Kansas City Recognized as a Top Place to Live
Huffington Post named KC the coolest city in America, giving several reasons why people love Kansas City. Here’s one of the reasons:
With over 200 fountains, Kansas City has more fountains than any city in the world besides Rome. The city also has more boulevards than any other city except Paris. There are beautiful neighborhoods and rolling hills, and you’ll get four seasons in Kansas City.
