What is there to do in Kansas City??? Lots! If you plan to visit KC, visit this thread first...
Top things to do in Kansas City
I thought I would post a comprehensive thread of what there is to do in Kansas City. It’s a question often asked on this forum and others and with my photography and passion for my hometown, I thought I would create a thread that showcases what KC has to offer. I hope people like it and they find it useful and informative.
Please add more ideas as I'm sure I've missed some.
National World War I Museum at Liberty Memorial
The Museum is very well done and very entertaining while educating. The view from the top of the observation deck is breathtaking. National World War I Museum
This place is just amazing. Even if there is nothing going on at the station, it’s well worth a visit just to see the building although most of the time there are popular traveling exhibits there and the model railroad exhibit is amazing. If you have kids, the IMAX and Planetarium are great and Science City is worth a visit. (don’t forget to walk cross the bridge behind the station which goes over the railroad tracks to the freight house where you will find Jack Stack, a great sit down BBQ place among others) Union Station, Kansas City, MO
Kansas City Power & Light District
Kansas City’s new downtown “living room”. This entertainment district host many restaurants, theaters and night clubs. The AMC Mainstreet is one of the best theaters there is. The historic Midland host concerts, comedians etc, there are popular restaurants like Bristo and KC LIVE! is a two level night club district that is extremely popular on weekend nights.

Kansas City has some of the largest Casinos in the Midwest and one of the largest in the country (Ameristar Kansas City). If you plan to visit the casinos, I would visit them in this order:
1. Ameristar 2. Harrah's, 3, Argosy, 4. Isle of Capri (Ameristar has a movie complex and concert arena and much more, Ameristar and Harrah's have large hotels)

I have a question. I notice that you often post photos from kcphotos.com. These photos are copyrighted. Have you received express written permission to post these photos here? Because if not, what you are doing is wholesale copyright infringement. It clearly says at the bottom of every page on kcphotos.com that:
"All images and web content are copyright by Bill Cobb/KCPhotos.com unless specified otherwise, and may not be used without permission."
Thanks everybody, and please do add more ideas and keep this thread active. If you only knew how long it took me to build that post .
freestater. I own kcphotos.com and skylinescenes.com and took all photos on both websites. So I do have permission.
It is nice to know we are looking out for copyright interests on the web.
