The Kansas City, MO skyline becomes a stunning display of lights when the sun falls below the horizon.

Perhaps the best example of this is downtown Marriott which is visible middle left. The entire south side of the building is covered with lights that put on a show throughout the night.

Just to the left of the Marriott is the newly completed Kauffman Center for Performing Arts, an architectural gem.

And of course, you can't mention Kansas City without showcasing Union Station which is front and center in this image.

Kansas City and the surrounding area is beautiful, and the re-imagination of downtown over the past decade has made me proud to call the city home.
