My Neighborhood Recommendations

What I Liked Most
Kansas city was a vibrant and exciting town.  There was always something going on.  I was housed right downtown and in walking distance of most anything.  It was an enjoyable city to explore.  My favorite thing in KC was calling 3 Girls for a ‘drive-by’.  Best cupcakes I’ve ever had!

What I liked Least
I was in KC during the winter time.  Although I still had an enjoyable time, I would love to return during the summer.
