~Kansas City Missouri~

Kansas City Skyline at Night



Kansas City covers parts of Jackson, Clay, Cass, and Platte Counties in Missouri
It is the largest city in Jackson County but Independence is the County Seat
Situated at the point the Kansas River flows into the Missouri River
It lies along the State boundary between Missouri and Kansas
Just to the West of the State Line is Kansas City, Kansas


Abbreviated as KCMO, Kansas City is the largest City in Missouri
The entire metropolitan area (in both states) is approximately 2 million
My town, Parkville is a separate City with it's own government and police
But actually contained in the geographical area of of Greater Metro Kansas City
And located just Northwest of Downtown Kansas City, Missouri
