If you’re getting ready for a trip to the Midwest, visiting Kansas City is a must. The city has huge jazz, art, and BBQ scenes, and promises plenty of fun for the whole family. It’s also quite affordable with many free activities you can enjoy. Here are some of them.
There’s free transportation in the city that will take you anywhere you want to see. You don’t need your own car to see the city and you can reach many different places fast. Save the energy for various tours and hop on the streetcar to take you places.
Kansas City has over 200 fountains, 48 of which are publicly held. This means you can freely see them and photograph them. Make a day of it and go on a fountain hunt without a paid tour!
The monthly event known as First Fridays happens at the Crossroads Art District. You can reach it with the streetcar and enjoy music performances and your dose of art and culture. There are food trucks available so you can stay even if you’re hungry.
