Kansas City is 4th Most Underrated American City

Yahoo had a story about the most underrated cities in America and K.C. is in the Top 5.
Here's the story: With downtown's multi-billion-dollar face-lift, pedestrian-friendly boulevards, and claim to having the most fountains of any city outside of Rome, Kansas City is definitely deserving of buzz. Plus, history buffs can learn about the city's pioneer roots at the Arabia Steamboat Museum, while sports fans can visit the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum, a tribute to the excellent athletes forced to play in segregated leagues. Blues and jazz clubs also abound in this city, where musicians like Count Basie and Charlie Parker got their start, particularly in the historic 18th and Vine District, home of the American Jazz Museum . Once you've worked up an appetite, you're also in for a treat, as this Midwestern city also boasts some of the country's best barbecue.
