Destination guide

More fountains than Rome

Kansas City may not be uppermost in many US visitors' minds, but those in the know will tell you that you can expect to find more boulevards then Paris and more fountains than Rome. They don't call this the City of Fountains for nothing. There's simply too many attractions and things to do to list in one place, but world-class galleries and museums also await visitors here. Kansas City vacation rentals are available all year round, so you can shop till you drop at the outlets or settle into one of the cozy bars and eateries, even in winter. As the Missouri tourism board's tagline says, enjoy the show.

Things to do

A city packed with attractions

The city is packed full of attractions including the National World War I Museum and Memorial which chronicles the early 20th-century global conflict through eyewitness accounts and poignant personal stories. On a very different note, if you love jazz, you've come to the right place. The American Jazz Museum brings the music form alive through a series of immersive exhibits and the adjoined jazz club which has seen the likes of Charlie Parker and Big Joe Turner. If you're staying in a Kansas City vacation rental with kids, they'll love the city's zoo which is home to 1,700 animals.


Watch a homerun at The K

When you stay in a Kansas City vacation rental, you don't have to go far to find things to do. If you love baseball, take the family down to The K, one of the country's grandest stadiums, to see the Kansas City Royals pitch and make home runs. Alternatively, you can immerse yourself in the lavishly restored Kansas City Power & Light District, an almost billion-dollar entertainment district which houses dozens of restaurants, bars, live music venues and boutique shops. Talking about shopping, head out to Legends Outlets where bargains can be found in dozens of leading designer and brand name stores.


A continental climate in Kansas City

Kansas City's position in the center of the country means it experiences a continental climate. Arguably, the best times to visit are during spring and fall when the temperatures are warm and the skies bright and clear. The early summer sees a little rain, and July and August can be stiflingly hot, but the museums, galleries and Kansas City vacation rentals are all equipped with air conditioning. Don't let the minus degrees in winter put you off visiting the city _ just be sure to bundle up, and pack those comfy gloves.

Natural features

Visit the vast Swope Park

While staying in Kansas City vacation rentals, nature lovers should visit the Lakeside Nature Center to walk through the 1,800-acre wooded Swope Park. It's a wonderful place to picnic with the family and the center houses Missouri's largest wildlife rehabilitation facility. Here, you can see bald eagles, kestrel falcons and hooting owls. Kids will be delighted, but adults will also be beguiled by the cute and majestic specimens on show. Wander through the exhibits to learn about the flora and fauna of the park or sign up for one of the wildlife programs.
