A city whose limits stretch over 44 square miles, Shawnee has a lot of land for you to explore before settling in. There are plenty of little parks, lakes, rivers, and streams around town for anglers, river rats, and lazy lake bums. There are some historic sites, lots of local events, theater, music, and the Youth Rodeo. If you're a gambling man, head over to the Firelake Casino, and if you're a sinner or a saint, there are lots of friendly little churches to get involved in.
With so many different neighborhoods, it's definitely worthwhile to explore the city before choosing a property rental. You certainly wouldn't want to move in next door to the wild college crowd, and you wild college students certainly wouldn't want to live next to those pesky little kids. So, be sure to pay this little city a visit and see which areas of town are suitable for you and yours.
Inexpensive apartments are the easiest thing in the world to find around here. With rates ranging from $400 to $650, it's hard to find a place that isn't perfectly affordable. If you're in town to have fun and get some learnin', then the university neighborhoods have plenty of low cost apartments for rent. Or, if you're a fan of local breweries, Irish pubs, bowling, shopping, and dining, then neighborhoods around the city center are a good place to start your search. On the outer limits of the city, you can occasionally find houses for rent, though the hunt for this kind of country living takes a little more effort. For rental homes, try some local-level searching through classifieds and word-of-mouth.
Looking for a pet friendly property rental? No problem. Shawnee has plenty of cat and dog friendly apartments for rent, as well as plenty of wide open spaces for your furry friends to enjoy. So, bring the pets along. Just be sure to save up an extra $200 or so for the pet deposit.
That's the looks of things in Shawnee these days. Now, it's time to get on with your apartment hunt. Best of luck!
