No kidding! And who thinks they are giving good advice for relocation by giving a tourism link?

The OP wasn't looking for a vacation spot, he was looking to relocate to a place to live. I wonder where he finally wound up.

If you live in urban KC north of 27th street to the river....

You will hear police and fire sirens throughout the day.

Most days you will hear a police helicopter overhead and at night almost all the time.

Gun shots every day (obviously not on every street).

Dogs barking, everyone here has a dog.

Railroad trains running (and brakes screeching) all day and night if you are within 3 miles of tracks.

KC has more highways per-capita than any other city in the US and is a major trans hub.

You will hear a constant roar from I-70, I-35 and I-435 during rush hours if you are within 3-4 miles.

Default It's so much more than that

San Jose looks suburban because it was designed that way. A few high rises wouldn't change that. The densities of its neighborhoods, even close to downtown, are quite low. What's missing are the neighborhoods with 3-5 story buildings that surround downtown in most cities with a more urban feel.
