There's room to move in Kansas City. By all accounts, we boast the lowest population density of any metropolitan area in the United States. Within the Kansas City metro area, each square mile holds only 324 people. If you think that's sparse, consider this: A square mile contains 27,878,400 square feet, and when you add up all the square feet in our fair burg, you get 150,730,145,280. Divide that among the 1,755,899 people living in the city proper, and you have a whopping 85,842 square feet for each person! That's plenty of room to swing a cat! Hell, you could swing a whole litter of cats! So goin' to Kansas City is a breeze, whether your aim is to settle down in an airy, liveable environment or to spend a day soaking up the big city sites without all the big city hassles. After all, it's hard to enjoy everything KC is famous for -- the fountains, the barbecue, the blues -- if you're elbow-to-elbow with your neighbor and bogged down in a traffic jam.
