Overland Park, KS
Looks good on paper...

My husband is a consultant, and we can live anywhere in the midwest we choose. In 2007 we moved to Overland Park for the great schools, inexpensive houses, and proximity to KC. It seemed perfect - but then we met the people! It truly is a mecca for materialistic and the close-minded. Our neighborhood had a high-school-like pecking order. No one was interested in anything but money and showing off. We have lived all over the midwest (WI, MN, IA, IL) and never experienced anything like it. Of course we met some nice people, but the overall feeling was so empty. It doesn't feel like a cohesive town - Just a bunch of suburban neighborhoods scattered about. We couldn't bear for OP to be our daughters' hometown, so we moved to the twin cities in 2011.
