The One Town Near Kansas City That’s So Perfectly Midwestern

What does it really mean to be Midwestern? Some say if you bump into them and they say “ope,” that’s all you need to confirm it. Sometimes you can see the Midwest in a person directly, but other times it’s spread around town like whipped cream on pie. This town near Kansas City is the perfect little Midwestern hot spot we all love to visit.

Here’s a map if you’ve never been nearby. Otherwise, just take I-70 west out of Kansas City and take the exit to US-73, heading north until you reach town. Happy trails!

While you’re headed out of KC, you should check out this restaurant in Gower, Missouri that makes carrot cake you’ll fall in love with.
