Welcome Home

Welcome to Kansas City, where we abound in pride for our hometown, and we are excited to share our world-renowned barbecue! To say there is a lot of heart here is an understatement. The KC Heartland is home to more than 2 million people who live in urban, suburban, and rural communities – in Kansas City there is a place for everyone. We have rich cultural experiences, a vibrant metro and thriving businesses. If you visit us, we promise you will fall in love with this city too!

Here are a few Kansas City highlights we’d like to share that might nudge you to joining us here:

Ijon on Kansas City

I am a nurse in the NICU at Children’s Mercy. While I was pursuing my degree in nursing, I made the move from the St. Louis area to Kansas City.

There is so much to love about KC – the nightlife, the barbecue, manageable cost of living, activities and events around this city, and most importantly – the donut options!

Kansas City and Children’s Mercy are now my home and I couldn’t be happier.
