K.C made the list! Here's what they say:

With downtown's multi-billion dollar face-lift, pedestrian-friendly boulevards, and claim to having the most fountains of any city outside of Rome, Kansas City is definitely deserving of buzz. Plus, history buffs can learn about the underrated city's pioneer roots at the Arabia Steamboat Museum, while sports fans can visit the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum, a tribute to the excellent athletes forced to play in segregated leagues. Blues and jazz clubs also abound in this city where musicians like Count Basie and Charlie Parker got their start, particularly in the historic 18th and Vine District, where the American Jazz Museum is located

And they don't even mention BBQ. :shrug:

I think KC is rated about where it needs to be. Its not one of the top US cities, but far from the worst.

Olathe's in Kansas. :grr:

You can't hold that against Olathe. It's always sunny and 74 there.



Ok, I'm just fooling myself with that one.

Houston is an underrated city? Hard to believe when it's the 4th largest city in the states.

KC (well, overland park) seemed to me to be a pretty nice place to have a family.

KC is, quietly, a top 10 food city in the U.S. Combine that with being a top 10 arts city and you have the makings of a place I want to live.

KC, I MISS YOU ALREADY.

If your game doesn't work in a big city?

It probably isn't the city.

Why would anyone want to purposely marry young?

To experience divorce?

I always liked KC.

Of course, one of the most beautiful, young, blond, green-eyed girls to ever grace the planet lived in OP and, as a college student, willingly taught me the many forbidden yet treasured secrets of love. I shall always think of KC in the most appreciative terms.
