Explore KCK: A City Guide
Divided by the Missouri River, Kansas City, MO and Kansas City, KS bring us a tale of two cities; each holding its own unique character and story. Kansas City, Missouri is undoubtedly the more famous of the two but Kansas City, Kansas, better known as KCK, should not be overlooked. I’ve spent the last few months scouring the city for all the swoon worthy KCK spots. I hope you’re ready for a run down of delicious food, drink, history, and - because I’m always here to help you do it for the insta - IG worthy murals. Your crash course on KCK starts now.
don’t worry tourists and kc lovers alike. this wouldn’t be a kansas city guide without bbq, would it?
