Best Things To Do in Kansas City

From interesting districts like Westport and the Power & Light to history museums like the National World War I and Steamboat Arabia, Kansas City offers its visitors a cache of things to do. Plus, there are all the stores you could want at the Country Club Plaza, an open-air, Spanish-design shopping district. For art -- and a bit of whimsy (a giant out-of-doors badminton birdie installation) -- there's the Nelson-Atkins Museum.
