I travelled to Kansas City, Missouri in mid-November for a 2-day meeting, enabling me to spend the better part of three days touring the downtown core of the city. When the meeting wrapped up on a Thursday night, I spent the weekend in this area of the USA, touring 'Kansas' and the southwestern part of Missouri in a rental car. I did this because I had a second meeting scheduled for the following Tuesday in upstate New York. It just did not make any sense to fly all the way back to the Atlantic coast of Canada on Friday and then fly west again on Monday!
I really enjoyed my six days in the mid-west, and this page describes my experiences during the 'Missouri' part of the trip.
Originally built in 1914 as one of the main railroad links to western USA, Union Station was recently refurbished at a cost of $253 million to make it one of the premier attractions in Kansas City. One evening, I strolled down to admire its beauty and also enjoyed a great meal in one of its many new restaurants. This is the building that most impressed me in the city - more in 'Must See'!
