ABOUT KANSAS CITY, MO
The home of swing and bebop for some and “The City of Fountains” to others, Kansas City is different things to different people. Music enthusiasts are drawn to the jazz clubs and old haunts of famous musicians such as Charlie Parker and Count Basie. Today’s music scene has grown to encompass virtually every genre, from pop and country music stars to Beethoven’s symphonies and Mozart’s operas and everything in between.
Kansas City is also known for its culinary excellence. It is more than just world-class steaks and BBQ, which remain phenomenal; it also includes every variety of amazing food from some of the world’s top chefs to farm-to-table concepts and food trucks. For those interested in liquid fare, Kansas City boasts some of the country’s best microbreweries, including Boulevard Brewing Company of international fame. A recent trend has been to bring back some of Kansas City’s famous distilleries, some of which went out of business because of prohibition and some of which remained operating in Kansas City’s underground economy during the prohibition years.
The city’s history is deep and rich, and it features some of the more interesting historical sites in the Midwest: Union Station, site of the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre; Liberty Memorial; the Negro League Baseball Museum; and American Jazz Museum. Also, a trip to Kansas City is not complete without a visit to the City Market, a year-round farmer’s market that is also home to the Arabia Steamboat Museum. There are ample shopping opportunities in the famous Country Club Plaza district, and the Crossroads district is home to more than 80 art galleries as well as an eclectic array of boutiques, shops and antique parlors.
For those wishing to extend their stay, the baseball 2015 World Champion Kansas City Royals will host the Texas Rangers on Friday, July 14th at Kauffman Stadium. For outdoor entertainment, you might be interested in seeing Michael Franti & Spearhead at Crossroads KC on July 11th or the Redneck Throwdown featuring The Lacs, Big SMO, Upchurch the Redneck and more on July 14th. For more classic entertainment, Kansas City’s famous outdoor theatre, Starlight, is producing Tony Award-winning musical, An American in Paris, July 11-16th. For rock music fans, Iron Maiden with guest Ghost is playing at the Sprint Center downtown July 11th.
Kansas City’s downtown streetcar line offers free and easy access to all of the great attractions in downtown from the City Market and Riverfront to Union Station.
