Whoever said that Kansas City is boring presumably has never visited this place or maybe has a completely different meaning to the word. There are several tasks to do and places to visit. Here is a list of exciting activities:
Get Set for a Barbecue Bonanza
Kansas City has the greatest barbecue in the world! That’s why every year in the first weekend of October they organize a great American series of barbecues from the royal world. Over 500 teams take part in the event, which usually helps in the old stockyards. Some popular barbecue ponds are Oklahoma Joe, Arthur Bryant, and LC-Bar-B-Q. The Arthur Bryant restaurant received iconic status when Hollywood’s presidents and celebrities made a stop to taste the slowly fried ribs made by Arthur.
Like the barbecue, jazz was not born in Kansas City, but here it is more popular than anywhere else. In fact, we now have Kansas City jazz, a popular style developed in the city. The Jazz Quarter is in 18th place, and Vine Sts has an astonishing collection including listening stations, antique posters, and the Louis Armstrong tube. To listen to live jazz, just jump into The Blue Room, a club where locals play for free on Mondays and Thursdays.
Kansas City is probably an American city with fountains with over 200 fountains. Fountains can be found anywhere in this city. While some are simple and elegant, others are complex and classic. In fact, the second Tuesday of April each year is celebrated as the Fountain Day when all public fountains of the city are included. Here, children usually take pictures of fountains when they find them, and follow how many of them they have seen.
From the National War Memorial Museum to the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, the Negro Baseball Museum and the American Jazz Museum, there are many museums in the city. The National War Memorial Museum is the authentic monument of the First World War and contains war artefacts.
Visit The Nelson
The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art has original works by thousands of artists, including Rembrandt, Monet, Van Gogh, and Alfred Jensen. The photo collection includes over 7,500 photographers’ photos, such as Matthew Brody and Diane Arbus. The numerous monstrous shuttlecocks that surround the museum are undoubtedly a great photographic essay.
Visit the Farmer’s Market
Many restaurants in Kansas City pride themselves on the freshest dishes from the farm the to the dining room. In the city and its surroundings, there are several marketplaces where residents like to buy fresh vegetables, fresh meat, poultry, vegetables, cheese, and biscuits. Some of the common ones are the bad seeds market, the Brookside agricultural market, and the city market.
Visit Berlin and Nikita
These are our local stars at the Kansas City Zoo and part of the Polar Bear exhibition. The zoo occupies about 200 acres of land in the city and can accommodate over 1,000 exotic and endangered animals. It will take almost a day to examine this place, especially if you visit this place with your family or love animals. Do not miss the show, especially the bird show, which is nice to watch.
