Santa Fe Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Elegant old homes sit proudly overlooking the wide boulevards and tree-lined sidewalks of the Santa Fe neighborhood. It is a neighborhood of parks and churches and very convenient to some of Kansas City’s best places.
Santa Fe is bound by East 27th Street, Indiana Avenue, East Linwood Boulevard, and Prospect Avenue.
Little more than a mile from Santa Fe is the home and studio of one of KC’s most famous artist, Thomas Hart Benton. His studio, which remains exactly as it was at his death, is open to the public. His works are proudly displayed at nearby Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art.
The art museum is on the east side of one of the liveliest districts of Kansas City. Within a mile or so of the museum are the University of Missouri at Kansas City and the prestigious Rockhurst University. Country Club Plaza is here as well and is a favorite spot for shopping, dining, and finding entertainment. The multi-block district draws visitors for the architecture and fountains alone.
Just north of Santa Fe are newer entertainment areas such as the Power and Light District and Crown Center, the home of Hallmark Cards. Crown Center is sometimes called a city within the city because of its many shops, theaters, and events.
Approximately eight miles away is the Harry Truman Home, and a few miles beyond the home is the Truman Library. Many other historic sites are all around the Santa Fe neighborhood, including the National World War I Museum at the north end of Penn Valley Park.
Fans of professional sports will find living in the Santa Fe neighborhood means it’s quite easy to take in a Royals Baseball or Chiefs Football game. Both play at the stadiums less than five miles away at the intersection of I-70 and I-435.
