I have a confession to make - I grew up a Missouri girl. I lived in Kansas City, MO and went to school in Kansas City, MO and didn't have many reasons to cross the border. My entire life seemed to be in my Missouri bubble and I had no idea what I was missing on the Kansas side of town! My grandpa had grown up in Wyandotte County, and he can still name what block everyone lived on and where all the churches were. He is a history buff, so I grew up hearing about Lewis and Clark and John Brown and all of the other influential men and women who made an impact on KCK. I could sit and listen to his stories for hours! It was until I moved back to Kansas City after college that I started exploring all of the neighborhoods he had been telling me about. So of course, I was thrilled when Visit Kansas City Kansas asked me to be their "off the beaten path" blogger this year! I love any excuse to spend more time in the city my family came from.
