Kansas City To-Do Guide:
18th and Vine district – it’s been completely renovated and a really neat part of Kansas City’s history. The community was completely segregated at the time that it was built. It’s where the black community used to go since they weren’t allowed out of their (about) 40 block radius except for a few hours on Sunday. Below is a link to the website to give you some insight on what’s available. We suggest the American Jazz Museum which is also connected to the Negro League Baseball Museum.

Here’s a link for our downtown museum – The Nelson Atkins. It is free to the public and $12 to view the exhibitions. nelson-atkins.org
In Independence, you can visit the Harry S. Truman home where he lived with his wife, daughter and mother in law during a majority of his Presidency. There is also the Truman Library – he actually read every book in the library! Nearby is also the Jesse James jailhouse museum, Clinton’s ice cream (Truman’s 1st job), the Vaile Mansion, and the National Frontier Trails Museum which is located on site where the three trails met up.

Kansas City also has the Nation’s only World War I Museum at the Liberty Memorial. It has a nice museum and a tower that you can ride to the top and get a beautiful panoramic view of the city!theworldwar.org/visit/plan-your-visit
There is also Union Station which is VERY close to the World War I Museum and Liberty Memorial tower. Union Station hosts alternating exhibits… July’s will be Mummies of the World ($20.95 per person). You will also find KC’s Rail Experience museum, a planetarium, Science City, an extreme screen theater and several dining options. unionstation.org
From Union Station you can use the city’s free Streetcar to explore downtown, Power and Light and The River Market areas. The streetcar picks up directly outside of Union Station and makes several stops throughout downtown KC. kcstreetcar.org
Power and Light district in the heart of downtown features shopping, dining and cocktails.
The KC River Market area has several outdoor shopping areas including a Farmers’ Market with fresh flowers and produce, dining and entertainment. kcrivermarket.com/play/
