OsarksF6 definately has the right idea. If you have to come direct from St. Louis to KCK, you want to stay off I-70 as much as possible.
Other routes are I-44 west from St. Louis to Highway 50, and Highway 50 all the way in to the KC metro area. 50 is a nice, clean, smooth road the whole way which is quite the opposite of I-70.
However, if you can find reliable roads north of I-70 to use, I can tell you from experience that the state highways west of Marshall and Lexington, MO, are beautiful rides, as well. Specifically 65 west of Marshall to Lexington, then cross the river and catch 210 west in to the KC area. Nice civil war battleground to stop and walk around at in Lexington.
As someone else mentioned, Hermann is a neat town to check out if you are south of I-70.
No matter what, if you haven't caught my drift, stay off of I-70 between KC and St. Louis. Miserable.
