Topeka has terrible crime problems, and has multiple spots were it stems from through out the city making the whole area a rough place.
Review Mission Township
Topeka is okay nothing to do really, If you are not a middle aged person you pretty much just wait till you are. Not a place for overall happy thoughts.
There isn't much variety in stores. It's mostly big, corporate run businesses..
