KC, on the Missouri side is nice near the convention area of town and there are a few nice restaurants downtown. Take a cab to the Casino, see a Royals or Chiefs game and definitely get some BBQ.

Kansas City is a city and punches above her weight in terms of her cultural offering, primarily due to a number of wealthy benefactors who have helped to ensure access to high quality museums and a number of sights that are of modest interest tourists. Visit The Plaza, check out Westport, the museums, eat BBQ and go to a football game. Not the kind of place you'd choose as a destination but just fine if you have to visit for work, family, or friends.

Kansas City is a great place. It has all the attraction of a major American city without all the difficulties of giant city. You'll find major league sport teams, fine dining, and elegant shopping opportunities. You'll also find the low key Midwestern charm in many areas of the city. Cost of living is low for a major city, but similar to many of its Midwestern neighbors.
Kansas City is divided between Missouri and Kansas. To me, the major differences between being in different areas of the city are the laws. For example, the Missouri liquor laws are much more lax than the Kansas laws. Kansas liquor laws are some of the strictest in the nation and can be compared easily to Oklahoma's strict laws.
I prefer the Missouri side personally. Downtown KC is located on the Missouri side. You'll find a wide variety of choices of entertainment, nightlife, restaurants, and attractions in this area.
Kansas City lacks a convenient public transportation system like a railway system, but have a well developed highway and interstate system. To travel from North KC/Liberty to South KC expect a 30-45 minute drive.

Get in and get out. There isn't much to do in KC. If you're there for a weekend to see a football game, NCAA Tourney or whatever that's long enough. I spent 9 months in KC and that was WAY TOO LONG! You can only eat so much BBQ/steak and see so many sporting events. There really isn't much to do. It is a large city for the area but has the small American city feel.

Stayed at a hotel near Country Club Plaza, it was great! We were able to walk everywhere and leave the car parked. The Plaza was very appealing-large chain stores, small business, food of every variety, lots of amazing mythological statues and fountains to see, music every where! Can't wait to go back and try different places next time!

One of the most beautifully lit cities I have seen at night. I have only been here at night passing through. Had some coffee at a place i don't remember but it seems rather quaint. The lights of the city leaving via Greyhound was gorgeous.
