moving here???

by cjg1

HI.
I am considering moving to the KC area for work. Only thing i know about the place is that the train to CA and Chicago goes through.
Can anyone tell me what it is to live here. I prefer city life. walk where i need to go. a good local pub. bakeries to bread from the big store. etc.
thanks
chris

Well - to misquote Dorothy - it ain't New York. Isn't Kansas just as about as far as you can get from an international border in the 48 contiguous states? Perhaps a point to consider for someone who likes travel?

Do you know if any airlines use it as a hub?

Re: moving here???

by moe49

It is a nice town, nice people, but not much for the city life. It is extremely spralled and there are not many places where you can walk everywhere you would need to go. Dowtown cowtown is (mostly) just for the 9-5, but the plaza/westport area is where the nice pubs tend to be. Public transportation is limited to the bus. The airport is a bit outside of the city and i don't think that any airlines use it for a hub...southwest maybe???
And if you weren't aware the vast majority of KC is in MO.

Get in touch with dave (vt: "shdw100"). He lives there.

good luck,

PS: what's up with the trip? Still schedule to leave after the world series next year?

Re: moving here???

Chris,
As for the airport, this is not considered to be a hub city, but all the major airlines do fly into here. If you want to live in KC, MO, I would recommend down around the Plaza area. Things are relatively close, and there is plenty of shopping and things to do. Westport would be the place to go for the pubs and other shopping, it's a bit trendy. You could also live in Overland Park, KS, which ajoins the KC area. It is a nice place to live, although much more expensive than the KC, MO side of course. There are some areas that I would recommend not moving to, as well, so if you want to know, just email me, as well as with any other questions you might have. One last thing, there is no elevated train or subway here, so unless you have a car, the bus system is the only way to get around.
saludos
dave

Hi I live in KC. People usually refer to Kansas City as a big small town. I love it here. True it is no New York but it has other great quallities. I saw people mentioned Westport and the plaza area to you already. Brookside is another area that would be good. Its a good location that has stores, bars ect to walk to. Its real close to the Plaza. If you have any questions just let me know?

Kansas City is one of the best kept secrets around! 1.5 Million live here and in the surrounding 14 counties. Known for it's barbeque, jazz and warm people, Kansas City is a great place to visit, and even better place to live. Wonderful restaurants, jazzy nightlife, and lots more! Check out this website whose sole purpose is to show you why Kansas City is a great place to live, work and play. Try www.smartkc.com, and take a virtual tour. You will be surprised at what you find!

Re: moving here???

by Camille_W

I agree with the posters that if you want to be able to get around by foot the best place to live is the Westport/Plaza area. I live right across Brush Creek from the Plaza and I have everything I need within a few blocks. Brookside is fairly compact as well, but it doesn't offer nearly the variety of things that Westport and the Plaza do.

KC is a great town, though I do miss mountains and ocean.

Re: moving here???

by Ashbif

KC is a fabulous place! You probably want to live in Brookside or the Plaza to find that urban life you want. Pssibly midtown too.

by malalaura

as far as walking to the store and getting fresh bread? kc ain't new york nor a town in europe. youll need to drive everywhere and drive lots! westport has got a lot of privatly owned places but you dont wanna live there, too much crime and one weekends its a nightmare. there are cops everywhere.

Re: moving here???

Look, I've been there last month for vacations (i stayed at Independence, Missouri), and visited KCity. Westport has a lot of life, and so does the Plaza center (really nice and old spanish fashioned buildings, with a lot of life too). You have to avoid only Prospect Road, it is the ghetto, I arrived there because of an accident and it was scary even being 3pm. Kansas has a lot of nigth life (jazz clubs) and it is really nice if you live in the plaza or westport. By the way, the airport is an hour away driving from the city, which is an advantage so you wont hear airplane noise : ) dont think it twice and go there for living!

Travel Tips for Kansas City

The Plaza

by asturnut

The Plaza is the most beautiful and interesting area in Kansas City. It is a gorgeously architectured shopping district modeled after Sevilla, Spain. There's great shopping and dining and many wonderful photo ops. (See my travelogue.) This wonderful district is surrounded by a residential district with gorgeous old homes that are also worth a look.

Westport Art Fair

by basstbn

Colorful event held each September features 150-200 booths containing the work of mostly local artists in a wide range of media. Includes live jazz and food vendors.

Westport is one of the oldest neighborhoods of KC, and is located in midtown in the area of Westport Road and Broadway.

The Temple

by shdw100

The Community of Christ (formally the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints) has their world headquarters here. The religion has about a quarter of a million followers. Their temple is located across the street from the LDS visitors center, and is an interesting structure, winning numerous awards for it's unusual architecture. They do offer tours of the building, as well as some information on their beliefs

LeCompton

by BruceDunning

This once was the capitol of Kansas when it was a territorial State. Things and politics changed that. James Lane, a Senator of suspicious repute started Lane University in the town. When it was to be the State capitol, the population burst to 5,000. Due to political maneuvering by Lane, the capitol changed to Topeka over the fight of free vs slave state status. That crashed the future of Lecompton. Now having 600 residents, it languished for years, and has no commerce, but does have the museums. Lane Museum and Constitution Hall are nice visits to take. They have a lot of artifacts from the mid 1800's to early 1900's.

New Life in the Historic Jazz District

by basstbn about The Gem Theatre

Old-timers living in the vicinity remember when the Gem Theatre was one of the few places where black youngsters could see their movie cowboy favorites such as Tom Mix and Hopalong Cassiday. The Gem was a social gathering place for blacks in a then-segregated US. After integration and the influx of bigger cinema houses, the Gem fell on hard times. It has now been brought back to life, and plays host to black film festivals, a jazz concert series, and other special events. Schedule of events available through the American Jazz Museum.
