Welcome to Hutchinson

Located on the beautiful Kansas Prairie, Hutchinson is your one-stop destination for family fun and adventure. Here, you can catch a basketball tournament, be immersed in the history of the space race, head underground for a subterranean adventure, zip down a waterslide, shop at a trendy boutique, and dine at one of our locally-owned restaurants.

With world-class attractions, entertainment, culture, and outdoor recreation - Hutchinson has something for everyone.

Families will enjoy exploring the Cosmosphere’s hands-on science exhibits, splashing around in our free water parks, savoring a picnic at the zoo, exploring our nature center, taking a bike ride, and cheering on their favorite sports teams.

Outdoor enthusiasts will find that Hutchinson is the perfect spot to set up camp when spending the weekend fishing, biking, or hiking.

Thrill seekers can also find their home in Hutchinson. Prepare to head 650-feet underground to explore the dark caverns of a working salt mine or meet exotic wildlife at the Hedrick Exotic Animal Farm.

Those who simply want to relax will enjoy staying in one of our newly built or renovated hotels, having a spa treatment in town, playing a round of golf, and ending the day at one of our fine restaurants.

Whatever you are looking for – you’ll find it in Hutchinson, Kansas.
