Overland Park Travel Guide: 81 reviews and 160 photos

Overland Park, Kansas, is a fast-growing suburb of Kansas City, Missouri. This sprawling "edge city" features mile after mile of upscale housing, great shopping, a full range of dining and hotels. OP has changed from the days in which it was merely a bedroom community and has become a commercial center within itself.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:I found a quiet and pleasant neighborhood in which to live.
  • Cons:Land-grubbing suburban sprawl at its worst.
  • In a nutshell:Stay in Overland Park while seeing the sights of the greater Kansas City area.

    You should come over with the pumpkins :)) to the local Festival. It must be the colour that makes them so photogenic. Great restaurant tips Frank.

    Hi Frank, thanks for showing me your home, I particularly enjoyed your gastronomic tour, sounds a bit tasty, the old taste buds were working overtime. Good informative and anecdotal tips - thanks.
