However, the fact remains that crime is currently more than just an issue, it is a fact of life, which is plaguing the city.

Before moving to Topeka ask yourself why you’re moving and what you’re looking for. Once you know look for the neighborhood with the lowest noise and crime rate.

Topeka is a capital city that feels more like a small city. There are many parts of Topeka, all of which offer their own history and culture. The city has grown over its lifetime, but within the last five years has expanded to include a rich collection of antique shops and art galleries.
