Relaxed living in Overland Park

Overland Park stretches out like a finger, going from the southern edge of Kansas City to the rolling Kansas plains. An affluent and pretty place, it oozes workaday charm from its Midwestern blocks, and has long drawn visitors to The Sunflower State with the promise of low-key relaxation, wholesome family pursuits, and a range of top-notch Overland Park vacation rentals. The latter go from sprawling estate homes with acres of land to stylish condos on the edge of the city's golf clubs, all of which are within easy reach of downtown Kansas City to boot.

Something for the whole family in Overland Park

From petting zoos with animal workshops for the kids and pretty gardens peppered with picnic spots for the romance seekers, to Nicklaus-designed golf courses and local farmers' markets, there's never a shortage of close-by activities to get stuck into in Overland Park. And if you do ever fancy something a little livelier, the heart of Kansas City beckons just a short drive up I-35, where theater districts and acclaimed culture museums mingle with BBQ joints and Vietnamese pho houses.

The gardens and farms of Overland Park

Children won't be disappointed by the regular workshops and history immersion visits that take place at the Deanna Rose Children's Farmstead. Perfect for the whole family, it's got chime gardens, fishing shacks, turn-of-the-century barns, hayrides, and oodles more agrarian attractions. Meanwhile, the Overland Park Arboretum and Botanical Gardens beckon for those with Overland Park vacation rentals on the south side of town. That's 300 acres worth of rocky bluffs, waterfalls, dragonfly-topped ponds, and colorful plant life, all with nature trails and picnic spots to boot.

Chase the Indian Summer in Overland Park

Overland Park and the whole of Kansas is known for having 4 distinct seasons. Winter can be cold and summer can be swelteringly hot, which leaves the spring and fall as the top times to look for Overland Park vacation rentals. In fact, it’s the months of September, October, and November that are usually the best in terms of weather. The Arboretum's tree clusters will look wonderful then, and you can often expect a warm Indian Summer that makes the local rodeos and harvest celebrations a joy to visit.

Between Missouri and Kansas in Overland Park

Overland Park sits right on the edge of Kansas State, where the land and the city give way to Missouri to the east. The location means that the south side of town is gradually feathered out into the rolling plains that dominate much of the heart of America, and it's largely covered with endless swathes of farmland and prairie. That's all broken occasionally by preserves like the Amarugia Highlands Conservation Area and the Linn County Park & Marina, which both have fishing spots, boating waters, and short hiking trails.
