Kansas City, MO Overview

Most residents of Kansas City, Missouri, would have a difficult time pinpointing their favorite aspect of city life.  Would it be the European architecture and beauty of The Country Club Plaza with miles of twinkling holiday lights, or the Hallmark empire and Crown Center development of stylish shops and upscale condominiums.  The younger set would be more likely to select the 100-year-old zoo or the fascinating Worlds of Fun/Oceans of Fun amusement park.  Kansas City has enough cultural, recreational, and sports activities to fill every evening and weekend of the year’s calendar.  Fine museums, art galleries, theater, musicals, jazz, professional sports, and regional centers of knowledge and learning provide the finest advantage for urban living in America.  Combine these outstanding amenities with one of the nation’s most dynamic economies, and you have all the ingredients for an unparalleled quality of life.  Residential choices in Kansas City seem almost unlimited, from downtown lofts and renovated apartments to historic homes and condominiums in the Westport, Hyde Park, and Plaza areas.  Handsome older homes are scattered throughout the area surrounding the Nelson-Atkins Museum, and charming bungalows often mingle with magnificent mansions similar to those lining Ward Parkway.  Architecturally stimulating in both commercial and residential structures, Kansas City creates a welcoming and beautiful environment in which to live, work and play.  Block after block of handsome turn-of-the-century brick buildings stand proudly beside the towering high-rise configurations of glass and steel.  With its lovely boulevards, lush foliage and mature native trees, it is little wonder that this “City of Fountains” is no longer one of the nation’s best kept secrets.

The Temperature chart displays average high and low values for January and July, and is designed to provide an indication of both seasonal and daily temperature variability. The Weather Risk Index indicates the calculated risk of each type of weather event occurring in the future. This risk is based on historical localized storm events and weather patterns. The national average for each type of weather event equals a score of 100, so a score of 200 would represent twice the risk as the national average, and a score of 50 would represent half the risk of the national average.
