What Bert Has To Say About Kansas City Metro Area


Kansas City is a large, prosperous, self-sufficient and culturally rich city located astride the Missouri River. The downtown area and most of the population are on the older Missouri side, filled with shaded neighborhoods and mixed development. For the past 20 years the big growth has been on the Kansas side to the southwest in suburbs like Overland Park, Lenexa, and Shawnee.
