City overview

Years later, it became home to the 33rd U.S. President Harry S. Truman, who was born just a stone’s throw away in Independence, Mo. Pick up a postcard in St. Joseph on your way to the historic Pony Express before heading to Liberty, Mo., where the Jesse James Bank Museum stands at the scene of the country’s first daylight bank robbery.

If you want a little more soul to your history lesson, brush up on your jazz music during the flight to Kansas City. This Midwest-city located in the middle of plains and farmland saw the likes of Charlie Parker and Duke Ellington, who stopped in to play at the nightclubs. Before you head out for a jam session, grab yourself some good old fashioned barbeque at one of the 60 restaurants in the Kansas City area that offer the backyard speciality such as a plate of baby back ribs smothered with the city’s famous barbeque sauce.
