Shifting between the zeal of an arts-rich community and the comfort of a slow-cooked culinary scene, Kansas City draws its whimsical feel from the improv-heavy style of bebop jazz in the 1940s. See why Forbes considers it one of America's Best Downtowns with this week's Escape to satellite city Odessa, Missouri—just 30 minutes away from the Paris of the Plains.

Follow the leisurely beat toward a two-night stay for two at SunSet Acres Bed & Breakfast ($175). Nestled on 12 acres of rolling hills, this home-away-from-home offers views of picturesque ponds and manicured grounds where Canadian geese and blue herons flock. An included bottle of sparkling cider and decadent chocolate-covered strawberries strike just the right chord.

After you're settled, you'll want to lace up your shoes and toe-tap into Kansas City where you and your taste buds will jive with the area's famous barbecue.

"Everywhere you look in Kansas City, there's another fountain dancing in front of you," says Forbes. "They were one of the first cities in the US to add a pedestrian mall back in the fifties, plus you've got great barbecue there, and you can spend all day going from barbecue to barbecue joint—it's that delicious."

After catching a show at the newly opened Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts, an architectural and artistic icon, head to Jack Stack Barbecue for a pre-dinner snack from the restaurant's Freight House eatery, where you'll nosh on award-winning barbecue underneath 25-foot ceilings and a fireplace lounge.

With a lingering taste of 'cue and a freshly saturated style sense, return to the B&B, where you can treat yourself to a delicious dinner at FireSide Dining. The restaurant serves homemade dishes like tequila-lime chicken and pan-fried tilapia in the alfresco dining area overlooking lush country fields.

Later, relax in the hot tub, or—with advanced notice and for an additional fee—order up a rejuvinating couples' massage, a bouquet of flowers, or a fully packed picnic basket for a romantic excursion for two.

Don't settle for a one-note getaway—give into country croons and city sensibilities with this dynamic Escape.
