From Shopping to Dining to Getting Drinks
When it comes to selecting which luxury apartments or studio apartments you want to live in, it’s not just about the floorplan or the amenities you’ll have access to. Obviously, that is going to factor into your decision to some degree, but location also plays a big role in where people live. In most cases, people try to select apartments that are close to their work or to their friends and family. Additionally, people want to live close to the places that they go to drink, dine, and play. Many people are flocking to The Apex at CityPlace now that Overland Park has established itself as a go-to destination for people looking to have a fun-filled weekend.
To delve into this a little further, we’re breaking down the top six things to do in Overland Park. Consider this list the next time that you’re looking for something to do with friends and family.
Prairiefire – 5661 W 135th St.
If you’re looking for shopping, dining, games, and great drinks all wrapped up in one district, then look no further than Prairiefire. It’s a relative newcomer to the Overland Park scene that serves as a one-stop-shop for those looking for family-friendly fun. It features a dine-in AMC movie theater for those looking to catch the latest blockbuster. Pinstripes has professional bocce ball courts, bowling, and a full line-up of food and signature cocktails. For the Sunday fun day crowd, The Brass Onion has one of the best brunches in the Overland Park area, complete with bloody Mary’s and mimosas. The entire Prairiefire area is lined with restaurants, shops, and outdoor patios so you can enjoy this perfect Kansas City fall weather.
Top Golf – 10611 Nall Ave.
Top Golf is easily one of the most popular destinations for any weekend crowd. And if you’re not a golfer – don’t worry – you’re going to have a great time anyway. The brilliant thing that Top Golf has done is they’ve made the game of golf accessible to those who have never hit the links a day in their life. You don’t even need clubs. Top Golf provides everything for you, and they have numerous game modes that appeal to all experience levels. Add to it an amazing food menu and a long list of signature cocktails and you can see why this place is packed day-after-day. Reserve your golf bay early to dodge some of the wait time.
Oak Park Mall – 11149 W 95th St.
Although many of us got used to doing our shopping exclusively online, some of us still crave that traditional retail experience of being physically in the store. There is perhaps no bigger retail experience here in Overland Park than Oak Park Mall, a longtime shopping staple here in Johnson County. It’s got all the major department stores such as Macy’s, Nordstrom, and JC Penny along with an assemblage of boutique shops, electronics stores, fun & game stores for kids of all ages, and a ton of food options. They even have a seasonal store for your upcoming Halloween and Christmas shopping.
Town Center Plaza – 5000 W. 119th St.
For those of you looking for an outdoor shopping experience, you can’t go wrong with Town Center located just a short drive away in Leawood. Prepare for a mixture of moderate to high-end restaurants, shops, department stores, along with a few surprises sprinkled in here and there. Longstanding culinary staples such as The Bristol and Sullivan’s Steakhouse are huge draws, but relative newcomer Shake Shake always draws in big crowds of hungry shoppers. Town Center has always done an amazing job giving the Johnson Country crowd what they want with stores like Crate & Barrel and Macy’s while introducing new local attractions such as Blade & Timber ax throwing, a nice way to crank up the excitement on an otherwise casual shopping day.
iFly Indoor Skydiving – 10975 Metcalf Avenue
When you think of Overland Park, your mind probably doesn’t jump to thrill-seeking. However, iFly Indoor Skydiving lets Johnson County residents get all of the adrenaline of jumping out of a plane with none of the danger. iFly puts divers in a controlled wind chamber that perfectly recreates the act of skydiving. The big difference is that it’s indoors. It’s perfect for those that have always wanted to experience floating on air without all the hassle of going through the traditional channels. And don’t worry about having experience. iFly takes each one of their divers through flight school so they can get the most out of their dive.
Dave & Buster’s – 6811 W 135th St.
Sometimes you just want to feel like a kid again, and Dave & Buster’s allows you to do just that. The arcade that caters to the adult crowd is perfect for those that enjoy having a few drinks and apps while they get their game on. D&B has some new games that simply can’t be found anywhere else, such as their full-scale Hungry Hungry Hippos (yes, you actually sit on the hippo…it’s amazing). They’ve also got VR games and a mixture of classics such as billiards and bowling. We dare you to walk into Dave & Busters and not be able to find something to do.
