Itinerary – Couple's Weekend in KC
Whether it’s your first trip together or you’ve been escaping here for years, you’ll find that Kansas City’s potent mix of luxury lodging, unforgettable sightseeing and romantic dining destinations make for the perfect couple’s getaway. No wonder it’s been named one of America’s most romantic cities. All that’s left is to book your trip.
Guide your experience with this itinerary for a couple’s weekend in KC:
Jax Fish House & Oyster Bar
Grab dinner at this sustainable seafood establishment known for its fresh flavor. Not too hungry? Split a few appetizers or oysters from the raw bar during happy hour, 4–6 p.m.
Treat yourselves to something sweet at this ice cream shop founded by premier chocolatier Christopher Elbow—and beloved for eclectic and classic tastes.
Chaz on the Plaza
Cap off your evening at this low-lit, dynamic lounge that touts traditional cocktails, a great wine selection and live weekend performances.
Saturday Morning – Slow Start
Weekends in Kansas City are defined by exploring one neighborhood to the next. So start your Saturday morning slowly and ease into the fun by heading to Westport, a hip district just north of The Plaza.
Caffeinate at this local roaster, a neighborhood favorite with exceptional coffee drinks and baked goods to snack on before brunch.
Speaking of brunch, head around the corner after java and hit up KC’s first gastropub for elevated comfort food such as chicken and waffles, Dutch babies and a variety of daytime drinks.
Saturday Noon – Stock Up On Souvenirs

After you’ve fueled up in Westport, wander around town in search of unique keepsakes to remember your Kansas City trip by.
Boulevard Brewing Co.
The founder of KC’s craft beer scene continues to innovate—to the benefit of visitors and locals alike. Swing by the brewer’s Beer Hall for tastes from 24 different taps, free tours (sign up early, spots fill up fast!) and exclusive swag.
Head back to The Plaza to rest up before your night out. But before you do, make sure you swing by Hallmark’s specialty boutique store, which offers shoppers crafts, cards and more from local makers and artisans.
Sit down at a table for two in this cozy, chef-driven restaurant, which offers sophisticated takes on rustic dishes in a setting that seamlessly marries casual and upscale dining.
KC’s first legal distillery since Prohibition is the ideal spot to be after dinner (or before, if you prefer). Toast your relationship with handcrafted drinks—made using ‘20s-style spirits—and linger to enjoy the Gatsby-era atmosphere together.
Green Lady Lounge
A quick jaunt across the district leads you to one of the best nightlife spots in the city. Free cover, good drinks and, most importantly, smooth jazz make the Green Lady an essential date-night stop.
Sunday Morning – Wind Down the Weekend
Before you head back home, make sure you finish the weekend right by visiting some Kansas City favorites.
Happy Gillis Café & Hangout
One of the most popular breakfast/brunch/lunch destinations in the area, wake up after your night out with farm-fresh fare and morning libations, if you so desire.
The City Market
No KC weekend trip is complete without touring The City Market’s farmers market, a rain-or-shine showcase of the area’s finest produce, spices, goods and more.
The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art
Speaking of things that can’t be missed, this museum is one of the finest such institutions in the country—and completely free. Marvel at its collection before heading home after a successful romantic weekend in KC.
In Kansas City, we enjoy a rich grape growing and winemaking history. Ready to swirl, smell and sip some of our local terroir? Here are some local wineries on both sides of the state line to help get you started.
While surrounded by and encompassing some of the most beautiful natural environments in the region, KC features a collection of picnic-friendly locations as accommodating as they are scenic.
