All About

Living in Merriam, KS

Some residents of the Sunflower State who work in the Kansas City area have been continually looking into apartments in Merriam. Because the town is located directly off of the "metropolitan corp" transportation systems, including Interstate-35, locals find it very easy to make the trip to and from their Merriam apartments each day. But residents are surely looking for more from their community, outside of the hours from 9 to 5. Those with apartments in Merriam have not been disappointed, as the community hosts an abundance of events throughout the year that cement the friendly atmosphere.

To complement the fall season, when nature is perhaps at its most beautiful around the apartments in Merriam, the town puts on The Nature of Art outdoor art show on an October weekend. Those with Merriam apartments are invited to walk along the wooded path in Turkey Creek Streamway Park, and take their time to glance at the drawings and paintings that local artists have made depicting their natural surroundings. In fact, some of the works of art will be displayed near the locations that served as the inspiration. Attendees who like what they see can purchase some art to take home with them.

Keeping with the natural theme, renters of Merriam apartments often sleep in on Saturdays and awake to a popular farmers market in town. These events are a great place to stock up on fresh local produce, but also to meet some of the other owners and renters of Merriam apartments who live in the community.
