Reasons to Move to Kansas City

So you are looking for a change, you want to move somewhere, but you aren’t quite sure where? Let us recommend a place we love—Kansas City! Living in Kansas City is an exciting and smart choice you can make, no matter your age. Here are some of our top reasons we think you should move to Kansas City.

The food.

Aside from the famous barbeque, there is something for every type of food preference, from burger bars, to Mexican food, to pizza and Italian, and of course some of the best fried chicken you’ll ever eat.

The sports.

Despite teams that don’t usually do too well, Kansas City is loyal to their hometown teams and they know how to throw a wicked tailgate party. Arrowhead Stadium is home to the loudest fans in professional sports and the finest tailgating anywhere in the country, college or pro and KC folks won’t hesitate telling you that KC is home of the CHIEFS.

The holidays.

Christmas in Kansas City is a citywide effort and the downtown area and The Plaza all lit up rivals even the most beautiful European cities at night.

The commuter life.

Traffic in Kansas City is a breeze! How many metros can you say this about? For a city with nearly 2.5 million people in it, KC’s somehow gets away with a smooth-flowing grid.

The growing tech scene.

Kansas City ranked third in the country for tech job growth in 2013, with a 3.8% increase in tech job openings and they’ve got the fastest internet bandwidth on the earth thanks to Google Fiber.

The Plaza.

This shopping district is still going strong after all these years. Supplemented by top notch bars and restaurants, the Country Club Plaza is one of America’s hidden gems.

The brewery.

Boulevard Brewing Co. makes some of the best craft beers in the country, and it’s the host of many weddings for local residents.

Well… that’s only a few we could think of off the top of our head. Have we convinced you to move to Kansas City yet?
