Certainly, life in the expansive center of the country is a little bit different from life on the coastlines or in a bustling city. But those who are looking for a home for rent in Kansas City with a taste of the cosmopolitan lifestyle should be sure to check out a few homes in Manhattan, Kansas. Nicknamed "The Little Apple," the city owes its plethora of fun activities, late-night hangouts and entertainment venues -- indeed, New York City in miniature -- to the influence of Kansas State University, which makes its home in the college town. Those who rent a home in Manhattan are sure to find some aspect of local culture that appeals to their need for excitement.
While college kids certainly make their presence felt in Manhattan, the city has also been named as one of Money magazine's top 10 places in America to retire young. Anyone with a little bit of leisure time can leave their Manhattan rental and find something to do. The city is home to the Colbert Hills Golf Course, which continually appears on Golf Digest's list of the best courses in Kansas. Youngsters can get in on the action as well, as the course hosts the Earl Woods National Youth Golf Academy.
Residents in Manhattan, Kansas, homes with a larger appetite for excitement might want to visit Aggieville, a shopping center that is chock-full of bars, many of which are known for their live music. Other attractions include the Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art, the Country Stampede Music Festival -- the largest music festival in Kansas -- and the KSU sporting events held at the Bill Snyder Family Football Stadium and the Bramlage Coliseum.
