This was our first trip to Kansas City, and judging from the fun we had and the list of things to do there – the great local eateries, craft breweries and artisan cocktails, the live music scene and the ease of mobility in the city – it won’t be our last! We are casually pretty realistic in our choosing and pickings of how much we will be able to do in a day but we didn’t get to see and do a fraction of what we had hoped to do.  Here’s a few of the things we missed – and what we’ll be back for.

We missed most of the Over & Under Tour

And we will ride The KC Streetcar.

Have you been to Kansas City, MO?  What can do you recommend we do when we go back?  What’s your favorite K.C. BBQ?  What is your best hidden-gem tip?

Judging from this list, we’ll be back a few times!
