Life is good in Independence.

Independence is a vibrant suburb of the greater Kansas City metropolitan area and the state’s fourth largest city. The birthplace of the 33rd President of the United States, Harry S. Truman, and home to one of the country’s most celebrated presidential libraries, the city of almost 120,000 is a place where neighbors greet one another by name, there are still plenty of white picket fences and people get involved in a community that is a source of great pride.

Known as the biggest little town in Missouri, Independence, located in Jackson County, offers residents amenities such as a world-class events center, a historic square with five-star dining and cozy accommodations, the Missouri Mavericks hockey team and an annual festival that celebrates the city as the starting point of the United States’ great westward expansion.

And of course, Independence isn’t far from neighboring Kansas City and its suburbs—another world to explore.  For more information on Independence, go to visitindependence.com.
