Growing up in Bonner Springs was a great situation for me. In Bonner Springs you are far enough away that you don't have to deal with living in Kansas City, Kansas but you are close enough that you could get there in 15 minutes or so. There are plenty of things to do in Bonner Springs as well as being in driving distance of major cities like Lawerence, Kansas City Kansas and Kansas City Missouri. If I worked a job in either of these locations I would choose to live in Bonner Springs. Its a nice town and is in a great location to where everything you could need is in close proximity. Well, besides the beach.
