    I moved to Basehor in the summer of 2013 just before freshman year. I had just moved from Hawaii, being in the military, Kansas was a drastic change from tropical beach weather. Diversity is very little here also, but its still a fun and friendly town. The town kind of revolves around the High school which is really cool, people come out to the football soccer and basketball games, which are really good teams, basketball and soccer have been state runner ups within the last couple of years. economically, the town is pretty diverse, from poor, to wealthy. There is nice shopping here in town, mostly restaurants. Although 15 minuets away is a large shopping plaza, and we are only within a 45 minuet drive to major to college sport entertainment, and from Kansas City. Basehor has the best of two worlds in my oppinion. Not to cramped like the city, but close enough to it to enjoy what the city has to offer.
    I love the schools and nice neighborhoods. No crime or issues in this little town. Full of diversity and growing bigger every year.
    Good place to raise a family. Small town with not too much going on. It's nearby places to go see/spend time with the family but you always get to go home and get away from the big city life.
