The City of Fountains they call it. Also the Heartland of America, Cowtown and Paris of the Plains. Living away from Kansas City for the past seven-eight years or so has certainly made me appreciate it more now that I’m back. The city has also made it easier for me to do that with the development of downtown, Power and Light District, Sprint Center and the increasing culture and nightlife. Including the tons of festivals, live music and art scene. That said, the fountains are really one thing that makes this city unique.
