What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Kansas City

I am elderly and live alone. At two different neighbors keep watch in case I should need help. People seem to help one another here.

I like that it's close to north Kansas City and downtown. I like that it's near the highway. We're able to live in the suburban neighborhood but very close to the urban area. This area is also up and coming.

I like that it's quiet. I enjoy the accessibility of stores and other conveniences. I like the family style homes.

We are located near several restaurants. We have chains to mom and pop places. We enjoy going to a local Mexican restaurant that his been in the area for 16 years

Captains Bar and Grill it's mostly a bedroom. Community not a lot of businesses and fluff The people are mostly child bearing upper middle class people and professionals

I live in a neighborhood of cute old houses, we are within walking distance of coffee shops, restaurants, bars, etc. there is a sense of community. There is a lot of history here.

All About

Living in Kansas City, MO

As the larger of two adjacent cities with the same name, Kansas City occupies over 300 square miles of prime land at the confluence of the Kansas and Missouri Rivers in northwestern Missouri. Across the Kansas River, the rail yards and barbecue joints of smaller Kansas City beckon. With the city's dizzying array of cultural institutions, great places to eat and a surprisingly low cost of living, you'll feel right at home in centrally located "K.C."

Kansas City Attractions


Oddly enough, Kansas City's most famous attraction might be the more than 200 working fountains that dot its central core. Rome, Italy, is the only municipality that's known to have a greater absolute number of fountains than K.C. These distinctive water features attract thousands of tourists every year.

Tourists and residents alike flock to Arrowhead Stadium to watch the Kansas City Chiefs during football season, and to Kauffman Stadium to cheer on the Kansas City Royals during baseball season.

Kansas City also boasts a vibrant downtown nightlife district known as City Market. It's also the spiritual home of world-famous Kansas City-style barbecue. Highbrow cultural institutions include the Kansas City Repertory Theatre, the Kansas City Symphony and the Kansas City Ballet.

Kansas City Natural Beauty


The view from any tall building in K.C. offers a sweeping look at the region's two broad river valleys as well as the fertile uplands that define them. In addition to the pocket parks that dot Kansas City's neighborhoods, the area features a number of notable open spaces. Just 10 to 15 miles east of the city lie several popular parks, including Burr Oak Woods, Monkey Mountain Park Reserve and Fleming Park. These expanses of oak savanna are popular with hikers, bikers, joggers and fishers. Hunting for quail, grouse and pheasant is popular on certain designated parcels as well.
