Travel Tips for Kansas City

just a little tidbit i...

by TheFish

just a little tidbit i found... every day Excite Travel has a featured city on their website. today (4 september 2000) i went to look at fares and lo and behold, the featured city was kansas city. i enjoyed what they had to say and knew it all to be true, so i thought i'd share it with you.

(and remember, it's not plagarism if you give 'em credit..) 'KANSAS CITY, 250 miles due west of St Louis, straddles the
state line between Kansas and Missouri. Virtually all its main points
of interest are on the Missouri side, where the fountains,
boulevards, and Art Deco and Mediterranean-style buildings, and
the slow but encouraging revitalization of downtown, are unusual
and welcome features in a Midwestern city. Kansas City, Kansas,
on the other hand, is a dull sprawl of suburbs that doesn't have
much to attract visitors.

Kansas City was a convenient staging post for 1830s wagon trains
heading west. Its consequent prosperity – and rough and tumble
'sin city' image – was brought to an abrupt end by the Civil War.
However, its fortunes revived in the 1870s, when the railroads
brought the boom in meat packing that was responsible for the
development of the huge stockyards, which finally closed down in
1992.

Thanks to Mayor Pendergast, an outrageous figure with whom the
city still has a love-hate relationship, its many jazz clubs continued
to sell alcohol during Prohibition. As in Chicago and New Orleans,
speakeasies, brothels and gambling dens went hand in hand with
superlative jazz – and, to a lesser extent, blues – spawning the
careers of Count Basie, Duke Ellington and, in the Fifties, Charlie
Parker. KC's resurgent jazz scene, fine restaurants, high-spending
Royals and Chiefs sports teams, and theme parks help make it a
popular short-break destination for the people of the western
heartland.'

There is cheering coming from Kauffman Stadium?

by aphrodyte

Admittedly I am not a fan of baseball.

I have very little interest watching, learning baseball lingo, or following the every day life of the highly paid ball players. My impressions of baseball are of publicized contract negotiations, strikes, and how much it is going to cost me, the tax payer. However, I did watch the Sosa/McGuire homerun contest, and I was intrigued. Perhaps I was wrong about baseball, maybe it IS worth watching. But then, there is some speculation about the alleged legality of the "herbal" remedies McGuire was taking and what's this about Sosa's corked bat?

Anyhow, that leaves me back to square one... telling you objectively about our Royals Baseball.

Here in Kansas City, Royals baseball is a love/hate relationship. With the exception of the die hard fans...you love them when they win, and you can't stand them when they lose.

Originally named Royals Stadium in 1973, this year will mark the 31th anniversary of its inception. The park was re-named in 1993, in honor of Ewing M. Kauffman. Kauffman was the owner of the ball team from 1968 until his death 1993. Many fans believe that it was under the foundation of Kauffman's ownership and motivation that the Royals flourished. The current ower of the team is David Glass, former CEO of Wal-mart.

The stadium originally featured a 12-story high scoreboard containing 16,320 light bulbs and the largest privately owned fountain which is over 300 feet wide. From the mid to late 90's Kauffman Stadium underwent changes that included changing the artificial turf to real grass, the addition of more seats, a colored Sony Jumbo Tron, dougout suites, and a picnic pavilion for large groups.

Check out the website it is very informative. You will be able to find out everything there is to know about the team from stats to positions to schedules and everything else in between. You may also order tickets online and see what kind of view your seat is going have.

All in all...if you go...have a hot dog for me...and PLAY BALL!

The infamous Jesse James

by asturnut

Visit the infamous Jesse James Farm & Museum in the suburbs of Kansas City in Liberty, MO. This is a really interesting little place. For a $6.50 donation you can learn all about Jesse James and his family and see authentic memorabilia. Begin your visit with a short movie followed by a self guided tour of the small indoor musuem. Finally a guided tour of Jessie James historic home completes your visit. The folks at the museum are very knowledgable and willing to answer questions and dispell any rumors concerning Jessie James.

Please note they do not allow any photography within the house or museum.

On the way you can enjoy the beautiful, green rolling hills of Missouri! There are many interesting places on the way to stop, including some vineyards where you can get good Missouri wine and other local products.

This is the building where you...

by brdwtchr

This is the building where you can buy tickets to see the Truman home. It is about a block from the courthouse on Main. Next door to this building is the Marshall home and jail museum. Across the street is a small parking lot that is handy place to leave your car and walk around down town for shopping. On opposite street corner is a historic marker from the Civil War.

Let's Do Fondue!!!

by Jewelslover about The Melting Pot

How about some fondue? I heard many wonderful things about The Melting Pot, so my husband and I went here to celebrate our 5 year wedding anniversary and it was great! We called ahead for reservations, so we had our own private dining experience in a booth where no other patrons could see us, unless they were walking by, and if we wanted to we could have pulled the curtains so no one could have seen us.

We ordered the meal for two which comes with salads, a cheese fondue (we substitued the chocolate desert fondue instead) and a main course. You get to select the flavor of fondue for each of the courses. Each table has it's own cooking top, so you basically cook your own food. We had teryaki sirloin, marinated chicken, and another marinated beef, since neither of us like seafood much. I think the meal usually comes with shrimp and fish. They were very accomodating when we asked for substitutions. Vegetables and mushrooms also come with the main course.

The dessert fondue was to die for! We chose the Yen Yang chocolate fondue. It was white chocolate and dark chocolate together in one pot, but the more you dip the more it mixes together. It came with fresh strawberries, pineapple, brownies, pound cake, cheesecake, and marshmallows for dipping.
