Me and my fiance' are planning on moving to the KCMO area once we finish college, and I just want to say that that your blog is awesome, and while I do not know you, I get the impression that you are awesome too! I hope that many of the citizens of KCMO are as nice as you are.

Interesting, I almost went to school at the University of Maine at Farmington, I do know that area fairly well, and am originally from the Kansas City metro area. Is there a particular reason why you are targeting the KC region and have you visited before? I would say that if you're used to Maine weather you might also look at other places in addition to KC in the Upper Midwest, including Des Moines, the Twin Cities, Madison, etc. KC offers a decent quality of life for younger professionals, but is not a fast growing place in terms of economic growth presently. I assume you have completely discounted Portland, Maine metro area as well? That is where most of the job growth is in Maine presently.

Thanks. People don't always like me because I talk about the good and the bad when it comes to KC, but only because I want the bad to become good! Despite its shortcomings, KC has a lot of things to do and would be a nice change from Maine if you are tired of that. I like Maine, but could never live there.

I violated the original poster's directive- I visited this thread after I moved here. I moved here a year ago admittedly not knowing much about KC- but so far it's been great. Pleasant weather with four seasons- I don't mind very hot summers, I'm OK with 90-plus degrees. Easy traffic- some people think I'm crazy but seriously- Kansas City is an EASY city to drive through compared to some of the other places I've been. Great restaurants and museums, and friendly people. Kansas Citians are right up there with Minnesotans as the most friendly people I've been around.

I used to live in Orlando and Nashville- nice places that I enjoyed and wouldn't mind living in again. I lived in L.A.- it was all right but I'm not into the whole glamorous Hollywood scene. I also lived in Seattle- I could tell you what a miserable city Seattle is but that's for another time and place. I've been in KC for about a year and so far so good. I couldn't be happier.

KC a great town! Lived a couple of yrs (g/f & I) there back in mid 90s & miss it since. Long story but it is a fantastic place. I know many bash midwest but KC has it all & is a hidden gem to me in USA.
