Colby is a small city and the county seat of Thomas County, Kansas. A post office was established in the middle of Thomas County in 1882, and in April 1884, a local land assessor and preacher named J.R. Colby obtained a patent to set up a new town in the area. He officially acquired the land in March of the following year, and a month later, the town charter was issued by the Kansas Secretary of State. Colby was named the county seat in 1885 and officially incorporated as a city in 1886. Over the next couple of years, two different railroads would reach the new community, leading to modest economic development.

Colby remains a quaint town to this day with a 2023 population of approximately 5,600. The city is known as a progressive agricultural community, and the most famous landmark is Cooper Barn, which is the largest barn in the state. Colby also hosts the annual Plains Music Festival in the city center, which features plenty of great live music, food trucks and kids' activities. If you're looking for outdoor fun, you could stop by Fike Park for a day of picnicking, tennis or volleyball. Or, if the weather's hot, you might prefer to head to Colby Aquatic Park to cool off and enjoy some family fun.

For some leisurely outdoor recreation, you could play a round of golf at Meadow Lake Golf Course. It's also worth strolling through the Thomas County Farmers Market to pick up some delicious, fresh produce.

When your stomach starts to rumble, consider stopping by the City Limits Bar & Grill for a tasty steak. Then for dessert, you could make your way to the family-owned Goodies and Things.
