Review of Olathe, Kansas

In Johnson County, KS since 1977
Star Rating - 6/2/2015
Lived in Olathe since about 1980.

I can say Olathe is a great place to make a living, live life etc. It's one of those places that the UPS driver can leave a package on your doorstep & your package will still be there the next morning.

However, Johnson County is also a magnet for people trying to escape the higher crime infestation of Kansas City. Also, I work in Olathe & about %30 of the people I work with live in Kansas City. & %90 of them have a suspended driver's license &/or don't have a car.

Then, there are those that move to Olathe from KC, that bring there buddies with them.

So, I must say to anyone considering moving here to keep in mind of the great stigma that Kansas City has upon Olathe & all of Johnson County.
