      Good things for kids in KC?

      by dlandt Online Now Dec 13, 2014 at 6:38 AM

      I'm considering taking my nine year old daughter to KC along with another friend who has a daughter the same age. I've browsed some web articles about children's activities in KC and haven't found them all that enlightening so I thought I would ask the VT community where we can take two little girls. We plan to be there between Christmas and New Year's and spend 2-3 days in the city.

      And thanks to all the VTers who have put out their favorite BBQ joints! o need to ask about that one again!

      Hello,

      Is it better to stay in downtown Kansas City, MO, in the plaza area, or in the power and lights district? Please let me know, I'm planning a long weekend trip mid July. Thanks!

    • Safe hotel choices?

      by heidirach Online Now Apr 25, 2014 at 11:56 AM

      My boyfriend & I are going to an event at the Sprint Center. He booked a room at the Holiday Inn Express on Macon St in North Kansas City. Is this a safe area, or should we cancel and book somewhere else? Also, how safe is the area around the Sprint Center at night, and by that I mean 9:30/10 after the show? I'm not against driving downtown or staying downtown if that would be a better option. We will only be in KC for 1 night and then have to head up to Excelsior Springs for a wedding.

    • A Weekend To Kill .......

      by andymacra Online Now Jun 2, 2013 at 1:12 PM

      We have a weekend (21 - 23 June) free in Kansas and are at a relative loss as to what we should do. We would ideally like somewhere to wind down with not too many people and the opportunity to see something of the country. Price isn't a particular limiting factor, we just want to get away from it all.

      We would be grateful for your advice and hints.

      With thanks in advance.

      Hello everyone, as some of you might have read my previous post, I am a first time traveler to the USA, flying next week from Pakistan and will be based in Kansas. I just had a great idea, how about we plan a VT Meet up in Kansas? That would be a good opportunity to meet new people, share experiences and make friends. I would love to come to a meet up like that, what does everyone else think?

      Getting around in Kansas, help..!!

      by Sanaaa Online Now Sep 1, 2012 at 6:44 AM

      Hello everyone, I am traveling to Kansas next week from Pakistan to visit my aunt and I plan to see many places in America like New York, Vegas, Florida, San Francisco, Niagra Falls, Grand Canyon etc. My biggest concern is that all these states are very far from each other, Kansas is in the centre with California on one corner of the map and New York etc on the other. Can anyone guide me about what would be the cheapest form of traveling there? Secondly my aunt lives on Travis Lane in Kansas, is that a fun place? Does it have any shopping malls or something interesting nearby? As this is my first trip to the States, I want to make the most of it and have great experiences so any advice/guidance you guys can give me would be valuable. Thanks :)

      Football Weekend in KC

      by NaughtyArty Online Now Jan 11, 2011 at 1:35 PM

      The wife & I are going to see the Chiefs-Dolphins game next fall with a group of other Dolphins fans. (The NFL won't release the schedule until April, so we could be going anytime from September to December.)

      Someone else is coordinating the tickets & hotels for the group, so I want to know about restaurants & brewpubs.

      We're going to be arriving (driving in from St. Louis) early Saturday afternoon, and I'd like to know of a nice steakhouse and/or BBQ place to hit for dinner that night. I'm also looking for a brewpub to hit either before or after the game on Sunday.

    • View Plaza Holiday Lights

      by cynthia43 Online Now Nov 9, 2010 at 2:41 PM

      We will be in KC at Christmas for the first time in 25 years and look forward to seeing the Plaza lights again (I use to live about 10 blocks from the Plaza). My favorite place to view the lights was at the top of the Seville hotel (that really dates me, since I think it's changed hands several times and is now the InterContinental). I don't think there's a top floor bar/restaurant there any more. Can someone suggest a restaurant or bar that's high up that will provide a great view of the lights? We plan to have dinner at the Raphael Christmas eve, but that's on the ground floor. Thanks for any and all suggestions!

      Do most teams stay at the Intercontinental? I know we are staying there with Toronto this weekend (stepson plays) but we lost our media guide and I'm impatient in waiting for another. I will be back thru there third week of June with some friends and wondered if San Francisco will be staying there also. Guess I could find out this weekend and book then but as I said...I'm impatient...and want to go ahead and book...
