Derek and I just recently returned from a vacation to Kansas City. We had an absolute blast the entire time!
I don’t think most people would think of Kansas City as a vacation, but they couldn’t be more wrong. Only a 10 hour drive away, it was just the right distance to get away for a bit.
Often known as the “City of Fountains” that aspect surely didn’t disappoint. Every few feet of walking it seems to provide a new different, unique fountain to look at. I’m sure we didn’t even begin to see the coolest of them.
One of my favorites was the Power & Light district in downtown. We often found ourselves walking around talking about how we don’t know why more cities don’t create something like this. If you ever get the chance, definitely go check it out!
Another great stop we made was the Kansas City Zoo. In my personal opinion, it was just the perfect size. Not too big, not too small. Besides, they have PENGUINS!!!!! Not to mention how neat it is of how CLOSE you really get to get to them! ❤
The famous Christopher S. Bond Bridge in Kansas City was also one of my favorite “landmarks”. So beautiful!
One of the places I think is probably most often over-looked is the Kauffman Memorial Garden. OMG! So amazing and beautiful!
I also have to include a special THANK YOU to our amazing friend Tricia, who rode along and really helped make this trip truly memorable! ❤ Who doesn’t love traveling with one of their best friends?
Overall, if you get the chance, take a road-trip to Kansas City and enjoy the place! I hope we get a chance to make it out again sometime soon, and hopefully that time the Royals or Chiefs will have a home game we can check out!
