I enjoyed KC last time I went.  It's a pretty spiffy town.

I was surprised to see Cleveland on there. Nice picture too.

You may have the Plaza, Swope Park, the Zoo, the museum district, and the airport on the Missouri side, but you also have one of the highest crime rates in the US and some of the most socially dysfunctional people i have ever met.

My only tip about Cumberland Island is that there are no cars or real roads, which is awesome, but if you bring a wheelie cooler beware that those things don't roll well on the sand and it's 1.5 miles from the dock to the beach so you'll be dragging that thing like a sled.  Pack light.

If you're from the area, you're looking at that map and trying to figure out how old it is.  Fairfax Airport still there, 635 and 470 still proposed, K-10 was a two-lane road... can't be any newer than 1968.

I have had a good short life. Been to 49 of the 50 states. Trying to figure out a way to make it to North Dakota. Its amazing what a camper can do.

I consulted at American Century around 2000 for a year and basically lived in the Plaza. Very cool place. Westport, not so much. I have heard that the Power and Light district is where it's happening these days. We should take a trip. 3 hour drive ain't bad.

From Florida, go northwest until everything is really flat. Then bear due north. Can't miss it.

Cumberland Island sounds a lot like Tybee Island but with less to do.

Go up the I-95 an hour and visit Savannah.

That is awesome, will probably send it to my MO friends and relatives.

KC is cool, although the last time I was there I was just a block away when gunshots almost hit the mayor at The Plaza. My family goes back generations around Gallatin and Lexington.

I live along MI's Gold Coast and have been to GR a few times. I think it's a great little city, we like to go see the Griffins (still dislike the RW though). Oval Beach in Saugatuck is breathtaking and rivals any CA beach.

I haven't been to either HI or ID, two of five states I have yet to visit.

P&L is only for douchebags and bachelorette parties. So many Affliction t-shirts in such a small area.

Westport is cool now. Mostly locally-owned restaurants and bars. Lot of hipsters, though.

The Plaza is  almost exactly like you'd remember it. Just swap out some of the stores. Beautiful this time of year.

It actually deserves its spot, IMHO. Between the World War I museum, new performing arts center, Power and Light, The College Basketball Hall of Fame, the 18th and Vine Jazz District, and the Negro Leagues HoF (with The Legends/Sporting Park/Kansas Speedway/world's largest water slide ten minutes away in KCK), it's gotten worlds better than it was even ten years ago.

Pretty much. Downtown is a lot nicer(and safer) than it was even a few years ago.

Union Station is a nice area to visit too.

It's will probaly sound corny but I liked Benjamin Ranch. Had fun there as a kid.

My in-laws live in North Dakota.
The oil boom going on up there is causing some problems:
Overloaded trucks carrying equipment have caused serious deterioration of interstates and highways and city streets.
Rent, hotel, and campground prices are through the roof because of oil workers looking for accommodations.
Crime rates, drunk driving, and assaults on women are up.  Those are symptoms of highly paid oil workers with no place to spend money.

So go in midsummer and have a good time!

Yeah, that, City Market, and Crown Center. P&L is walkable from City Market, and CC is walkable from Liberty Memorial/Westport, but it's weird how the areas are broken up just enough that you need to drive. If everything was more centralized it would be perfect.

As someone who's bounced around the country a little bit and now resides Spring Lake, I couldn't agree more with #1.  That being said, I have no idea wth "Gold Coast" refers to.  I assume I reside in it (or very near it), but I've never once heard it referred to as Gold Coast.

Go to Eastern ND.  It's out of the Bakken so you 'll be avoiding much of these issues.  I hear Devil's Lake is cool.

How is the Grand Canyon not on the list?

A few years ago my gal and i flew into Phoenix, rented a couple bikes out of Tempe, and took the long way to the Grand Canyon.  Went through Prescott, Sedona, and Flagstaff.  Awesome trip.  The scenery changed every 30 minutes.  Came back to town via Winslow.   Awesome trip

/Fun Time rentals in Tempe rocks.  None of the BS that the other joints have.

Are you forgetting about that time a bunch of you illiterate, inbred, racist Missouri bastards burned Lawrence to the ground?  Or Allen Fieldhouse, the most formidable home advantage in all of sports?  Or the picture of Inigo Montoya (dressed as Mandy Patinkin) in the Green Room at the theater on campus?  That last one is clearly the awesomest.

It's an old Antler's chant. It's based on old Star article that claim that Lawerance had the highest rate of trannies per capita.

I have a relative in Vegas.  Every once in a while I ask him how the job market is out there.  He says it's abysmal.  And also, once you've been to Vegas once or twice the 'feel' just wears off.
