Paola is a small city that serves as the county seat of Miami County in east-central Kansas. The population was 5,011 at the 2000 census. Paola is just a twenty minute drive south of the Kansas City metro area. Paola has a beautiful Historic Downtown Park Square, which dates to the 1800s when it was a gathering place for the local Indian tribes. Today its the center for parades, celebrations or simply a nice place to spend a lovely afternoon with friends. In the center of the Historic Park Square is a picturesque Victorian gazebo and fountain. The historic square is also used for the Roots Festival each August and the Annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony, which includes a visit from Santa. During the Christmas ceremony, carriage rides are also available that take visitors through the historic streets that are lined with homes that date to the early 1800s. Downtown Paola offers antique shops, gift and specialty stores and great restaurants. Nearby attractions include Ursuline Gardens, a vineyard and winery, Hillsdale Lake and Lake Miola, which offers camping, fishing and other water sports. Paola makes a charming alternative as a home base for visiting the entire Kansas City metropolitan area, without all of the noise and crowds of the city.
