Okay, folks ... finally, the mega-burbs are coming onto their own. Presented in this popularity contest are two classic mega-burbs, both with their own distinctive characteristics.
Overland Park, Kansas is a major corporate center outside of Kansas City, Missouri. Demographically, the city's residents range from middle class to fabulously wealthy, but dominated by the somewhat-higher-than-middle-class crowd. Population: around 150,000. Overland Park contains one of the nation's largest edge cities, and it's home to several major corporate headquarters, including Sprint.
Aurora, Colorado is a large, primarily residential community east of Denver. Population: around 280,000. Demographics: ethnically the most integrated larger municipality in the US; dominantly middle-class, with a good-sized working class contingent to the north, and some of the state's wealthiest zip codes to the south. There's scattered office parks, but no edge city-type development.
(Yeah, yeah ... "But isn't Aurora in Kansas too?" Ha ha ... it gets funner the thousandth time you hear it.)
