There are eight major divisions to the state. The North West, North East, Kansas City, Central, St. Louis, South West, Ozarks, and South East. Every region has something to offer to you if you can take the time to really study an area. In the North West region, some of the cities better known are, St. Joseph, Kansas City, Lee’s Summit. Up and coming are Raymore and Grain Valley.
