Kansas city

Fountains, jazz and BBQ

With more boulevards than Paris, and more fountains than any other city in the world except for Rome, Kansas City should be popular for its cityscapes, but instead, it is famed for its BBQs. But sure you’ll add to your Kansas City travel guide other attractions as well, and you can start with the beautiful art deco buildings in the Central Business District - Downtown Kansas City. Expect even more in terms of entertainment: Kansas City boasts one of the most advanced theater in the US, complete with vibrating seats. Last, but not least, if you like jazz, this is the place to be.
