I'm going to be in KC for the Folk Alliance Conference the third week of Feb.
I'll be staying near the Crown Center. I'd like to be able to go to some of the recommended restaurants while I'm there. Is a car necessary? Or is it best to just find public transport to downtown from the airport (I arrive at night) and then use cabs to get around KC?
Sometimes a car turns out to be less expensive and provide flexibility while in other places it is just a hassle to park it and fight traffic in it. Where does KC fit in?
