Kansas City, Missouri, may be new to your must-go list, but its roots as a travelers’ outpost run deep. This historic metro started as a trading hub for French fur purveyors and covered wagons headed west. Now, it continues to attract visitors with its jazz music, artsy neighborhoods and legendary barbecue

We toured Instagram for the best places in Kansas City to take a photo. See below for your picture-perfect itinerary.
