KC Named One of America’s Favorite Cities

Kansas City has more to feel good about than just the Royals this week.

A new survey from Travel + Leisure says KC is American’s No. 3 favorite city based on more than 50,000 votes ranking 38 different cities in various categories. Our fair city placed No. 1 when it came to Christmas lights, flea markets, affordability, good drivers and barbecue.

KC also ranked in the top 5 for many other categories, including the art scene, passionate sports fans and notable restaurants.

While it came it at No. 7 for Best Coffee Cities, Travel + Leisure noted that Kansas City coffee has quite the reputation thanks to names like Parisi and Thou Mayest. We think that merits a drink…perhaps a cup of something on special during KC Coffee and Tea Week, which features deals from both coffee spots.
