Sand & Sage Rifle & Pistol Club has a shooting range for outdoor pistol and rifle, muzzle loading and air gun that is open to the public.

Spectator sports is highlighted by rodeo competitions at various months throughout the year. Garden City Community College athletics puts on a good show for spectators, too, in football and a number of other sports. Their prowess on the fields and courts is something to cheer about!

Garden City, a town that celebrates life, is located in the southwestern quadrant of Kansas.
