View Full Version : What makes KC so special?


Moooo

Okay, so I was looking on the internet and it occurred to me there are a lot of KC-sized cities throughout America, many of which we never give real thought to.

My question is, other than football and BBQ :) , what makes KC so special? I always like going up there, but if it wasn't for my family, and the fact I'm a Chiefs fan, I'd probably not be up there much, if at all.

So, IYO, what makes KC so special?

Good question. I flew there last year to see the Chiefs and "experience" Kansas City. Had a great time. But, you are right. There are many cities that size in the US that I would not have even considered flying to. Had a great time...I prefer Jack Stack myself.

The only Outhouse I know of is in Lawrence.... and it hasn't been anything of note since the early 90s (prior to its sale to frat boys, then conversion into a crappy strip club {so I heard - never went})

Kansas City needs some sort of big tourist monument. St. Louis has the arch, San Antonio has the Tower of the Americas, Seattle has the Space Needle...what does Kansas City have? They should build a really, really big statue of a horse that can be seen from space.

Plaza district, Zonarosa district (Plaza II), Westport (bar/club hopping district), Chiefs, Royals, Wizards, Gates, SMoke Stack, Jack Stack, Aurthur Bryants, Casinos, Sprint Center coming up near downtown. Arena league team(Brigades). There's additional plans in the works to revitalize down town.

United States Negro Leagues baseball museum, Jazz museum & district, Nelsons Art gallery featuring a lot of Thomas Hart Benton's work. 2nd largest park in America Swope Park(Haven't confirmed it). I-70 Speedway, Great Wolf Lodge (Indoor water park & hotel in 1).
Can't think of more but it's a start & hopefully answers your ?'s.

Oh yeah... Worlds of Fun & Ocean's of Fun (Our version of Six Flags with a separate water park also - side by side). Forgot to mention we have caves also... even though i've never been in one.

The project will include a Schlitterbahn Waterpark for summer operation. It will be one of the world’s largest tubing parks with miles of interconnected rivers and signature attractions such as the Master Blaster® uphill water coaster and Torrent River®.

The project will also include a large Interactive Marine Park with saltwater lagoons for snorkeling, helmet diving and touch pools.

A mile-long River Walk will feature destination shopping, dining and entertainment centered in a covered, year-round environment.

A variety of Lodging facilities will be available, including a 300-room hotel, waterfront cabins, and the unique Treehaus Resort with elevated pods – all integrated with the waterpark attractions.

I've lived all over the world and no city combines the big-city features with the small-town, down-to-earth feel that KC does. I realize I'm a bit biased in this regard, but most big cities have an arrogance to them and most small towns don't have the options that are available in KC.

CosmicPal
08-01-2006, 10:39 AM
So, IYO, what makes KC so special?

Moooo

Until you begin to live in other places, you will easily overlook the simple things that make Kansas City great. For starters- the old architecture in the city is something to behold. The idea to model a section of a city after a European city probably didn't hold water in the beginning, but now it's a rare treat considering the suburban sprawls going on in every city. The tree-line boulevards are also a thing of beauty. I'll never forget one writer when he remarked, "Kansas City has to be the only major city in the world where even the "slums" still have a yard to play in." And it's true!

The history of jazz in the town is remarkable. The history of some of its past denizens is interesting. The food is outstanding! But, what seperates KC from other cities is the people. Kansas Citians are not naive, but they are openly pleasant to strangers and I can't begin to tell you how every time I take a girlfriend or some friends from Denver to a Chiefs game - how they are impressed by the city and how nice everyone is.

I miss it. But, if all goes well- a company flew me out there last week for an interview and if they offer me the job- I'll be back.

1) My favorite thing about KC is the grid layout of the town. It makes it very hard to get lost in. St. Louis -- with all it's gated communities, gated-off streets, one ways and cobbling together of streets -- is a difficult town to navigate, so I appreciate the difference. And don't get me started on HWY 40 in St. Louis (hey, let's raise the speed limit to 55 mph and still use the incredibly tight-turning entrance and exit ramps. That won't cause traffic problems...)

2) The fountains and tree-lined boulevards. As someone said, even the ghetto doesn't look so bad. That's a rarity.

3) The attitude. There's definitely a difference between KC people and St. Louis people. It's nice to be around people that don't have a superiority complex ... and then try to claim that they don't have a superiority complex, that KC people have an inferiority complex. Right.

4) The 'cool' area for young professionals to live. I don't know an under-30 in their right mind that wouldn't choose living off the Plaza over living on Washington in St. Louis.

5) And, of course, the Royals and Chiefs!

True Dat. Having lived there and here in San Diego. That is exactly how I would describe it.

KC is not small by any means, but that is what it feels like. Its a big city with a small town atmosphere, everything feels slower paced and more relaxed. I miss that for sure.

I've lived in KC, Springfield, and a town so small there wasn't a single stoplight in the entire COUNTY. I don't see anything special about KC.

That being said I do love to eat BBQ when I'm up there, and the plaza is cool, I guess (used to be a lot better when it didn't have a bunch of chain stores).

I was born and raised in KC. When you're born and raised anywhere, it just becomes as natural as a pair of jeans. You never really even think about the town's shortcomings until you move away. I moved to Jacksonville, FL 22 yrs ago and at first it was culture shock. Believe it or not, this place was more of a cowtown than KC. I missed the jazz, blues, barbq, chiefs, nightlife, etc.

Now that the Jags are here, this place has doubled in size and passed up KC. I could never go back except to visit for Thanksgiving.

That was not really a museum back then, they got a new director and one of my classmates is the main assistants, they have been making it more of a musuem since the renovations...

Kansas City needs some sort of big tourist monument. St. Louis has the arch, San Antonio has the Tower of the Americas, Seattle has the Space Needle...what does Kansas City have? They should build a really, really big statue of a horse that can be seen from space.

The Plaza of course. I think its a decent attraction in kc, kind of.

KC holds a lot of sentimental value for me. It's where I grew up, lost my virginity and graduated from high school. I get nostalgic just driving around the city, a lot of awesome childhood memories and Sunday afternoons cheering for the chiefs until my voice was hoarse. Also remembering all those great Royals games I watched and remembering where I sat in the 84 playoffs and 85 World Series. I don't really give a shit what appeal it has towards people who aren't from KC, the city will always be a special place for me. Oh and one other thing............

What the **** is so special about St. Louis? An oversized croquet wicket is not a landmark.

When we starting agian???


Oh and KC really needs to PR the WW1 momument more then it does on a national level...

As soon as the temps drop below heat stroke level.
Highs in the 70's is always good. Prolly mid-late September since that's more ideal temps.

KC is a nice city. Good standard of living for most residents, clean, good looking.
BBQ capital of the world
You've got the Chiefs, Jayhawks and Royals.

I agree. St. Lous is about 1/3 ghetto anyway. They need to clean that place the fk up

What makes KC so special?


Hmmm...

Must be the higher crime rate in all crimes than say... New York, and beats Oakland in 4 out of 7 catagories.

What? Don't believe me. Have a look for yourself...

This thread is making me want to abandon everything and move to KC. I haven't been there since 1968 and since I was all of one at the time, I don't remember a whole heckuva lot.
