With a population of 2.34 million inhabitants, the Kansas City area spreads across 15 counties in two states, Kansas and Missouri. While the greater St. Louis metropolitan area outranks us to be the largest populated area of Missouri, population statistics and projections predict that the Kansas City is growing so steadily that our area will become the most inhabited metropolitan part of the state. Although Kansas City covers a lot of territory, Fluesbrothers Chimney Service has been sweeping and repairing the chimneys of homes over most of the area, covering a lot of ground. Serving a large area for 14 years, we have made lots of friends in Kansas City, and we love being the best, trustworthy fireplace destination. We would like to thank our loyal customers by highlighting a few of the cities we serve to inform you of the best things to do in this area.
Recently named by one of the most trusted travel guides, Frommer’s, as one of the top ten destinations in the world (yes, the world! And, we are the only city in the US that made the 2012 list!), the new Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts is one of the main reasons our largest city was selected. Hailed as an architectural icon and as one of the most technically advanced performing arts center in the country, the Kauffman Center houses the Kansas City Symphony, the Kansas City Ballet, and the Lyric Opera of Kansas City. If you are more into sports, you can go see the Kansas City Chiefs play NFL football, the Kansas City Royals play MBA baseball, and the Sporting Kansas City play professional men’s soccer, along with other pro sports teams, including a women’s American football team. Of course, as we are known for our barbecue, Frommer’s listed Arthur Bryant’s as their pick for best barbecue joint in the area. For shopping, dining, and live music, the Power and Light District offers the best entertainment in the downtown area, focusing on local businesses, including restaurants, and boutiques.
One of the largest suburbs in the Kansas City area, Overland Park features many attractions and fun things to do. Art lovers must visit the Nerman Contemporary Art Museum, the largest of its kind in the four-state area and the only one in Kansas. Housing the largest shopping mall in the region, Oak Park Mall is a shopper’s dream, with Nordstrom, American Girl, LEGO, and 185 other stores and specialty shops located inside the mall. A popular destination for nature lovers, the Overland Park Arboretum and Botanical Gardens includes a Monet garden, waterfalls, walking trails, and a children’s discovery garden.
Since we appreciate fine masonry work, one of Fluesbrothers Chimney Service’s favorite thing about Independence, another large suburb of Kansas City, is its abundance of historical homes. The most famous resident of Independence, President Harry S. Truman, lived here after his presidency in a simple home that is now open to the public as a museum. One of our most treasured historical homes, the Valle Mansion, an ornate 30-room former home, is one of the best examples of Second-Empire Victorian architecture in the entire country. Other top attractions in Independence include the Independence Events Center, the Adventure Oasis Water Park, and many pioneer trails museums and sites.
