11 Undeniable Reasons Why Kansas City Will Always Be Home
There really is nowhere like Kansas City, it’s just the best place to be! From the people who live here to the sights and sounds of the city, you’ll never run out of fun people or activities. If you’ve ever looked at just how much happens every weekend here, you’ll understand how busy we are! However, sometimes the best things about a city aren’t always what you’d expect. Here’s 11 reasons why you’ll always call Kansas City your home.
1. The Chiefs and the Royals
Our two teams always make us proud no matter what they do. Whether you're a fan of our football or baseball team, you're always welcome here!
2. Our signature BBQ
Our barbecue is a worldwide phenomenon for a reason! It's seasoned and smoky, with just the right amount of sweetness. Just like us!
3. Our awesome school districts
The schools in the Kansas City area are always changing and adapting to our children's needs. They're our future, and the schools here teach them all they can.
4. Being the "City of Fountains"
There are a lot of fountains in Kansas City, which is how we earned the nickname in the first place. In some places, there's one everywhere you look!
Whether you're paying for a Richard Petty driving experience or you're just there to watch the race, NASCAR is an important part of many Kansas City residents' lives.
6. The Kansas City Renaissance Festival
Every weekend from Labor day until mid October, the Faire is in town! Rain or shine, you can get your fix of medieval garb and turkey legs, as well as pirate singers and belly dancers. People come from all over to take part in this event, so make sure to get plans in order ahead of time.
7. Our farmer's markets
Kansas City does its best to keep fresh food around for local restaurants and residents to use instead of imported goods. Farm Fresh is important here, and everything but seafood can usually be found at the City Market.
8. Our 70-mile wine trail
This wine trail starts in Kansas City and includes nine separate wineries between here and Waverly, MO. Wine lovers of all kinds can find something to sip as they travel from place to place sampling the wares.
9. How many restaurants we have
If there's something besides waterfalls that Kansas City has a lot of, it's restaurants. You could try a new one every day, and it would take a while to try them all!
10. Swope Park
Swope Park is a great spot for all of your outdoor needs. There are plenty of trails and places to have a picnic, too! Did you know that Swope Park is more than two times the size of central park?
11. The rich history
Our rich history is full of important figures and a small port town at the join of two rivers. Now it's famous for its BBQ and craft beer, and we wouldn't have it any other way.
