This city in western Missouri, just east of Kansas City, has a diverse offering of Independence apartments for rent. Known as the Queen City of the Trails, Independence was the starting point for three of America’s great Westward Trails: the Santa Fe Trail, the California Trail, and the Oregon Trail.
While offering a full range of entertainment options, such as a water park and challenging golf courses, Independence also offers a great hometown atmosphere rife with history. Independence is the hometown of U.S. President Harry S. Truman and the legendary actress Ginger Rogers. The city also hosts numerous historical sites related to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the American Civil War and Western history.
Nearby Kansas City is backed by a vibrant arts scene, world-class attractions and an eclectic mix of shops. Many Independence apartments for rent are just a short drive away from everything Kansas City is famous for: jazz, museums, theater, sports, history, shopping and, of course, barbeque.
There’s so much to see and do once you find an apartment for rent in Independence. From unique shops to annual festivals and wonderful heritage sites that shaped the nation, it’s all here.
