What does Manhattan think of Manhattan?

The Manhattan Convention and Visitors Bureau and Chamber of Commerce invited HandsOn Kansas State to participate in the annual Get Around 2 It event, which is aimed at highlighting family opportunities in summer in Manhattan.

HandsOn Kansas State wanted to gather community opinion on areas on need.  We asked two interactive questions, and invited everyone to write in their response.  The responses were pretty enlightening and entertaining- check them out below and comment what YOU like or would improve!
