Sitting on the western border of Missouri, Kansas City is famous for sharing half its metropolis with two states, making it a diverse land of people, music, and savory southern eats. Explore the down-home paradise by making sure you’re well-equipped to take it on, whether that means reserving a hotel close to Kansas City International or looking forward to the speed of downtown’s KC Streetcar, which offers over a dozen stops through the buzziest parts of town, from the Financial District’s Kansas City Convention Center to the Power and Light District’s Main Street restaurants and markets. Those looking to stay close to the fun should make sure they get around the massive 300+ square-miles of space with ease, either by booking a private sedan for intimate travels across quiet FM roads or a stretched limousine that makes drop-offs to special event extra worth it.
Make the day easy to look forward to, starting with the coolest downtown attractions, whether you’re a family looking for a bright morning at Kansas City Zoo or a couple in search of spring at Loose Park Rose Garden. Get in touch with the region’s history by visiting the National World War I Museum and Memorial, the country’s only facility dedicated to the modern world’s first global war, also renowned for housing the largest collection of WWI artifacts. Keep the history ball rolling by hopping aboard the Arabia Steamboat Museum, located along the Missouri River and filled with authentic 19th-century household items. End the afternoon with a lunch to remember, looking forward to BBQ eats on the north side of town, some of the most popular being the long-time ribs at Joe’s Kansas City Barbecue on 47th Street as well as the busy college vibes at Q39 Midtown.
