Top 10 Reasons NOT to Move to Kansas City, Missouri

The Top 10 reasons You Should NOT move to Kansas City, Missouri and the worst things you NEED to know about moving to Wichita, Kansas instead.

Worst places to live in Oklahoma City –

What’s it like living in Kansas City? Well first off, there’s a KC Kansas as well and it’s hot and humid in the Summer, just like most of the mid-west. It’s actually the largest city in Missouri, although the St Louis metropolitan area is actually slightly bigger. It’s also, along with Omaha, Wichita, and other great plains suburbs, one of the cheapest and best cities to live in America. While it isn’t the fastest growing city, a lot of people are moving to KCMO, and there is a cheap cost of living, so why shouldn’t you live in Kansas City, MO.

Thanks for watching From Here to There! This is one of my top ten videos where we explain things about the world, it’s history, and geography, starting with the different states, cities, and towns in the United States. Find out the worst and best places to live in 2019!

    Los Angeles is also very spread out and the traffic is horrendous–all the time. The homeless problem in LA is off the charts and the crime is bad. Housing? Can’t touch a 1500 SF 3/2 in a decent area for less than $800,000. Oh by the way, California’s tax burden is the highest in the nation. Naw, we’ll keep KC, thank you, 10 reason for not living here and all.

    KCI airport is in a MAJOR upgrade.. They have leveled one of the terminals to put in a new modern state of the art terminal that will replace the original trio of terminals we had.. The old airport was LOVED before you had all the TSA security testing as it was just steps from were you boarded or exited the airport.. With the new security the old design does not lead itself to a security situation.. SO a new airport is there.. The original airport was downtown.. BUT it was on a bend of the river, no place to put in additional runways and a river at one end of the existing one and across the river at the other were cliffs.. large planes had trouble landing and taking off.. TWA had an overhaul base and runways were KCI is today.. As there was already an airport there and room to expand and NO people living next to it to give lawsuits about planes flying over their heads, that is why KCI is were it is… The only BAD thing is not including light rail or monorail service from it to downtown. The situation on the airport WILL change when the new terminal is opend.

    There’s a lot to be said for all the lakes around KC vs. "the beach" when you really mean "the ocean." You can swim and boat in the lakes without all the salt. There’s no seagulls. I’d say no sharks, but I’m a diver and I love them. If you really must have sand, and I have no idea why, there are man made beaches around. I grew up in KC and live near Nashville now, so we go to Gulf Shores and Pensacola a lot. As much as I love the gulf coast, I can’t say I’ve ever had a better time there than at Table Rock Lake. Plus, southeast Kansas and south Missouri (THE FREAKING OZARKS – no you don’t have to go all the way to Ar-Kansas) have some great rivers for float trips. No – not whitewater, but how much booze and BBQ can you consume doing whitewater? Yeah – didn’t think so. Yeah, mountains are far in terms of miles, but not time. Ever drive I-70 through Kansas and Colorado? I’ve done KC to Denver in 7 hours.

  25. ryan o'hare on September 29, 2020 at 7:25 pm

    Yeah one hour of driving isnt worth spending your life alone with your dog and netflix what a libtard

  32. Kaylee Cox on September 29, 2020 at 7:32 pm

    I live in KC! A few notes after watching:
    01). There is a lot of crime for sure, like getting robbed at gunpoint in the middle of the afternoon on a busy street
    02).Things typically are spread out too far to walk, but it definitely doesn’t take an hour to drive across the city unless you take the little neighborhood roads. The city is surrounded by highways for a reason
    03). The roads are old, narrow, and torn up. You don’t know potholes until you’ve been here
    04). The video states that a 2bed apt. typically costs $850/mo, but that’s only for shithole apartments. Decent ones are easily at $1200 and higher, and all of them have mice
    05). The coffee scene here is amazing and has really boomed in the past 5 years
    06). The city is incredibly segregated and it’s really wild driving one street west of Troost and one street east of Troost. The difference is astounding
    07). As for the KS vs MO debate, no one really cares. The KS side is much more suburban and super wealthy, while the MO side is way poorer but has all of the fun things to do and see
    08). Joe’s KC BBQ is the best BBQ place, and it’s a gas station

  33. Dee Gee on September 29, 2020 at 7:32 pm

  38. Makienzie Smith on September 29, 2020 at 7:40 pm

    The only real crime in KC is down town if you want to know what time of day it mostly is at it is a mostly night cause that’s when a lot of drug dealers ,murders, and rapist and my friend use to live in down town and she said that’s mostly the times those things would happen and it was a bad part to

    What the fuck are you taking about with the airport?

    I have flown through a shit ton of different airports, both before and after 9/11.

    MCI is my absolute favorite airport to fly in and out of.

    Parking is a dream. Yes, its far from the terminals, but the buses show up every five minutes to take you to the terminal. And the cost for long term parking is very reasonable.

    Getting through security is SO fast compared to other airports. Living in KC for 10 years, I flew in an out of the airport ALOT. It has never taken me more than 15-20 minutes to clear security. Not once.

    But what I love most about MCI is that even with a disability that makes it very difficult for me to walk long distances, I can park, get to the nearest bus stop, rest my legs on the way to the terminal, check in, get to my gate, and board my flight without pushing my legs to the breaking point. Most airports I have to ask for assistance to get to my gate, but I don’t need assistance at MCI because the waking distance is MCI.

    Easy parking, short lines through secure, and easy walking distances make MCI an awesome airport.

  47. Red Crimson on September 29, 2020 at 7:48 pm

    i prefer st louis

  48. Rachel Curl on September 29, 2020 at 7:48 pm

    Everyone watching this from KC is getting all butt hurt over what is listed in here. I’m from KC and I’m like, good deter people from moving here. I’m tired of my rent going up because the population keeps growing and getting more concentrated. Whoever is watching this not from KC, don’t move here! I can’t afford rent anymore.
