KANSAS CITY

history
Also known as The City of Fountains, Kansas City is the most centrally located major metropolitan area, and the home of barbecue, jazz, and inspiring entertainment. First Fridays are a signature downtown event, attracting over 10,000 residents and tourists to enjoy local art, music, and food.
Built in 1929, UNION was formerly a film processing center. Filmmakers came to Kansas City to develop their film as an alternative to the lofty prices in New York and California.
Kansas City lies on the Missouri-Kansas border, which often causes confusion for travelers. State Line Road serves as the dividing line, and is a simple landmark to determine which state you are in. If you are west, you are in Kansas. If you are east, you are in Missouri.
