Sitting on the border of Missouri and Kansas, Kansas City offers residents of the two states a metropolis of opportunity. Very well known for its culture, delicious BBQ and rhythmic Jazz set the tone of KC culture. The historic neighborhood of 18th & Vine, also known as the Jazz District, keeps the city's heritage alive, while the neighborhood of Fairfaz offers great opportunities for industrial ventures. Residents do like to note that Kansas City, KS has a more small-town feel, while Kansas City, MO, offers a more urban living.
