Kansas City Reviews
What I like most about Kansas City is that everything is in close proximity, it take literally about 10-30 to get anywhere. The clubs are fun Sunday's are live! There is a variety of restaurants, cultures and the shopping outlets have great fashions. Public transportation runs just about anywhere. There’s always upgrades being made and just a cool place to live.
I moved to Kansas City for nursing school. I wanted the small time feel so as not to be distracted by nightlife, traffic etc. I didn't know it would lack diversity in terms of race, food options. There also is not very much to do. If you're coming from a large metropolitan city as I did, be prepared to adjust yourself to the Middle America lifestyle. Things definitely move slower here. If you’re looking for a quiet place to raise a family, this is the place for you. If you are looking to work for Cerner, this is the place for you. There is definitely not much variety when looking for a career and most who move here come for a specific company. Oh and they really love their sports teams, college and professional, so pick a team!
Kansas City is a city full of life and culture. I was born and raised here and at times I have really loved the city, but also disliked it. Being an actor and writer, I often get upset about the fact that there aren't many opportunities and internships for film and acting in Kansas City. Although this may be a sad case for a person with big dreams, I still love my city. This city has instilled an underdog-like mentality in me when it comes to my art. I also have gained many friends of all different types of backgrounds and cultures by living in this city, which results in me having a variety of different stories to tell. Me having such a city labeled on me discouraged me at first, but now will become an x-factor for me during auditions and job opportunities in the future
