While a booming metropolis, KC is nestled conveniently near a multitude of outdoor landscapes dying to be explored. Go hiking with family or friends, or take a trip by yourself for some much needed “you-time.” The lush, rolling hills and windswept meadows of Powell Gardens beckon visitors to discover the attraction’s displays. In the city, you’ll find Loose Park just south of the Country Club Plaza, perfect for a picnic or few hours of fresh air.
Travel north to North Kansas City for a wide assortment of urban nature areas and dog parks. While you’re there, grab a paddle and hit the courts at Chicken N Pickle, a hybrid, chef-driven restaurant/entertainment venue. Speaking of outdoor hangs, countless bars and restaurants around the metro accommodate patio dwellers during springtime weather.
Check out Harry’s Bar and Tables in Westport for casual evenings, Brewery Emperial in the Crossroads Arts District for beer brewed in-house, Café Trio off The Plaza for stellar views and Leinenkugel’s in the Power & Light District for satisfying bar bites.
