Compare Lenexa to Top 10 Best Places
Popeye would be proud of this town 12 miles southwest of Kansas City. September 2009 marks the 25th anniversary of the Lenexa Spinach Festival, which commemorates the town's 1930s status as the "spinach capital of the world."
But Lenexa doesn't get its strength just from spinach. It's home to the headquarters of restaurant chain Applebee's, plus a J.C. Penney distribution center that employs several hundred people.
Bioscience is big in the area too. The city has a 1-to-1 ratio of jobs to residents. --D.G.
