Fort Leavenworth

Fort Leavenworth

We were here for a year for CGSC. We lived off post and were very glad we did. We had a spacious house near downtown and under BAH. Our friends on post had nice housing overall but there were cases of bad A/C, spiders(!) and some mold. Hopefully isolated incidents. The commissary and PX are fine and the post itself is a pretty one. Most things are geared toward the students though. PEDS clinic is overall very good/friendly. Didn't have a great experience with the legal assistance at SJA so wouldn't use them again unless absolutely necessary. There is a post event called PAIR Day where community businesses and services have tables with info. It's a great resource but be advised the companies are not necessarily endorsed by the fort. It's easy to trust a company there b/c it's on post but a company's presence there doesn't not mean it is good. However, the event is worth attending. Jack & Jill preschool is excellent and our friends with older kids loved the school on post. Heard mixed reviews of Xavier, the Catholic school, so check with the school liaison officer about it. For pets, the post vet is really good though it can be tough to get an appointment. Pioneer Animal Hospital on S. 4th is a good choice. Please be very very wary of Deb's Riverview Kennel. She markets heavily to military families at PAIR Day. My dog and several others became ill after a stay Deb's. As I asked around post I found many people had a similar bad experience there. Just research carefully if you are thinking of boarding there. The Countryside Kennel in Easton, KS is excellent and highly-recommended. Main Street Pet Resort is great for grooming and very caring for boarding though didn't have the green space we wanted for our pet. They do drop off and pick up at the PX which is nice. Ani-pals Resort is by the KC Speedway and excellent as well. Based on our experience, these kennels are far better than Deb's and are worth the bit extra of a drive. Baan Thai and Osaka are the two of the best restaurants in town. Outstanding food. Marfields pub is in the "hinterlands" on 2nd Street but an excellent hole-in-the wall place. Great pub food. There's a farmers market on Wednesday afternoons and Saturday mornings. It's OK, not a huge selection. I found a caterpillar on my lettuce AFTER I washed it. So the food's fresh! but ick.
