So, it's no surprise that Forbes named Kansas City one of the best places to travel to in 2023. This week will definitely be a week to visit KC as the NFL Draft will be set at Union Station—this city of for single people, married people, and families. There really is so much to do and something for everyone, and there is no surprise how so many people fall in love with Kansas City.

All of this feeds into the general spirit of support for the arts, including First Fridays in the Crossroads, open gallery nights, street art festivals that draw big crowds, open-air barbecue competitions in the summer and institutions like the beloved American Jazz Museum.

Yes, there is crime. Yes, there are parts that are not sure but the good is our saying the bad and Forbes didn't just say go to this particular tourist attraction it mentions the entire city. So, if you have a chance this summer take a weekend and go see a concert. Eat some amazing BBQ, and watch a baseball game. Go to the many museums and I know you will fall in love with this city just as much as I have.
