Nearby Attractions

While you're here, make sure to taste some of the city with your team. The Kansas City area has just about everything everywhere else does. However, you don't want to leave without trying some of their unique local places. Something like Fritz' Railroad Restaurant, Jack Stack BBQ, Mission Taco, Silas and Maddies (ice cream), Soda Shop in River Market.


There is great shopping around the Kansas City Area. Check out the Oak Park Mall, the Country Plaza District, or Legends Outlets. However, please do not break the 10th Commandment.


Make sure to cultivate memories with your teams and families. While you are in town, have an adventure at some one-of-a-kind attractions.
