I have lived in this area for about 6 years and I absolutely LOVE IT! Everything is right around the corner. Great schools, tones of restaurants, stores to shop at and the people are so friendly. The best decision I have made for my family.

I moved to Kansas city from the beautiful central coast of California. I was initially apprehensive of moving far from home to a place with inclement weather, and although its a cold weather change it has been nothing but exciting so far. I love the people, the atmosphere and the city itself. I look forward continuing to explore my new surroundings in the city of fountains.
It’s pretty quiet around here and there’s everything you need right at Zona Rosa! Plenty of restaurants and stores you’d find at your local mall. No need to travel all the way to the Plaza or Legends!
