Kansas City

United States of America - Great Plains

Bring your appetite, sense of adventure and entire family to explore Kansas City. Straddling two states at the junction of the Kansas and Missouri rivers, this city is known for its barbecue, steaks and culture.

Still, there’s plenty more to discover in a metro area, including bustling Overland Park. Kansas City, in the heart of the Midwestern USA, produces high-quality beef that appears on plates at steakhouses around town.

The city also is known for its barbecue, and dozens of restaurants offer smoked beef, pulled pork, brisket and ribs. The tradition started in the 1920s when Henry Perry, known as the “father of Kansas City barbecue,” started selling smoked meats from a pushcart. Taste Perry’s legacy today at Arthur Bryant’s, but be sure to compare the fare at other restaurants. Every steakhouse and barbecue joint adds its own flavor to the city’s signature dishes.
