Just went to Kansas City. It seemed that its sprawl almost connected with Lawrence's sprawl. Lawrence is about 40 miles from Kansas City and 27 miles to Topeka. Any chance the sprawl of Topeka will connect with the sprawl of KC?

Orlando north , north east and east is the most but all directions as well
the city itself is not that big but the region is huge and we do have a small skyline for the size of our area

Orlando's sprawl is interwoven with Tampa and Daytona Beach/Coastal sprawl. IT is hard to know when you are leaving the Orlando area and entering another region's sprawl.

The St Louis area sprawls far in certain directions. For example, there is continuous development north and south from Godfrey, IL to Pevely, MO, which is a distance of 58 miles. But the most sprawled direction is along the axis that runs northwest to southeast through St Louis. From the western developments of Wentzville, MO, to the eastern subdivisions of Belleville, IL, it is about 65 miles.
