The suburbs are in many cases the perfect place to start a family and Shawnee, Kansas, is no exception. Over 60,000 people call Shawnee their home. The short commute to Kansas City, affordable housing prices, and clean air make this city a suburbia dreamland. Dogs are very welcome to enjoy the finer things in life too as there are plenty dog-friendly attractions in town.

The Shawnee Mission Park is the most visited park in the entire state of Kansas and also offers canoes, fishing boats and pedal boats at the marina.
