The largest municipality in Missouri, Kansas City has an impressive array of world-class museums, shopping areas, and great places to eat, all of which attract tourism to the area. The locals of this Midwestern city are proud of its contribution to jazz music, baseball, and barbecue, bolstering its reputation as the "heart of America." Downtown has been the focus of a large-scale regeneration effort after a period of neglect, and the area's collection of over 200 fountains and its numerous boulevards make it a pleasant place for a stroll on a relaxing vacation. To arrange what you want to do in Kansas City, use our United States trip planner.
