Did you hear? Overland Park was named #12 Happiest City in America by Wallethub. Looking at factors from depression rate and income growth to average leisure time spent per day, they compared more than 180 cities to put together the list. Turns out, Overland Park also has the lowest share of adults sleeping less than 7 hours per night – we’re a well-rested bunch!
Well, we’re just not surprised. Life in Downtown Overland Park is surely something to make you smile! KCTV5 visited Downtown OP to find out what makes us so darn happy, and they spoke with the ‘Main Dish’, Laura Laiben, here at The Culinary Center of Kansas City. (You can watch their report below…)
Y’know what else makes us happy here in Downtown Overland Park? 3rd Friday LOCAL LIFE events make us happy!
And the next one is THIS Friday from 5-8 p.m. and it’s a St. Paddy’s Day Warm-Up Party no less, featuring tasty shenanigans in our kitchens. Live music by The Shortleaf Band, FREE tastings of local spirits (Lifted Spirits Distillery) and local wines (White Tail Run Winery and Vineyard), plus a special tasting of an Irish cocktail at our CCKC bar and samples from local maker Just Enough Heat and from our Dinners On Demand freezers. Get Your Irish On at the Culinary Center of Kansas City!
There will be other businesses hosting events that include tastings, live music, art showings, demonstrations, discounts, etc. Sounds fun, right? Grab some friends and head down here after work to stroll around our happy neighborhood!
Is there any wonder why we’re happy in Overland Park?! ☺
