Fried food lovers unite. Kansas City is your new coliving destination. One of the standout places in America to try the chicken and slow-cooked ribs; you will be spoilt for choice. Straddling the border between its namesake and Missouri, the city has become known not only for great barbecue but also because of its incredible jazz history. All displayed in the American Jazz Museum.
But what’s better than learning about something, than experiencing it? Kansas City is full of cool jazz. Just pop along to the Green Lady if you don’t believe us.
It’s a creative community that loves a good time and opening its doors to fun-loving travelers. It contains a thriving art scene, with the Nelson-Atkins Museum containing several Van Gogh’s and some giant shuttlecocks out front. Not only that, but the city itself is also a work of art. Made up of 20th century Art Deco Architecture, you’ll spend just as much as your time looking up, as you will forward. Make sure to check out the Power and Light building, as well as the Courthouse in particular.
Travel to Kansas City for any digital nomad is recommended between April and October, outside of this it tends to get a little cold. The American Royal makes the end of this period particularly attractive, blending rodeos, horse riding competitions, and BBQ. Though if Rodeo’s aren’t your thing, why not take a trip back in time to discover how greeting cards began their life at the Hallmark Visitors Centre. As with most US cities, a car is the easiest mode of transport for getting around. This coliving experience will be much easier on the pocket. So there’s that.
