Life is good in Overland Park and Leawood.

Menorah is located in Overland Park, with Leawood, another of Kansas City’s most dynamic suburbs, nearby.  Both cities are known for beautiful residential neighborhoods and unique shopping, cultural, dining and entertainment districts. There’s a wealth of things to do, see and experience here—the variety of a big city with small-town camaraderie.

From rural (and interactive) farmsteads and lush parks to contemporary art museums, Overland Park and Leawood are cities of compelling contrasts. Sure, the only skyscrapers you’ll find in Downtown Overland Park are the heaping whips of meringue on The Upper Crust’s signature pies, but you could spend all day (several, in fact) exploring, shopping and, of course, eating in the charming historic district.  And Leawood’s mixed-use residential, retail and dining destination, Mission Farms, helps set the pace for innovative development.

Take a break from your career’s fast pace with a leisurely stroll or bike ride along the Indian Creek Hike and Bike Trail and revel in Overland Park and Leawood’s picturesque settings. Browse the galleries of renowned Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art. Enjoy eclectic cuisine from Vietnamese to Korean and award-winning barbecue and fried chicken to Italian, Mexican and El Salvadoran.

With some of the most acclaimed school districts in the country, including the Blue Valley School District, world-class Scheels Overland Park Soccer Complex, and miles of paved bike paths and nature trails, Overland Park and Leawood are great places to raise a family.

And of course, we’re not far from the bright lights and buzz of Kansas City—just over the state line is another world to explore. For more information on Overland Park, go to visitoverlandpark.com. For more information on Kansas City, go to visitkc.com.
