      I have camped there before in 1980, but no longer being the young buck I never was, we would like to stay in a more convenient location.
      Alas, the logistics of packing all of our camping stuff is already leading to WW3 as we shall be driving there from San Francisco, before going back to Napa Valley.

      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.

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?

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?
