Where can I find a small town feel near Kansas City?

July 9, 2012 | 0 Comments

To the North of Kansas City you will find the areas of Parkville and Riverside, MO both are small suburban areas with a small town feel but just a short drive from downtown Kansas City.

Parkville, MO with a population of just over 5,000 is known for its historic downtown area, art galleries and antique shops. The area has a large park system and sage neighborhoods and is just about 10 miles northwest of downtown.

The area of Riverside prides itself on strong schools, safety, low taxes and “top notch infrastructure”.  Revenues from its partnership with Argosy Casino have gone toward planning and creating a “charming and well planned” city.

Apartments in North Kansas City range from studios to three-bedroom units, and there are also some single-family homes available for lease.
