Missouri Has It All

Mar 22, 2008
Missouri is a state of diversity. From two major, bustling metropolises in the east and the west - St. Louis and Kansas City - to farming communities dotting the state from top to bottom to one of the most popular tourist destinations in the country - Lake of the Ozarks and Branson - Missouri really does seem to have it all. Indeed, Missouri seems more than capable of living up to its motto of being The Show Me State - anyone spending a moment in Missouri will see that the state truly does offer residents and visitors alike a broad palate when it comes to business, recreation, entertainment, culture and other aspects of life.

On the west side of the state lies Kansas City, perhaps one of the most underrated cities in North America on some level. Kansas City is the true birthplace of jazz and blues music with some of the greatest performers in these genres getting their start in swanky clubs near Broadway and Vine in the city's center. Beyond the performing arts, Kansas City is also renowned for its cuisine, particularly famous K.C. barbecue.

Beyond food and the arts, shopping reigns in Kansas City (which is known as the city of fountains ... Kansas City has more fountains than any other city in the United States and second only to Rome internationally). The iconic Country Club Plaza, with its Spanish Style architecture, was the first open air shopping center in the country, being developed in the 1920s. The Country Club Plaza is home today to fine shops and stores and marvelous restaurants that draw crowds the entire year around.

Commercially, Kansas City is a major hub not only for Missouri but for the Midwestern United States as well. A number of major corporations are headquartered in K.C., including Hallmark Cards and H & R Block.

At the other end of the state, St. Louis is bustling. The largest city in the state, the St. Louis Waterfront District (located literally in the shadows of the famous Arch) has become a dining, retail and entertainment destination beyond compare.

St. Louis is also a prime Midwestern cultural center at which a person can take advantage of the performing arts of all types ... live theater, opera, the symphony and other types of performances. In addition, the city has become known for its museums and galleries, including venues that feature fine examples of American and other artistic genres.

Missourians are a robust people committed to health and wellness. Healthy daily living has become something of a quest for many residents of the state. As a consequence, many residents of the state find themselves intently concerned about making certain that they both look and feel great.

Towards this end, a growing number of Missourians can be found taking advantage of the latest technologies to deal with vascular related conditions such as varicose veins. This includes the use of both laser and light treatments including Sciton, Lumenis, Palomar, Cool Touch and VNUS. Thanks to treatments such as Sciton, Lumenis, Palomar, Cool Touch and VNUS, an individual that desires to resolve a varicose vein condition does not have to be subjected to invasive surgery.

By using a procedure like Sciton, Lumenis, Palomar, Cool Touch or VNUS, an individual doesn't even really need to adjust his or her schedule to undergo one or another of these procedures. In short, there really is no "down time" associated with Sciton, Lumenis, Palomar, Cool Touch or VNUS when it comes to the resolution of a varicose vein condition.
