When it comes to world records, Missouri would appear to be more fun to live in than Kansas.
The blog for Estately, a national real estate search site, reviewed hundreds of Guinness World Records and mapped them to states in which the records were set.
The blog found seven world records for Missouri — Longest Pub Crawl, Largest Can Pyramid, Longest Snake in Captivity, Smallest Living Horse, Largest Game of “Duck, Duck, Goose,” Longest Scarf Knitted While Running a Marathon and Most Dogs in Costumed Attire.
Four of those records were set in Kansas City, and the list doesn’t even include the recent record of Loudest Crowd Roar at a Sports Stadium set in September at Arrowhead Stadium.
Never miss a local story.
Estately compiled the list and mapped it as an ongoing series of tiebreakers to help potential homebuyers decide where to live.
