1. We are too much city for just one state.
Straddling the border of Missouri and Kansas — we’ve got twice the amount of stuff to do. For vibrant nightlife, we have the Power & Light District with its great open container laws. For hipster bars and eclectic shops, we can pop into Westport and hunt for vintage treasures at Boomerang then make our whiskey dreams come true at Julep Cocktail Club. We’ve got First Fridays in the Crossroads, where local and national artists and musicians can have a cultural rendezvous. And if you time it right, you can stuff yourself with free cheese and crackers as you walk through the galleries and street parties in our historic arts district.
Plus, our museums range from the famous Nelson-Atkins Museum to the less-well-known Negro Leagues Baseball Museum. For the performing arts, we’ve got the architecturally beautiful Kauffman Center and the outdoor Starlight Theatre that looks like the entrance to a castle. In a city like this, you can never be bored.
