5 cool facts about Kansas City

Kansas City is a 15-county metropolitan area that is split between the States of Kansas and Missouri in the heartland of the United States. The city is perched at the intersection of Missouri River and the Kansas River and it is the second largest metropolitan area in Missouri after Greater St. Louis as well as the largest metropolitan area in Kansas. People who want to visit the city would want to know the following cool facts about it.

1. Did you know that Kansas City has more miles of boulevards than Paris and more fountains than any city except Rome - yep - that is true...it is as beautiful as Rome and Paris put together.

2. Have you ever been to Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in KC? Well, if you haven't, you might be interested to know that it’s not the exquisite paintings inside the museum that draws the largest crowds - it is the Egyptian Meretites the elaborate funerary assemblage from the 2,300-year-old noblewoman’s tomb.

3. Are you a shopaholic? Well, meet your peers in the KC's first suburban shopping center that is modeled after Spain’s Sevilla - the Plaza

4. KC's Swope Park is one of the largest urban parks in the world. At 1,805 acres it is double the size of New York City’s 843-acre Central Park; and so, even if Kansas City is not among the largest metropolises in the US, it is one of the best places to work.

5. If you have been wondering why Kansas City is so popular with the tourists, don't anymore. They come to see the Kansas City Zoo, Starlight Theatre, Lakeside Nature Center, Kansas City Community Gardens, Southeast Community Center as well as enjoy park amenities such as golf and disc golf courses, a pool, ball diamonds, soccer fields and various trails.

If you have never been to KC, I would advise you to put it in your bucket list - and this is not to go and make mega deals - but to go and work in a relaxing environment that does not put your health considerations on the back burner.
