The city is home to Kansas State University, Manhattan Area Technical College and Manhattan Christian College as well as a strong K-12 school system and Mercy Hospital. Manhattan is a community where the young thrive, but it is not limited to youth. It recently was noted as one of the "Top 10 Places to Retire" by Money Magazine.
