What is the airport closest to Kansas City Kansas?
Kansas City exists in both Missouri and Kansas.
Kansas City straddles the Kansas & Missouri state border (defined by the Missouri river) hence there is Kansas City, KS and Kansas City, MO.
Galveston Island, Texas is 13 hours south of KC. That's the closest ocean beach with places to stay.
Both Kansas and Kansas City are named for Kansas River, which is in turn named for the local Kanza Indian tribe. The city was established before Kansas itself was even made a …territory.
My guess for the closest beach that you can actually enjoy would be Galveston, Texas. Not the best beach comparatively, but the closest.
Joe Reardon is the current mayor of Kansas City, KS.
There are cities with the same name in both Missouri and Kansas, and are just across the Missouri River from each other. Kansas City's metropolitan area has the distinction of… being one of only three American cities (the others are St. Louis and New York) that have area in two states. However, the Kansas city is governed as part of Wyandotte County, Kansas, not as part of the larger city. The Missouri state border is along the meandering Missouri River that flows through Kansas City, and the river separates the less-populated Kansas side from the Missouri side.
The borders of both cities touch
Not as big as Kansas City, MO. But the population is of KCK is 146866. Kansas City, MO is 475830.

Kansas City is in both states indeed (I live in Kansas). The majority and most of the attractions of Kansas city are on the Missouri side including the home of the nfl's chief…s, and mlb's royals. also home to the downtrown kansas city area. the kansas side is the smaller city with less attractions but still some including the home of the mls's wizards and a greatwolf lodge, schlitterbahn waterpark resort and the kansas speedway. KCK population=142,500 KCMO population=480,000. That should say it all right there. They kansas side is no more than a suburb of the kansas city MISSOURI metro. I live here on the kansas side.
The Kansas river runs through Kansas City, Kansas. At river level the altitude is approximately 800 ft above sea level.
Kansas City is in Kansas and Missouri because Kansas City is a rather large city; it is in Kansas but it crosses over the border and the larger part sits in Missouri, so it is… considered a city in both Kansas and Missouri.
