I am a litte upset to not see Kansas City on the list. I may be a bit biased as I have lived here my whole life, but I must say Kansas City is a great city. While many equate KC with Bar-B-Q there is so much more to the city. IT has a downtown on the cusp of a rennissance great urban neighborhoods within close proximity to downtown, the Beautiful Country Club Plaza with all its shops, resturants and fountains. Kansas City has a spirit all its own and is one of the greatest mid-west cities.
