Lenexa is a wonderful combination of Johnson County prestige and Kansas City metro flair! In my area, schools are more than centers for education, our school district is innovative in that we focus on the social and emotional well-being of children as well as academic success - this is not the same case in areas outside of Lenexa, Overland Park, and Shawnee. Furthermore, the communities are close-knit and safe to walk through at night, no matter which neighborhood in Lenexa you reside in or visit. Although nightlife is not "poppin," a variety of local and chain restaurants are within walking distance to most neighborhoods, as well numerous dog parks, trails, and outdoor settings. Of all of the areas I have lived in Johnson County, Lenexa has most definitely been my favorite!

Lenexa is an up and coming booming area. I love Lenexa!
Growth in the area includes shopping, community centers, many parks and restaurants. Lenexa has many fun festivals and activities like the Lenexa Bbq, Chili cook off and Spinach festival. A great way to meet new people who live around you.
I love lenexa, such a great quality area, with amazing schools and so many options. Not even a mile away I have a hotel, a church, multiple restaurants, a bank, everything in walking distance. I love it! I haven't experienced any issues with crimes or anything concerning that area and I love all the events that they put together. Lenexa is the area to live because they're building a whole bunch of new things.
