Liberty is a city located in Clay County, Missouri and is also considered a suburb of Kansas City, Missouri. Its close proximity to KCMO means that the residents of Liberty can enjoy a local home-town feel, while also having access to the cultural and recreational advantages of a big city. The city of Liberty has the honor of being recognized in August 2011 as the 7th Best Place to Live in America by CNN/Money Magazine.

Connection to transportation outlets makes Liberty an excellent choice for businesses, shopping, and recreation.

    Have you checked out the new breakfast/brunch restaurant in Liberty Commons? If you haven't then may I suggest you go give the Homegrown restaurant in Liberty a try? My family tried it last week and we loved it. Their staff is very helpful and their menu is very unique with lots of variety. I had a meat lover's omelet and my wife had the french toast plus we took home a coffee cake. Everything was fantastic plus they have mimosas and other breakfast drinks. Overall it was a great dining experience.

    I was talking to an agent just the other day about how my family and I came to Liberty when it was very young in its development. Starting at McDonald's near Sutherlands! I remember that the parking lot was a huge hangout for the teens, being slammed every Friday and Saturday! Many things have changed since then. That Mcdonald's is getting a new look! The old Walmart building is becoming a Sutherlands! Liberty has just exploded. I am so excited all the time waiting to see what new business or subdivision pops up! The city is amazing! If you have not been there in a while it is worth the trip to check it out!

    Whether you have kids or not, Red Robin is a great place to go. It has a vibrant environment and the staff are always friendly and fast. From the Whiskey River Burger to Clucks and Fries, the menu has something for the whole family. You can also get an adult beverage if you so choose or top off a great meal with a big milkshake. I personally enjoy the bottomless fries dipped in ranch or Red Robin's own campfire sauce. Do yourself a favor and check out Red Robin soon.
