Directly on the border between Kansas and Missouri, Kansas City sits at the confluence of the Missouri and Kansas Rivers. Known for being the “City of Fountains,” Kansas City is also home to extensive parks, including Shawnee Mission Park which has over a thousand acres of land to bike, hike, and fish, and there’s even room let your pup run lease free! Home to the Kansas City Chiefs and the Kansas City Royals, the city is alive with sportsmanship. Whether you’re out to enjoy the great jazz, blues, or the famous BBQ, Kansas City does not disappoint.
Kansas City is too large to comfortably walk across, so it's a good thing it has an excellent public transportation system. Historically, the streetcar system in this city was one of the best in the nation. Though the original 300 miles of streetcar track has not been in service in over 50 years, the city is taking steps bring the trolly back, offering residents a way to get around town for free. In the meantime, residents can hop on the MAX, a rapid-transit bus line that moves as people around the town as quickly as many light rail systems.
