Kansas City Quick Guide
One city. Two states. More than 90 barbecue restaurants. Kansas City has so much to offer that it spans the borders of neighboring states - Missouri to the east and Kansas to the west. Everything in between is hot jazz, a number of world class museums, and architectural districts that celebrate this city's historic past.
Visitors will want to stop and shop at Country Club Plaza, the nation's first suburban shopping district. Or, for a taste of the contemporary, visit The Legends at Village West, billed as "an 855,000-square-foot, open-air lifestyle center" that includes shopping, dining and entertainment venues.
Navigating Kansas City's dual municipalities can be daunting. However, Missouri residents can visit City Hall at 414 E. 12th St., or dial 311 from the 816 area code. Those living in Kansas can visit City Hall at 701 N. 7th St. to learn more about city departments and available services.
