The draw and allure of Parkville MO has to do with its innate beauty, its small-town charm and sense of everything Americana. It’s a nice respite from the city for many commuters. More so it is something of a destination all its own, and appeals to many who want to raise their families in a pleasant community. Park University, Kansas City and plenty of antique shops and restaurants are within the area.
It’s the pleasantness of having everything in a community remaining fairly stable and giving that to your own kids as part of their experience growing up. It’s the kind of town where people are glad to know one another. The shop keeper is actually in their store working year after year.
It is a way to build memories, was you purchase pieces for your home or office. You buy a beautiful antique teacher’s desk, and it follows you throughout your career. It becomes a part of your life as you write lesson plans each week.
In the meantime, starting a family, means returning to the antique shop to pick out some items for Junior’s bedroom that match the period style of your home. The shop and the owners, and employees become a part of the family, and the home, in a sense.
It is a throwback community in that sense. While the community has burgeoned in the past 30 years, its roots go back much farther back in time. Some families have been there for many decades, and have known one another a long time.
They have grown with the community and embrace the growth. It’s, after all, been a good opportunity for their businesses.
The same is true for restaurants and coffee shops in the area too. They play their own significant role as a part of Parkville lives. The people who own and work at the restaurant are a part of the community as much as the people who frequent them.
And, again, just like with the stores, the restaurants tend to stick around for years at a time. Kids grow up going to them. Parents remember going there when they were a little kid too. It’s a great place to grow up and raise a family.
It’s the type of place to settle down with future generations in mind. Invest in family by moving to a town like this. It shares your sense of values.
