Noelle has been browsing the www.visittopeka.com website and is excited about her visit to TopCon, Porubsky’s Deli & Tavern and Topeka. “I”m seeing all the great shops you guys have. I might need to bring an extra suitcase! haha! I’ve never been to Kansas, but have an obsession with The Wizard of Oz (I know…cheesy), but also with Almost Famous. Love the scene that takes place in Topeka. It will be great to finally visit.”
