Besides the stand-out sights, top class museums and thrilling amusement and water parks, Kansas City is full of pretty neighborhoods and areas of effortless charm that will keep you easily hooked and enjoying the vibe of the city for at least a week.
These are the best things to do in Kansas City:
1. Visit the National World War 1 Museum
The National World War 1 Museum is renowned throughout the country for being one of the best of its kind. The museum is housed in a rather modern building with a glass walkway over a field of red poppies: a powerful reminder of the combat in the trenches in the First World War. Many Americans overlook the First World War but this museum, with its vast informative displays and cabinets full of weapons and uniforms, certainly does not. Visit the museum’s Liberty Memorial for some of the best panoramic views of Kansas City.
