Tonganoxie is a charming little town with a number of modest, well-maintained homes in quiet neighborhoods. It also has a historic downtown, a number of restaurants and bars, some nice parks and schools, and a water park.
We saw families walking and biking to the water park together. The park where we played was really nice, with clean restrooms, excellent play equipment, soccer fields, and tennis courts.
According to the town website, Tonganoxie has doubled in size since 2000. From what we saw, it seems to have a very promising future ahead of it.
Just a little way from the edge of town, the Tonganoxie Historical Society maintains a site with beautiful historic buildings from around the region. We'd like to go back sometime to explore this site.
