Overland Park, Kansas
There's good reason that Overland Park is always cited as one of the best places to live by CNN and Money magazine. It's an inviting and sophisticated city of around 175,000 people, and the second largest city in Kansas. It was originally plotted by a forward thinking developer in the early 1900s. His vision of a park like setting while allowing for expansion of commerce, schools shopping and residential neighborhoods worked, and today, Overland Park is a sought after area for living.
Only twenty minutes from downtown Kansas City, it is far more than a commuter town. It has a Midwestern hometown feel that is perfect for singles and for families alike. Whether you choose an Overland Park apartment in one of the older or one of the newer sections, you will love how this town feels.
The real gem of Overland Park is the Arboretum and Botanical Garden. Not only is it a pleasant place to while away an afternoon strolling, cooking out or studying the plant life, it is at the front of environmental and ecological issues.
There are plenty of parks offering every type of outdoor recreation and the Deanna Rose Children's Farmstead is a perennial favorite petting zoo for kids. The downtown historic district has undergone revitalization and is a cultural and shopping area not to be missed.
The New Theatre is very popular as a dinner theatre, and if you're a golfer, the city has a number of very well designed golf courses. Major museums and other cultural venues are readily available the short distance away in Kansas City. Once in your Overland Park apartment, you'll want to explore all you can.
Rate the Barbecue
Since this area of Kansas is famous for its barbecue, you'll want to try the local versions. Stop into Fiorella's Jack Stack for number one rated ribs in the whole area. Rate it against Hayward's Pit Barbecue, a local institution.
For real local flavor, you should go to Mildred's Coffee House in the old downtown area. It's right next to the clock tower and serves up fantastic homemade pastries. You'll also find an excellent selection of ethnic places and none of them are bound to be too far from your Overland Park apartment.
Drinks and Theatre
There's a large range of nightlife to be found in Overland Park. From Martin's Melodramatic Theatre (get your hisses and boos ready) to the New Theatre productions, you'll also find live entertainment at places like the Oak Bar and Mike's Tavern.
