Furthermore, this tour includes several of Kansas City's most renowned barbeque locations, giving visitors the opportunity to experience an authentic taste of the Kansas City barbeque tradition that originated in this area. As with the walking tour, this tour begins and concludes at the Black Archives of Mid-America, which includes several exhibits related to the history and accomplishments of people who lived and worked in this neighborhood.
