Visit Kansas City.

Kansas City doesn’t get its unique nickname out of thin air. This bustling berg invites visitors to dive into its history by simply walking around the city. During your stay, you’ll have the opportunity to see over 200 fountains throughout the metro area. In the 1800s, the fountains served as drinking water for horses; now they fill the city with unique sculptures and art. Spot the famous J.C. Nichols Memorial Fountain, one of the city’s most recognizable landmarks. Your time exploring will leave you fascinated by the history of Kansas City’s dedication to public art.

History buffs will enjoy visiting the World War I Museum. The museum houses a glass walkway overlooking a field of poppies—a reminder of combat during the First World War. If history isn’t your jam, explore the American Jazz Museum instead. As one of the most famous jazz cities in the world, Kansas City is the perfect place to immerse yourself in the history of the genre. Located downtown, this interactive museum educates on the origins of different jazz styles and popular instruments; hear some of your favorite tunes and revel in their backstory. If your trip to the museum has you tapping your toes and in the mood for more, spend the evening downtown at one of the many great jazz venues for a live performance.

Don’t forget to take advantage of Kansas City’s barbecue scene—you are in a world capital of barbecue, after all. In fact, Kansas City has more barbecue restaurants per capita than any other U.S. city. If that doesn’t indicate how important barbecue is to KC, nothing else will. Kansas City barbecue is known for its use of a wide variety of meats and unique style of baked beans. Grab a bib and a plate and get ready to chow down.
