Homes for rent in the Kansas City area are available in a number of smaller cities and suburban towns, each with a distinct personality and a claim on the region's culture. Since the community of Lenexa, Kansas, has been growing since the country's early days -- the legendary "Wild Bill" Hickok is named as one of the town's earliest residents -- the area around Lenexa homes for rent carries that distinct Midwestern charm that recalls the past in comforting ways.
The town has been listed as one of Money magazine's best small towns in which to live in the U.S. The comforts of suburban life and the influence of nearby Kansas City, Missouri, certainly affect the quality of life for those in Lenexa rental homes, but the town's own traditions keep residents satisfied as well.
In particular, the town has established itself as a regional hub of food culture through both its delicious restaurants and its unique events. Every June, people who rent homes in Lenexa can visit "The Great Lenexa Barbecue Battle," a tantalizing fair that also functions as the Kansas State Barbecue Championship. Furthermore, in the early 20th century, the city was dubbed the "Spinach Capital of the World," and the community near many Lenexa rentals still celebrates the annual Spinach Festival each September.
