25. KANSAS CITY, MO

(Alert! Start with Day 1 of our “30 Days x 30 Cities” blog series to follow this trip from the start)


We only spent one night in Kansas City.

Fortunately for us, it was long enough to enjoy dinner at The Westside Local and then stumble upon shops like Swoon... and wish The Calico Beard was still open... and consider a second dinner at FUD.

We only spent one night in Kansas City but it was long enough to be transformed by an amazing little soda shop and café called Little Freshie and one of the best online reviews ever.

As a business owner, it's the kind of review I could only dream of ever receiving.

Attempting to console myself by thinking that it could've been left by a close pal, I still can't even dream of having the kind of friend that could peer into my soul and then make the time to write a review like that...

We only spent one night in Kansas City but it was long enough to make me ache for that kind of connection.

If you can't understand the pure magic of this kind of loyalty, come here and I will fight you.

I will also be the one munching on a macaron.
