Overland Park, Kansas, is the second largest city in the state, and has the big city attractions many visitors will enjoy. While its proximity to Kansas City means easy access to major league sports teams like the Kansas City Royals, Chiefs, and Wizards, there is a lot to see within the boundaries of Overland Park. The Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art, located at Johnson County Community College, displays nearly 400 works of art across campus. The Overland Park Botanical Gardens and Arboretum focuses on preserving and restoring natural ecosystems such as the Dry-Mesic Prairie, which features native grasses.

Overland Park is served by Kansas City International Airport, 30 minutes to the north.
