How to Spend 3 Days in Kansas City

How to Spend 3 Days in Kansas City

A full Kansas City experience can be had in three days if you plan an itinerary that incorporates the city’s rich history, cultural sights and activities, family-friendly attractions, and renowned cuisine. Here are some ideas for how to spend 72 memorable hours in Missouri’s largest city.

Day 1: Top Attractions and Epicurean Delights

Get oriented with KC on a city sightseeing or hop-on hop-off bus tour that provides transportation to top destinations—such as Country Club Plaza, River Market, Westport, and the downtown Power and Light District—without having to worry about directions and parking. As you pass by museums and other attractions, such as the SEA LIFE aquarium and LEGOLAND Discovery Center at Crown Center, decide what you’ll visit later on your own. Art enthusiasts should swing by the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art and the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, while history buffs won’t want to miss the National WWI Museum and Memorial or the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum and the American Jazz Museum, located in the 18th and Vine district. When evening rolls around, relish KC’s barbecue and beer scene on a tour of local BBQ joints or a brewery and distillery tour. Alternatively, visit Boulevard Brewing Company for beer tastings.

 

Day 2: Family-Friendly Activities

Enjoy quality time with family or friends while exploring KC sights on a city scavenger hunt. These self-guided adventures take you on a walk through a central part of town as you collaborate to find clues and solve puzzles. It’s a great way to keep your group engaged and entertained. Then continue the fun with a Segway tour around a popular area like Country Club Plaza or Westport, one of the city’s oldest neighborhoods, while listening to stories and history about KC from a guide. End the day at a Kansas City escape game, where you’ll work in teams to get out of a locked room before time runs out. These typically 1-hour themed challenges are great for all kinds of groups, from families to colleagues to bachelorette parties. Alternatively, spend the evening in the Power and Light District, home to restaurants, bars, and live music.

 

Day 3: Sports Fans and Shopaholics Rejoice

Sports lovers have three major league teams to choose from, depending on the season. The Kansas City Chiefs play professional football at Arrowhead Stadium; the Kansas City Royals baseball team packs in the fans at Kauffman Stadium; and Sporting Kansas City plays soccer at Children’s Mercy Park. College basketball games draw large crowds, too. If your preferred sport is shopping, you’ve got plenty of options, starting with the city’s premier upscale shopping venue, Country Club Plaza. Other popular spots include Westport, home to hip and independent stores; River Market for antiques, housewares, and food; Crown Center for a curated selection of locally owned clothing and lifestyle shops; and the Crossroads district for art galleries.
