Garden City is city full of rich history and a diverse culture. A welcoming community ready to move forward as a regional hub in southwest Kansas. A nationally ranked junior college (Garden City Community College), two regulation golf courses - Buffalo Dunes Golf Course and The Golf Club at Southwind, both with national accolades, the world largest hand dug pool (also known as &The Big Pool&), Lee Richardson Zoo, a zoo that compares with any city in the state and open to walkthrough traffic without any charge due to amazing benefactors who see the value in keeping this attraction open to all as an educational and recreational facility.

Garden City is progressive in the alternative energy fields and a dominant force in the agricultural base of our state. You can see this as you travel from any direction into our city, passing as you come in the fields of golden wheat and the tall stalks of corn that line our highways. This is only a small part that Garden City plays in the state and the nation's agricultural community.

Beef is king in Garden City and you can experience this from the beginning at the family farm and feedlots to the processing plants and then to some of the most mouthwatering steaks that will ever cross your lips.

There is a certain kind of pride that you will experience in Garden City that can't be found anywhere else. Garden City is a 'self-reliant attitude' and a 'willingness to help your neighbor without asking' kind of town. Garden City is a place where art and life intertwine. Diversity and acceptance is practiced daily and obstacles are overcome and opportunity is born. Garden City is a micro-metropolitan on the cusp of growth and ready to face the challenges ahead.

The Finney County Convention and Visitors Bureau invites you to come experience the flavors and colors of Garden City and southwest Kansas. With a proud history and bright future we want you to enjoy your stay in Garden City and Holcomb.
