Kansas City, Missouri, is divided into several districts. To the East is Independence, home of President Harry S. Truman. Truman-related historical sites abound, including the Truman Library, the Harry S. Truman Historical Site, and the Truman home. The Community of Christ Temple and Auditorium is a stunning religious site with interest for all faiths, and just next to it is the Mormon Visitor Center, which offers insight into this unique faith and its impact on the area.

Kansas City, Missouri, has more highway miles per capita than any other city in the Unites States, which you’ll discover as you use major highways to cross and investigate your destination. Highway 435 embraces the city, encircling it.

WhatsCheaper.com invites you to visit Kansas City Missouri’s thriving downtown, the central and southern section of the city. The Country Club Plaza, built in the style of Seville, Spain, offers fine shops and restaurants as well as an original sculpture by the Italian artist Donatello Gabrielli, “Pomona”, Goddess of the Orchards, the only twin of which is cast in marble and resides in the palace of the king of Thailand. Near the Plaza is the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, an encyclopedic collection of art ranging from ancient to modern, and from countries throughout the world.

Just north of the Plaza is the historical district of Westport where great coffee and great beer may be found. Kansas City barbeque is legendary, beloved by people all around the country. WhatsCheaper.com recommends trying each famous restaurant to make up your own mind.

Farther north still is the Crown Center, heritage of the Hall family, which is often known as a “city within a city” and offers three stories of glittering stores and entertainments for the whole family. Also in the Crown Center is the Ice Terrace, Kansas City’s outdoor ice skating rink, an exciting excursion for skilled and new skaters alike. Near the Crown Center is historic Union Station, with constantly rotating exhibits and local talent presenting plays, Irish music workshops and concerts, and movies on Kansas City’s largest 3-D screen, which is four stories high.

Another fascinating area of Kansas City is the River Market, a thriving outdoor market which offers some of the best food and local vendors selling everything from vegetables to honey. This is also a historic site, begun some 150 years ago by a couple of enterprising brothers who foresaw the busy economic site Kansas City would become.

WhatsCheaper.com recommends lastly the National World War I Museum in downtown Kansas City as the top site in the city. Vacationers can first see the Liberty Memorial that stands outside the museum, then can learn about the Great War once inside. The museum has numerous exhibits that help vacationers learn about the first great war of the 20th century.
