Beloit CourthouseThirty minutes north of Wichita is the city of Hesston, which is home to Hesston College. Along with the college, Hesston provides a strong K-12 school system and many activities for various age groups. One of the main attractions is the Dyck Arboretum of the Plains. This facility exhibits wildflowers that can be found all over the state of Kansas. There are also numerous parks, the Hesston Golf Park, the Stone Creek Nursery, and the Giesel Greenhouse.

Hesston hosts a Homecoming celebration, the first weekend in October, featuring guest speakers, entertainment and food. Each April, Hesston holds the Emma Creek Classic, a 5k run that attracts people from all over the state.
