Welcome to Kansas City!  Kansas City was founded as a dusty western town turned railroad terminus, and is today a 21st century hub of arts and architecture, music, craft brewing, museums, and national sport (home to MLB Champion Kansas City Royals and MLS Champion Sporting KC).  Kansas City is also called the City of Fountains: there are more fountains in Kansas City than any other city on earth, including Vatican City.
