The arts scene is expanding at an incredibly rapid pace. Lots of great museums, theater events, and festivals that are all quite accessible for those that look for it. The foodie scene is quite similar. A lot of great restaurants, and being surrounded by so much farmland allows for some fantatic farm-to-table opportunities. The cost of living there is great. I know that it allows to live a lot larger than I possibly could in a bigger city, and also allows me the opportunity to travel, People are generally friendly.

The food scene in Kansas is amazing. Kansas City is considered by many to be the undisputed king of barbecue cities in the world and they have more than 100 barbecue joints, so the adventure of trying something new is something we will never tire of. They also have an excellent combination of farm and table concepts and chefs acclaimed nationally and it was what I liked most about this city.
