Hays is my hometown. I lived there for 23 years. I like the fact that it's a safe place to raise your children however I feel that there's not a lot of opportunity there. The wages aren't very good compared to the cost of living. They have no shopping and groceries are over priced. Instead of bringing in places to shop they just bring in restaurants
I love the college town experience. The population here is a fair amount but not overwhelming. The college students are able to support larger restaurants even though it is a small town. I love how polite everyone is, even though we are all stressed out from college as well as our organization involvement. Overall, I would recommend Hays, Kansas to anyone.
Love the college atmosphere always something great to do. The night life is well live, the schools are excellent and I love that it only take me about 10 minutes to get to any location I need to be.
Quiet college town. Always something going on. There is no short supply of activities on the weekends. Bustling town all for the young and the older.
there are a varied of eating and shopping places, but there are way too many drunks and party houses.
I like the college life. There are not many distractions out there. So it is good to focus and work here. Working out is a great distraction here too, since the weather is sunny (and windy) most of the time. It is a socially healthy environment. The only downfall that I see is the amount and quality of restaurants in the area. Eating healthy can become a challenge
Hays is a great place to raise a family. Clean local parks. Great schools. The local college FHSU offers affordable education to further develop oneself. A technical college and a award winning cosmetology school. A diverse assortment of activities for family.
I like the city overall. We have a nice accepting community. I feel right at home here. I wish they would fix some of the roads by the train tracks. They are really rough on my vehicle.
People in Hays are nice. We have great restaurants in Hays that includes Asian food, German food, and American food. We have a shopping center that is located in the middle of the town. We have various clothing and food store around main street. I would like to see Asian market in Hays in the future.
Hays is a nice quaint town of about 14,000. There is a division 2 college named Fort Hays State University. There is also a technical college there as well. The town has various restaurants including, Gellas, a micro brewery, sake 2 me, a sushi joint, and TK's smokehouse a BBQ place. Many of the towns people consist of college students and farmers. A very great place to live.
This place is so much fun! I have only been here for about 5 months but it has grown to be my second home and it is a small and beautiful place!
Very safe and a great small town feel. Isn't the best for entertainment or any of that. There isn't much a reason to live here unless connected to the college or hospital. Good food though.
The town is nice enough, there are always plenty of places to rent and plenty of places hiring but the large number of university students has driven up the rental costs for most houses and the apartments aren't much better. However the people are friendly enough in my experience and there are several bars which act like clubs for night life. Though I have been told that one of them should be avoided by ladies.
It is a fairly safe place to live. Low crime rate.
It is a safe place to live, with friendly people. It is in the process of growing with more hotels and places to dine. It is a slow process though.
It's a cultural melting pot. There are a variety of activities to do a places to go to such as: shopping outlets, restaurants, hotels, libraries, parks, etc. The residents are usually friendly and the atmosphere is very upbeat, yet subtle at the same time. It's a convenient college for any graduated high school student who is interested in seeking a degree for a decent tuition. And, it's a great small city for a family to settle down in.
The fast food restaurants are not great, but there are a few good mom and pop restaurants in the area.
