When WestJet flies to this destination:
Kansas City is a vibrant and innovative city that boasts an eclectic and emerging arts scene, world-class attractions and an extensive mix of local shops. The "City of Fountains" is home to a thriving art and design scene, and it attracts a diverse array of independent businesses and restaurants alike.
Experiencing the city's dynamic arts and cultural offerings should be at the top of any visitor's list when in Kansas City. Be sure to check the performance schedule at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts, an exquisite venue for music, opera, theater and dance throughout the year. Another must-see for visitors is the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, boasting an expansive collection of over 33,000 works of art.
Spend the day strolling around the historic City Market, where visitors will find an unbeatable combination of dining, shopping, entertainment and attractions in a unique open-air setting. The City Market offers visitors a variety of fresh produce, meat, specialty groceries, flowers and gift items from nearby farms and around the world. Find the perfect souvenir at River Market Antiques. This 30,000 square foot indoor antique mall is home to more than 100 vendors. You could spend days exploring all of the nooks and crannies in the many storeys of this building, and there would still be plenty to see.
No trip to Kanas City is complete without a healthy dose of local fare. And this city's famous specialty is barbeque, which makes it easily one of the most delectable activities in Kansas City. Barbeque means business here (just ask the members of the Kansas City Barbecue Society), and there are nearly 100 barbecue restaurants. Slow-smoking is the traditional Kansas City barbecue calling card, but you'll find a variety of cooking styles so you can choose your own new favourite. But it's not just barbeque that the folks from Kansas City can boast about. The Rieger, located in a beautiful historic building that was once a hotel, describes itself as "a Kansas City Classic brought forward in time." The original tile floor and fixtures give it an old-world charm and they claim that their food celebrates the bounty of the region.
From touring famous factories like Harley-Davidson and Hallmark Cards to experiencing the city's arts, there is no shortage of activities in Kansas City, all sure to entertain everyone in the family.
