Kansas City Reviews
Kansas City is a pretty like-minded, tight-knit community. Citizens are always willing to help one another. When you say "Kansas City", people think Kansas when infact it's Missouri. KCMO(Kansas City, Missouri) and KCK (Kansas City, Kansas) remain two seperately incorporated cities but together, along with a number of other cities and suburbs, are a part of the KC Metro area. Most activities/attractions, including fine dining and lodging, are centrally located about 15-30min from anywhere in metro area. AMAZING food, especially if you're a BBQ fan! Non-accredited schools and violence/murder rate are biggest downfalls.
This city has it all! From a vibrant walkable city to the impressive mountain bike trails a short drive away. Nice people with an inclusive, welcoming vibe. No shortage of educational options for children and volunteer options for all. Community is important as well as diversity. Good food is important as well as health and fitness. There are plenty of housing options available at affordable prices! And who can deny the appeal of a city that has 3 championship teams? Royals, Chiefs, and Sporting KC!
Kansas City is an incredibly diverse city, and with that comes the wonders that each culture brings. The food, the music, the beliefs. Its what makes Kansas city go! but if there was something I could change it would be the number of gun deaths, especially the deaths of children and young adults. For some reason, it becomes easier and easier for the youth to acquire guns, and since there so naive they don't realize the power they hold with them when they use guns on others they simply do not like. Kansas City is a beautiful city solely because of the people when we have our younger generation killing each other, who would be left to make this city go?
