Well, I'll be moving to Overland Park, Kansas/The Johnson County area in August 2012 and I was wondering what it's like over there. I'm going to be going to college there and I wanted peoples opinion on Johnson County, Kansas. Like what is the life style like? What are the neighborhoods like? What are some good facts about Johnson County? etc... Thanks!

If you re-post in the Kansas City subforum in the Missouri forum, you'll get all the answers you need.

You could probably just read existing posts re: Kansas City to learn all about JoCo.

Nice suburban area. Not much else to say. Imagine the suburbs of any large metro and you have pretty much imagined Johnson County. 550,000 people, lots of strip malls, subdivisions and office parks.

Very clean, safe, well kept area with educated people living the suburbian life. It will most likely cost you more for housing than what you have been spending in Topeka.

If you're looking for something older and perhaps a bit walkable, northern joco is the way to go. Downtown Overland Park is rather charming. South of 435 is much newer and made up of large stucco homes and apartment complexes. Are you going to JuCo or the KU Edwards campus or something else? Will you be looking for an apartment or a house?

It's nice! Depends what you like, but Johnson County is just perfect for me. You don't say if you will be going to Johnson County Community College or KU Edwards Campus (or somewhere else?), but both of those areas are very nice and safe. There are apartments nearby (119th and Quivira is right between the two and there are a several apartment complexes in that area). Middle to upper middle class surburban area. Stoll Park is on 119th, nice big park and good for dogs too. Safe area, very little crime.

Well you will find a large selection of all different types of apartments on Quivira rd from 435 all the way down to 119 st. The area is a bit more established now.
