“Good Starts Here”. Doesn’t that just sound like the motto of the type of place you would want to live? Well, that just so happens to be the motto of Shawnee, Kansas. It would seem as though the whole town has taken that motto quite literally, as Shawnee is one of the safest towns in Kansas, and indeed in the entire U.S. This makes it a popular community for families. But all of that goodness comes with a little bit of rugged masculinity, at the same time, as it has been mentioned in the “America’s Manliest Cities” report as a high-growth suburb of Kansas City. If you want to live near America’s third-manliest city without worrying about the safety of your family, Shawnee’s the place.

Safety paired with manliness, what more could you want? If the answer to that question is a bike friendly community, you should go ahead and start packing for Shawnee, Kansas. Shawnee was the first city in the Kansas City area to adopt a bike transportation plan including both on-road and off-road bicycle facilities. This bicycle friendly infrastructure includes 18 miles of designated bike lanes, over 40 miles of shared bike lanes, and almost 30 miles of bike trails.

Money Magazine’s top 100 places to live included special mentions of its affordable housing and an average commute time lower than the national average – just by a minute or two, but the little things count.

Just for fun, check out this video for kids from Shawnee’s living history museum, Shawnee Town 1929:
