Liberty's biggest employers include the Liberty Hospital, a Hallmark card distribution center and several other mid-size businesses, but the town's best economic asset is arguably its closeness to jobs in Kansas City. The first-ring suburb offers shopping, restaurants and parks for walking, hiking and biking. Residents can play soccer, baseball and golf at the $7 million Fountain Bluff recreational complex, opened in 2002. William Jewell College, a small liberal arts school, is also located there, giving the town a boost of youth and culture. -A.F.
