For Immediate Release: May 14, 2010

Contact: Derek Klaus

Kansas City's vibrant arts scene, revitalized downtown and "easy-does-it Midwestern charm" take center stage for a new travel article in The New York Times. Showcasing the City of Fountains inside its regular travel feature "36 Hours," the newspaper shares its recommendations on how to spend a quick weekend getaway in Kansas City.

Among the cultural amenities featured-the Kauffman Center for Performing Arts, the Crossroads Arts District and a downtown renaissance that has transformed KC "back into a culturally rich metropolis." The city's fountains, live music scene and trademark barbecue were also mentioned.

The KCCVA assisted the author, Charly Wilder, with the story. The article is online now and is expected to appear in this Sunday's Travel section. The New York Times is read by more than 1 million people everyday.
