Oh-LAY-thĕ is just one of those places that makes you say: "Oh wow!" Number 11 on Money magazine's 2008 "100 Best Places to Live in the U.S.", this city seduces you with historic sites (it was a stop on the Oregon Trail), picturesque homes, tree-lined streets and scenes Norman Rockwell couldn't have painted better himself. It's the fourth largest city in the greater Kansas City Metropolitan Area, and the 24th fastest growing city in the nation. (Must be all that publicity from Money.) What this means is you should probably move here soon before the lots run out. And did I mention there's actual prairie grass?
