Kansas City: The City of Fountains
Kansas City is rich in history and abundant in future opportunities. Kansas City has been named "The City of Fountains" and is second only to Rome as the city with the most fountains in the world. The city has also earned the title of "Paris of the Plains," harkening back to the days when jazz and urban culture were beginning to flourish in the Midwest. It has won praise for being a place of enormous influence on the growth of jazz and blues styles, gaining nationwide recognition for its 18th and Vine District. The city is also known for its very own style of Kansas City Barbecue. Dining and entertainment options abound in the historic River Market, West Bottoms, and Westport District, in addition to the Country Club Plaza shopping center. Kansas City is on the rise, growing rapidly as it becomes a truly world-class city.
