I grew up in Kansas City, but moved to California in 1995. I return often to visit friends and family, but seldom did much of the 'touristy' things in and around town. One worth seeing is the World War 1 Memorial and Museum, the only one of its kind in the country. The memorial sits atop a hill with a sweeping view of the newly restored Union Station and the downtown skyline behind. Its a great museum, and a great spot. I took this photo in the summer of 2008 while visiting for the Fourth of the July weekend.
