This is for the Kansas City, Missouri metro area. It wouldn't be right to have a blog in Missouri without talking about BBQ. Plus it is nice to have a place to display some interesting images, videos and places worth visiting when here.

The best and first choice is always Q39 in Westport. Best ribs. To me this is kind of a German atmosphere and always busy. They are fast friendly servers once you get to sit down.
Zarda BBQ in Blue Springs, Missouri on south 7 Highway. This is the one I go to the most often.
Jackstack. The pork and beef.
Sorry, I don't think Plow Boys in Blue Springs is Kansas City BBQ. I don't like the taste of the food, sauces or the service. It seems more like TN style. But they have their own style of customers that do like it. It looks more like a fast food place rather than atmosphere.

Fountains on the Plaza.
Beautiful places and things to do in KC
Powell Gardens with the annual butterfly festival is so worth taking the kids to. They are very accommodating to families. It is in August, at the hottest time of the year.
