Visiting Kansas City

Bring a bib when visiting Kansas City, a sprawling city of more than two million residents that hugs the Kansas-Missouri state line. You’ll need it—KC’s famously sweet, sticky barbecue sauce, slathered on everything from steaks to sandwiches, is sure to tempt any visitor’s taste buds. Once you fill up at one of the city’s restaurantsBBQ or otherwise—check out its attractions. You can stroll through the 150-year-old City Market, visit museums, or have fun at the appropriately named Worlds of Fun & Oceans of Fun. A night out for jazz or other nightlife is a great way to end the day. And when it’s finally time to turn in, there’s no shortage of hotels in Kansas City—if you’re in the mood for some extra entertainment, try a casino hotel.
