I love it. It's quiet, it's a great home to settle down in! I would love to start a family there and own a large piece of land just outside of town. There's not much in town, but it's not far from the city so you're real close to everything you need.

I love the open air and feeling of Leavenworth County. I grew up here and absolutely loved it. Leavenworth County includes many little cities that have fantastic restaurants and other attractions.
Leavenworth county is largely supportive of the local military installation and the surrounding prisons for employment. Largely rural, but only a short drive from Kansas City.
