An Apartment to Fit Your Needs
Depending on the part of town, rental rates in Shawnee can range from so-cheap-they’re-practically-paying-you-to-live-there to moderately expensive. Take your time looking around so that you can get the most for you hard-earned money. Some of the newer apartments may cost a little more, but they may be eco-friendly or allow renters access to a state-of-the-art fitness room, and cheaper apartments can end up costing you a bit more when it comes to making up for all that they lack.
One thing that Shawnee newbies will want to bring is their bicycle. This city is known as a bicycle friendly community and has nearly a hundred miles worth of bikeable streets and trails. Bike rather than drive, and you’ll be saving the planet as well as your failing cardio.
Green, Greener Greenest
Even when it’s too cold or rainy to bike from one side of town to another, renters in Shawnee will still be able to be part of one of the most sustainable, environmentally friendly cities around. Shawnee has made conserving energy and natural resources a top priority, and many of the newer apartment buildings make use of materials that insulate better, water systems reduce waste, and energy systems that take advantage of Shawnee’s ample sunlight.

Many of the restaurants and grocery stores serve locally grown produce and meat, and quite a number of stores in town are owned locally.

An Evening Out

Heading downtown to meet up with (or to meet) a few new friends is a great way to spend a quiet evening, but what about those evenings that demand a little more pomp and ceremony? What about the birthdays, Fridays, and the just-have-to-get-out-and-dance days? Renters who live in Shawnee will only be about fifteen minutes from downtown Kansas City, Missouri. This happening city is full of arts venues, sports games, high-end restaurants, and after-hours clubs that keep the party going well into morning. After a wild and crazy night, renters can take a cab back to their quiet city and enjoy the serenity of life in Shawnee.
