Not every conference agenda permits a full morning to sleep in or a relaxing afternoon to yourself. Sometimes an hour or two is all you have—and thankfully Kansas City has plenty for you to do and see.
Hungry? Grab a bite at one of the city’s best lunch spots, including hotspots like The Rockhill Grille. If you’re in need of caffeination instead, Kansas City’s noteworthy coffee scene will keep you energized and ready to face whatever comes next. Plus, most cafes double as impromptu workspaces, perfect for getting caught up on emails with free Wi-Fi. Or, for evening breaks, check out the cocktail culture and toast to a hard day of work.
Do a little sightseeing while aboard the KC Streetcar, a free rail system that connects some of the city’s most iconic districts on a 2.2-mile route, including River Market, Crown Center, the Power & Light District and the Crossroads Arts District.
Visitors who find themselves at the Country Club Plaza can search the Spanish-inspired architecture for some of Kansas City’s most famous fountains—an excellent way to stretch your legs, shop for souvenirs and experience quintessential KC.
