KANSAS CITY, MO. – The KC Visitors’ Choice Awards commemorated its 10th anniversary with more than 200 people at a reception Tuesday evening. Visit KC announced winners in 28 categories during the event at Boulevard Brewing Co., including the top jazz venue and favorite landmark.
Over the course of the summer voting campaign, thousands of visitors weighed in at VisitKC.com, selecting their top picks for the best experiences of the region, including hotels, attractions, sports, dining, shopping and more. The Visitors’ Choice Awards is the only awards program chosen exclusively by Kansas City’s visitors, as only votes from outside the five-county metropolitan area were tallied.
“Kansas City visitors are essential to the growth and vitality of our city,” said Visit KC President & CEO Ronnie Burt. “The Visitors’ Choice Awards has been the voice of our guests for 10 years now, and we’re looking forward to another decade of honoring the finest experiences Kansas City has to offer.”
For the second year in a row, the Kansas City Royals were honored with the overall best award, Best of Kansas City, as well as Favorite Pro Sports Team. A comprehensive list of this year’s winners follows:
