About The Area

Yes Toto, we're not in Kansas anymore... because we're in both Kansas and Missouri. This metropolitan area spans both states. Some call it the home of blues music and swing since Charlie Parker and Count Basie used to play in area clubs, while others prefer to boast about its barbecue joints that rival some of the South's greats.

Sports fans will love the Kansas City Royals Hall of Fame, while creative sorts can enjoy the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, the city’s only free art museum.

Kansas City is popular with families due to its wealth of children-friendly attractions like Sea Life Kansas City Aquarium and Legoland Discovery Center. The whole family will enjoy the National Museum of Toys and Miniatures, where parents and grandparents can tell their kids about which of the antique toys on display they played with as children.
