"One of the cleanest towns around" Shawnee by ElAbuelo

Shawnee Travel Guide: 25 reviews and 54 photos

We lived in an apartment in Shawnee (also called Shawnee Mission by some maps), and we worked in Overland Park, Kansas. Both of these towns are adjacent to Kansas City, Missouri, but are very different than KC. The towns that butt up to Kansas City, MO, are clean, neat, beautiful, with the exception of Kansas City, Kansas, which is dirty and looks like a slum. There are lots of things there to do and see. We attended my only big league baseball game in KC, MO, went to the Hobo Convention in Atcheson, Kansas (Atcheson, Topeka and the Santa Fe...), visited Amelia Earhart's childhood home, toured the Arabia Steamboat Museum (sank in 1856, recovered in 1989) [great place!], saw a wonderful horse show at the Royal American Arena, saw Leavenworth Prison in Leavenworth, KS. Nice place to visit. Good food, nice rural communities all around.
