Tidbits to know about our metro area:

Johnson County lies within a transition zone where the North American eastern deciduous forests meet the tallgrass prairie. Where else in the country can you travel in a little over an hour from lush green, treed landscape to the vast open areas of the largest remnant of the tallgrass prairie left in the U.S.?

With 200 officially registered fountains, Kansas City is nicknamed the “City of Fountains”, rivaling only Rome, Italy in number;

We avidly support our world champion Kansas City Royals and Kansas City Chiefs;

We are home to the famed Country Club Plaza, a distinctive outdoor shopping and entertainment district designed to emulate Seville, Spain;

We brag about our Kansas City BBQ, which we believe is second to none;

We enjoy an eclectic local foodie, craft brewery and spirits scene;

We are home to a burgeoning revival of a once robust, pre-prohibition era grape-growing and wine-making industry;

While it can’t be measured, we are renowned for our down-to-earth midwestern hospitality.
