Reasons to Visit Overland Park

Four Reasons to Visit Overland Park this Summer

Sponsored by Visit Overland Park

We specialize in making kids smile. Interactive sports. The great outdoors. Bib-worthy eats and guilty-pleasure treats. You can have a “never-done-this-before” or “man-I-love-this-place” kind of visit—or a bit of both—because it’s all close by in Overland Park. Put on your comfiest shoes, load up the kids in the car and head to Overland Park. You’ll be here before the kids say, “are we there yet?”


Warm days, summer nights

Strang Hall and Family Tree Nursery

Outdoor events are back just in time for sweet summertime! Lemonade and rock and roll never sounded so good at Prairiefire’s free Thursday night concert series.

Endless Eats

Q39 Sandwich

We have your familiar favorite eats (that means barbecue). And you’ll find some not-so-familiar dishes too. Overland Park is home to cuisines from around the world. It’s a foodie’s paradise. And it’s a parent’s paradise, too--we dare you to show us a picky eater.

Family favorites

Top Golf

We have some of the most kid-friendly restaurants in the metro. We have fantastic shopping, gorgeous museums and Instagram-worthy hiking spots. We also have the perfect spot for your kid to take better golf swings than you at TopGolf. Hey, someone had to say it.

Um, hello?! Kansas City is a quick trip to our backyard. Staying in Overland Park is an easy home base with the kids. You’ll find hotel pools here too. We get it. Kids are our thing. Your hotel key is already available at the front desk. Cannonball!
