Girls’ Weekend
Your hunt for inspiration could begin at Olathe Glass and Home Décor, where you can find custom items and decorating ideas for your home.
Hop Santa Fe Street and continue shopping in historic downtown Olathe. Browse through Serendipity Accents and its three floors’ worth of home décor—all housed in a beautifully restored 1920’s home. And be sure to stop by Pickering House, listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Then get pampered at any one of Olathe’s many boutique spas or feed your shopping muse at Kansas City’s famed Country Club Plaza.

Guy’s Day Out
Kick off by teeing off at Prairie Highlands Golf Course. Skirted by tall prairie grasses, this par 72 golf course has been recognized as one of America’s Best Places to Play by Golf Digest.
Then trade your tee for tackle at Bass Pro Shops, a sportsman’s paradise. You can even put your gear to good use at Lake Olathe or Cedar Lake.
Explore the wider world of sports with the Pioneers, the athletics team from MidAmerica Nazarene University and a top contender in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA). Or capture the fever of pro football or baseball by working in a Chiefs or Royals game.
End the day with a juicy Kansas City strip or savory Kansas City-styled barbecue.

Family-Friendly Escape
Get the kids up early and take on some midmorning memories. Grab your board and head over to Olathe’s Skate Park at Two Trails Park, or if you prefer walking to rolling, lace up your sneakers and hike the Indian Creek Greenway Trail.
After you’ve taken in the tricks and the birds, quench your thirst and satisfy your hunger with some local eats. You might sample some of the region’s legendary barbecue at Smokin Joe’s BBQ, opt for some classic diner fare at West Side Diner in downtown Olathe, or nosh on the time-tried standard with stone-fired pizza at Spin Neapolitan Pizza.
The afternoon offers a wealth of options for the young and carefree—and your kids, too. Walk through American history at Mahaffie Stagecoach Shop and Farm, knock down some pins at Mission Bowl ‘n Olathe, revel in life’s drama at the Olathe Community Theatre, soak in the arts at one of Kansas City’s three art museums, or catch a Chiefs or Royals game.
