The first thing to know about retiring in Kansas with Upside is that we are not a typical senior living community. As an Upside member, you get exclusive access to our hand-picked selection of apartments in Kansas City, Overland Park, and Lenexa. They come in a wide variety of sizes, floor plans, and layouts, so finding the right home for you is a breeze. Here’s just a brief sample of what makes retiring in Kansas special:
Kansas City was originally founded on the Missouri side of state lines, but as the metro area continued to flourish, it expanded into the Kansas side as well. This is why you’ll often get this question when you tell people you’ve retired in Kansas City: KCK or KCMO? On the KCK side, there’s convenient transportation, world-class museums and attractions, and a must-see performing arts scene.
Retiring in Overland Park is literally, well, a walk in the park. That’s because Overland Park, Kansas, is the most populated park in the country. As such, you’ll find everything here – from one-of-a-kind shopping destinations and renowned Kansas City BBQ to unique hot spots like Chicken N Pickle, which combines delicious chicken-centric food with the excitement of Pickleball, including plenty of courts to challenge your friends after a good meal.
Lenexa is known as the “City of Festivals” and retiring in this city with Upside is like a VIP pass to all of the action. With its own impressive park system and a brand-spanking-new downtown area, Lenexa has tons to offer – from dining and shopping to unique attractions you won’t find anywhere else.
