Know Your City Tours

In an effort to improve hospitality and increase guest satisfaction throughout the capital city, Visit Topeka is offering free "Know Your City" training to our local tourism partners. The Know Your City tour increases the ability of hospitality workers such as hotel desk clerks and restaurant servers to make suggestions on things to do, where to go and what resources to use in Topeka. 

The fall Know Your City Tour will be held on August 22 and focus on Arts & Culture. The meeting site will be at Ward-Meade Park at 8:30 am, please arrive early.
