Happy one year anniversary to this blog! In honor of that milestone, here’s the very first blog post showcasing one of my favorite places I’ve lived, Kansas City! And it just so happens to fall on 8/16 day!
Kansas City is underrated. You will hear me say this over and over again, but it’s true. There is literally something there for everyone, for all budgets and tastes. It has Midwestern values combined with a sophisticated art and dining scene comparable to any of its urban counterparts, but psst…it’s more affordable. I used to tell people back in California that KC is a sleeper city (I’ve heard the term flyover country more times than I care for), but the secret’s out. KC is having a real moment right now. After the MLB All Star game in 2012 and the Royals winning the World Series in 2015, people have started to take notice of this city as a travel destination.
I lived in the heart of America for eleven years, so when I visit, I try to hit all of my favorite spots in 2-3 days. This is a tall order because there’s so much to
eat do! Of course, this itinerary assumes that you’re not coming for a specific concert or sporting event. I could write a thousand posts about that (and maybe I will), but for now here’s my way to spend 3 days in Kansas City, MO (with a cameo from Kansas City, KS, too).
Click those red heels like Dorothy, because there’s no place like home…
