Olathe

According to legend, Olathe’s founder Dr. John T. Barton asked a Shawnee interpreter how to say “beautiful” in his native language. The answer was, “Olathe”. Olathe is a beautiful and fun place to live. The hardest part about life here is the pronunciation of the town’s name, so listen closely when you watch this lively video, and make sure you get it right: “Oh-lay-tha.” It takes a little practice, but it’s worth it.

As soon as you can say “Olathe” correctly, life’s a breeze. Olathe is one of the many cities in the Kansas City metro area that is booming. The population has nearly doubled in the last 15 years, making Olathe the fourth most populous city in Kansas as well as the fourth most populous city in the Kansas City metropolitan area.

Olathe is a prairie town with a long history, friendly people, and all the modern conveniences. Plus these bragging points:

  • Money Magazine “Best Places to Live” – at #11, just missing the Top 10
  • Relocate-America’s “Top 100 Places to Live”
  • One of the fastest-growing cities in the nation
  • Award-winning schools
  • Natural beauty
  • Biking and hiking trails
  • A lively arts community
  • An easy commute to Kansas City for work or play
  • Local Civil War event is one of the Top 10 bus tour destinations, according to the American Bus Tour Association

Actually, Olathe has an impressive collection of awards, including a rodeo win by their Street Maintenance department and 4th Place in the Digital Cities Survey.
