It may come as no surprise that Travis Kelce was one of the most-searched people on Google this year, but what about the fact that Kansas City ranked No. 1 in the US in top trending searches for “dispensary near me”?

2023’s Google Year in Search is out, and its local search function provides an interesting peek into our city’s queries. Take a look at what we were searching most this year (plus, our answers to your searches — we may not be Google, but we know a thing or two about where to find the best barbershops).

Unique local searches

  • Top trending “tour” search | Taylor Swift’s “The Eras Tour”
  • Top trending TV show | “The Last of Us” on Max

The fact that “KCtoday” wasn’t a top local search only hurts our feelings a little bit. There’s always next year.
