After hearing so many great things about the Boulevard from KC locals, I decided to find a hotel near this bustling avenue.

It only took me a couple of minutes to find a great hotel and book it, because HotelTonight makes it so easy to book great hotels at a moment's notice.

The Kansas-Missouri state line runs through the Boulevard, so you can easily straddle the state line and then head over to a brewery and grab a cold beer.
