The Heartbeat of Kansas City

 

KC Skyline 2_edited-1I have to brag! There is a reason why Kansas City was located in the heart of America, and I am here to tell you, it was not by accident. As any rookie or seasoned visitor to my beautiful home will tell you, from the moment you arrive, you will indeed feel this spectacular citys’ heartbeat.  Yes, the Midwestern way is really a thing. You will be hard-pressed to find a stranger and may even leave some new lifelong friends behind. In fact, the singular motto of this marvelous city is unity.

Kansas City is not just a dot in the middle of a map, it is a Destination! This city truly has it all, delicious Kansas City barbeque joints and restaurants, a fill your soul jazz district, dazzling nightlife, a vibrant and flourishing art community, spectacular music venues, historical attractions and museums and that is just to name a few!  And how could I forget to mention that Kansas City is also the home of our  World Series 2015 Champions  the Kansas City Royals! Not to mention the Kansas City Chiefs, Sporting KC and the Missouri Mavericks! (I am completely obsessed with our Royals and MY Chiefs. (Yes, as far as I am concerned they are indeed mine.)

Kansas City is often the butt of “The Wizard of Oz” jokes, despite the fact that some of the larger pieces and parts of the city are located in Missouri and not Kansas. In all fairness however, Kansas City’s arms do stretch across 18 counties and those two states. But….. just sayin’….Clicking those ruby red slippers will not likely put you as close to our downtown culture as you might desire.

I plan to introduce you to all my beautiful city has to offer in this blog. I not only welcome your input in the comments, I am willing to beg for it. What do YOU love about Kansas City?  Besides all of it.
