ROAD TRIPS AND EASY GETAWAYS

Find adventures within easy reach or create your own KC staycation. Set out on a day trip to the oldest distillery west of the Mississippi River, visit Harry S. Truman’s historic home or plan a stay in the heart of a vibrant Downtown, all in one of America’s most affordable metropolitan areas.

CREATIVE BREAKS

Get to know the artists, musicians, chefs, mixologists, and others who embody the innovative spirit of KC in our video series, "Creative Breaks." Find plenty of other ways to support our community with local dining and shopping, virtual tours and other only-in-KC activities. 

DELICIOUS DINING

For us, farm-to-table cuisine is more than a catch phrase; it's our way of life, from fine dining to neighborhood haunts. Follow your appetite to modern food halls, trend-setting food trucks and, of course, our legendary barbecue that's uniquely KC.

IT'S IN OUR NATURE

Hike your way to a tumbling waterfall. Bike through urban trails that feel miles away from it all. Stroll among wildflowers and gardens filled with blooms. In and around Kansas City, there's plenty of space to get out and spread out. 

SEE HOW WE DO ART

ARTISTIC EXPRESSION

Kansas City's creative culture continues to thrive. Find eye-popping murals and dramatic outdoor installations all throughout the city, from the top of the Convention Center to stunning urban canvases in the Crossroads Art District.

LOCAL VIBES

Every corner of our city has a story to tell. Explore the revitalized Downtown, and hop aboard the free KC Streetcar to the buzzing Kansas City Power & Light District. Historic jazz is the cornerstone of 18th and Vine, and repurposed warehouses have transformed the heart and soul of the Crossroads Arts District. 

MADE IN THE MIDWEST

This is a city where people come to create. Handcrafted goods are what we do best, from small-batch botanical syrups and ceramic art to modern fashion and much more.
