On the lighter side of KC MO, we drove through a really nice residential area where they could have filmed a new reality tv series - MO Mansions (Emi's idea). Nearby was a newer shopping district called Country Club Plaza. Unfortunately, the gondola boat rides were closed, but we saw quite a few of the many water fountains in KC MO
KC is much hillier and rockier than we expected. But the barbecue excellence was not a surprise. We had a fantastic barbecue dinner at Fiorella's Jack Stack Barbeque. Food, service, location, and atmosphere were superb.
Afterwards, we drove across the river to KC KS (simply does not have the same ring to it), and headed off to Fayetteville, Arkansas. The kids wanted to stay in KC MO overnight, but the itinerary could not be altered.
