One of the best parts about moving into a new apartment home is exploring all that the area offers and seeing what’s around your neighborhood. At Waterside Residences on Quivira, our luxury apartments are immersed in the middle of some of Lenexa’s best and most notable local attractions, providing you with a never-ending list of things to do and sights to see. 

If you’re new to the area, don’t worry! This guide will fill you in on all of our favorite Lenexa local attractions that you’ll want to incorporate into your weekend plans. 

5 Attractions You’ll Only Find in Lenexa

Lenexa is rapidly growing, now being home to nearly 60,00 people. With more local attractions than we can count, there’s something for the whole family to enjoy. Here’s what you can find just minutes away from your new luxury apartment home. 

1. Sar-Ko-Par Trails Park

As the weather starts to cool down, you’ll be looking for different ways to get outside and enjoy the outdoors. Sar-Ko-Par Trails Park stretches 50.9 acres and is one of Lenexa’s most popular parks. Take a walk on the winding trails that surround Rose’s Pond. Or, get moving on one of the sand volleyball or tennis courts. 

And if you like history, you won’t want to miss Legler Barn Museum, which can be found right inside the park. Once you step inside the museum, you’ll have immediate access to a collection of Lenexa’s historical artifacts and archival documents.  

The park is especially remarkable during the holiday season, as it features a magnificent Christmas lights display that is sure to get you in the holiday spirit. 

2. Family Tree Nursery

If you consider yourself a plant person or are just looking for a new addition to your luxury apartment, stop by Family Tree Nursery. This family owned and operated nursery has been in business for over 55 years, serving and assisting the community in all their horticulture needs. Shop a variety of plants, flowers, and fresh herbs. And while you’re at it, make sure to check out the nursery’s award-winning Poinsettias and Mums. 
Inside this beautiful, modern garden center, you can also find Café Equinox, a plant-inspired café. The choice is yours between an extensive selection of Thou Mayest coffee drinks, KC pastries, and other delicious treats.

Welcome fall this year at the nursery’s Fall Festival Event, which includes live music, food, activities for the whole family, and of course, lots of plants! 

3. Limitless Brewing

As Lenexa’s first brewery, Limitless Brewing is a must-see. Inside this local brewery are delectable craft beers and a number of different blends. Because the brewery is 21+, you’re guaranteed a mature crowd and experience. 

Beer isn’t the only thing you’ll find at Limitless Brewing. It features an elegant taproom, complete with a space for creative writing. Customers can also hangout in a backspace found behind the brewery, where you can play games like corn hole and ping pong as you enjoy a refreshing beverage. 

Limitless Brewing also hosts many events to help you get involved in the community of your new apartment home. Every Thursday, test your knowledge at Trivia Night or sing along to live music every Sunday. 

4. Lenexa Public Market

Lenexa’s quickly evolving city center, known as The District, is made up of new buildings and green spaces that are dispersed throughout the area. The Lenexa Public Market lives within The District and is the perfect spot to grab lunch or dinner. This culinary attraction is a modern take on a traditional food court, consisting of local food and retail vendors. 

No matter what you’re in the mood for, the Public Market has it all! Including pizza, African cuisines, and American comfort food, the lineup is ever changing, allowing you to try an assortment of eats. You can dine inside, or al fresco upon the terrace, furnished with fire pits and heaters. 

The Lenexa Public Market also holds several events throughout the year, including live music, culinary classes, seasonal activities, and more! 

5. KC Classic Auto

KC Classic Auto is unlike any other car dealership you’ve visited before, because it doubles as a museum. This automotive attraction has been in business for over 40 years, and is a dynamic exhibit of retro cars in mint condition – all of which you can purchase! 

Even if you aren’t in the market for a new ride, KC Classic Auto is a great spot to see a number of timeless vehicles, like a 1968 Corvette or 1973 Mustang, just to name a couple. Better yet, the exhibit is always evolving, so you’ll get to explore a new set of cars each time you visit.
