					Kansas City Here I Come

When we think of really terrific destinations to find great sights and
experiences, we somehow tend to think of the coasts of America. And to
be sure, from the California to Washington State to the eastern seaboard,
these states boast some of the most exciting vacation destinations we
have in this country. But it’s never a good idea to overlook the
wonderful locations located dead center in the middle the country for
that experience of the Midwest that will be as unique as your trip to
Boston or San Francisco.

Kansas City boasts a robust Midwest culture that is both boisterously
western and very metropolitan as well. It is actually a beautiful city
that is filled with fabulous art that is on display literally anywhere
you can turn. The city fathers made sure that art was a big part of how
the city grew up and you will see interesting and skillfully made art
sitting in the middle of a garden, off the side of the road or in an out
of the way place all over Kansas City.

But no trip to Kansas City is complete without enjoying the amazing
tastes of what is possibly the best steak and barbeque in the entire
country. Kansas City sits directly on the route of the Cumberland trail.
If you remember your history well, you know that in the days of the early
west, the Cumberland trail was used by cattlemen to drive herds of cattle
up to the markets of Kansas City, Omaha and other great merchant stops to
be sold and shipped out via railroad or by barge to be meals for
consumers all over the country in the world. Small wonder that it is
Kansas City is the home of chefs who know better than anyone does how to
prepare beef that will literally melt in your mouth. Some have said the
quality of meat you will get in a fine Kansas City restaurant is so good
that you won’t even have to use your teeth to eat it.

Kansas City is also home to some great historic stops. Just a few miles
away from the city center, you can visit the inspiring Harry S. Truman
Library and Museum. You can walk through the notes and pictures of the
term of this great president and get a feel for what he went through as
he made decisions that shaped the history of this great nation. And
don’t be surprised if you will find your kids not bored at all but
completely enthralled with the story of the life of this historic
American president. And it’s likely if they take back some mementos from
their visit, they will probably get extra credit in school for taking the
time to enjoy this wonderful stop in Independence Missouri.

But Kansas City is also all about fun. For the kids, Kansas City has
some of the best water parks in the country. You can drop them off for a
day of fun and the adults can take in some of the exciting casinos that
have sprung up along the river for some pleasant adult time of recreation
as well. Then that night, everybody can gather at a Kansas City Royals
baseball game and take in America’s pastime, eat a few hot dogs and enjoy
one of the best baseball parks in the nation. Whether the Royals win or
lose doesn’t matter. It’s a thrill to go to a major league game and it
will be a memory the kids will be talking about for months, maybe years
to come after you finish your trip to Kansas City Missouri.
