Known for its thriving arts scene, mouthwatering barbeque, and eclectic neighborhoods, Kansas City is a uniquely colorful getaway destination with something for everyone. If you're a sports buff, catch a ball game at Kauffman Park, one of the oldest ballparks in the country; see a game at Hy-Vee Arena; and visit the iconic Arrowhead Stadium to find out if it's indeed the loudest in the country.
If sports aren't really your thing, there's still plenty of ground to cover. Check out the World of Fun amusement park, which is exactly as the name suggests. With water slides, roller coasters, and fun attractions across 235 acres, it's an unforgettable good time for children and adults alike. Fancy a stroll? Take a walk through Loose Park's idyllic picnic areas and visit the rose garden. Enjoy a mesmerizing and interactive introduction to sea creatures that inhabit our oceans at SEA LIFE Kanas City Aquarium. See how odd art can be with a visit to Leila's Hair Museum, with the largest collection of jewelry and wreaths made from hair.
No visit to Kanas City would be complete without food. Home to Kansas City-style barbeque and a booming craft distillery scene, Kansas City is a foodie's paradise. Taste your way through the neighborhoods, and stop for a game or two at a beercade. Let your nose guide you to local restaurants and BBQ joints for authentic Kansas City ‘cue, made famous by a unique cocktail of spices, a perfected slow-smoking technique, and a glaze of signature tomato-based barbeque sauce. Don't forget the burnt ends!
