Lee's Summit is a place with lots of variety. You are a suburb to Kansas City which is twenty minutes away. There are many lakes around to do fun things on, and you get a mix of all the season from the cold and snowy winters, to the warm pool day summers.

I live on acreage but the amenities of the city are close by. The best of both worlds. I would definitively choose to live here again
Food Saver Grocery store. Not the best selection or prices but convenient.
