Skyline: Kansas City, MO

 

With art deeply rooted in its past, it is not surprising that Kansas City‘s landscape is striking. Nicknamed as the “City of Fountains,” KC boasts of over 200 fountains, claiming to have the second most in the world with Rome as the first. It has also earned the moniker “Paris of the Plains” because of its wide boulevards, beautiful parks, interesting architecture, and countless jazz clubs and gambling halls. Not surprisingly, it has produced the following notable Kansas Citians: Harry Truman, Amelia Earhart, Walt Disney, Ernest Hemingway, Joyce Hall (Hallmark), Kate Spade, Eminem, David Cook, and Melissa Etheridge.

 

Good Morning, KC.

 Asleep but wide awake Kansas
