Review of Olathe, Kansas

My formative years...
Star Rating - 4/15/2009
As a graduating senior at Kansas State University, I can honestly say that having grown up in Olathe, Kansas I couldn't be more happy with the experience I had there. The schools are outstanding, the cost of living is tremendously low, Kansas City is gorgeous and well maintained, the international airport is the most efficient in the United States, the nightlife is booming for the younger crowed, restaurants are excellent, and the culture is very eclectic.

Having lived there almost my entire youth, I can say first hand, that it is a great place to grow up and raise a family. If you were to move from the east or west coasts you would be amazed at how far your dollar can take you in the greater Kansas City metro area. A 1,300 sq. ft. home in the heart of Anaheim would cost you around $4,000,000 and around $80,000 in Kansas City.

Suffice it to say, I loved my experience in Olathe, Kansas and plan on heading back in the future.
