Kansas City Apartments For Rent

An expansive city that covers parts of four counties, Kansas City is the largest city in the state. It is one of two county seats for Jackson County, and its downtown is reminiscent of New York City. This dynamic location has several claims to fame, from its barbecue to its amazing collection of fountains.

Although the city wasn’t incorporated until 1853, its history started long before. French explorers arrived in the area in the early 1700s and set up fur trading posts. Lewis and Clark explored the area after the Louisiana Purchase, but it wasn’t until 1833 that any true settlement developed. Today, Kansas City is a busy, densely-populated urban center with over 240 neighborhoods, a wide variety of businesses, casinos, and pro sports teams.

As home of the Kansas City Chiefs football team and the Kansas City Royals baseball team, sports enthusiasts will love their new Kansas City apartment. The University of Missouri-Kansas City is part of the NCAA Division I and offers basketball, soccer, tennis, golf, and other sporting events.

Residents of Kansas City gather at City Market, one of the largest farmer’s markets in the Midwest. City Market opened in 1857 and features restaurants and cafes in addition to fresh produce, meats and seafood, and specialty items. With several museums, performing arts venues, and theaters, Kansas City residents have a wide variety of activities and nightlife. The park system is also extensive, with over 214 city parks.
