Carly Darrah

 Carly Darrah is a born-and-raised Kansas Citian who loves all the surprising and exciting ways her city rocks. She has dwelled in suburbia, downtown and in residential city neighborhoods and has a great feel for all parts of the Metro area. She wants everyone to know and love the Huffington Post's "top American city to keep on your radar" as much as she does.


Carly has been published in area newspapers, academic journals and does some grant writing work for local non-profits. She's active on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and hopes to grow her Yelp! library of reviews as much as she can while she documents her Kansas City adventures for About Travel.


  Carly attended the University of Missouri - Columbia to study journalism and holds a degree in Communication Studies from the University of Missouri - Kansas City.
