This is where both my brothers' have called home for a few years now. All my 3 nieces are born here with the newest arrival in Aug'07.
The neighbourhood of Shawnee Mission is a nice place to raise a family. Kansas City being a flat state, all you see is whide, open places dotted by farmland, lakes and trees.
Lots of clean, fresh air here I must say which I completely enjoy when I take walks around the neighbourhood.
All my trips to Kansas City have always been marked by great lunches and dinners as these are perfect venues for reunions with family and friends whom I only see one a year.
Then of course, there's the shopping as I always find that I'm ill-prepared for the harsh cold winters here. Maybe it's just my excuse to go shopping!
As this was my first autumn visit, my friend Lauren suggested we visit Overland Park Arboretum and Botanical Gardens. With the crazy weather that we have been experiencing, even in early Oct, the temperature was too warm for the leaves to change colour.
Nonetheless, the gardens were beautiful and well-worth a visit.
Located in the midwest, Kansas City is a great place to start a roadtrip towards any direction.
So far, we have been to Colorado Springs and South Dakota. In 2007, my friend Lauren, her husband Chun and I decided to explore Arkansas targeting Eureka Springs with a stopover in Carthage, Missouri.
- Pros:Relaxed family time
- Cons:Too flat for my liking
- In a nutshell:This is where my family reunions are made
For something upscale, open-air and beautifully decorated with lights especially during Christmas, head on to Town... more travel advice
