OLATHE, Kan. -- When you think of beach towns, you typically think of places in Florida or California, but what about Olathe, Kan.

A study released by WalletHub Wednesday says Olathe is ranked number 20 on the list of “2017’s Best Beach Towns to Live in.”

The FOX 4 morning crew was shocked to hear that Olathe made the list.

Based on the morning crew's reaction, FOX 4 decided to follow up on the hype and sent reporter Melissa Stern to the beach to see what it has to offer.

On FOX 4 news at 5 and 6 she'll show what this beach looks like along with what the city plans to do to make the area more friendly for tourists.
