The Best Things To Do In Kansas City This Fall
For most, Kansas City might not be on the top of the list of places to visit, but I’m here to change that for you. Autumn in Kansas City is a special time, and with no crowds, it makes for the perfect destination.
After visiting the city last week for my third time, I realized just how much creativity the city grasps making it a one-of-a-kind place. Every corner is boasting with charm that take you back to an industrial era. Burnt orange and brick red trees frame the city on every corner. At night, the trains rummage by as you daze off to sleep, feeling refreshed by morning. History takes over the city holding the National WWI Museum and Memorial open to the public every Tuesday-Sunday. Since the cold weather hasn’t entirely hit the city in full force, it’s truly the best place to visit for fall to still enjoy those outdoor activities. Get ready to bust out your luggage and get going!
Haunted House Capital of the World
Kansas City has a variety of spooky spots including haunted houses and pop-up Halloween bars to get everyone in the spirit. If you’re brave, check out The Beast, declared the Nation’s no. 1 haunted house for 2019 by America Haunts. After that, grab a drink and wind down at the Apparition, a “spookeasy” pop up bar located just North of Kansas City.
Johnson Farms Plants & Pumpkins
If you have time, drive a little further South and head out to Johnson Farms Plants & Pumpkins to pick a pumpkin while treating yourself to a homemade donut. With tons of fun activities for the family, it’s a great way to fully immerse in harvest season. It’s a bit outside the city but the drive is well worth the scenery.
Tailgate at a Kansas City Chiefs Football Game
What’s football season without a little tailgating? Grab your beanie and head to a Chiefs game where the fans don’t mess around. If you don’t have a tailgate, grab a bite to eat inside the stadium and get ready to cheer.
Take in the Scenery
Unlike living in Seattle where the steep hills take over majority of downtown, Kansas City is very flat. Trees can be seen for miles ahead and brighten the streets you walk on. Bright crisp colors of burnt orange and brick red tower over the sidewalks. Enjoy a stroll around The Plaza where you can find every shop imaginable and take in the beautiful scenery.
Eat at The Webster House for Seasonal Fare and Fun Decor
Located right downtown in a historical Romanesque-style school building. The Webster House makes for a perfect night out of fine dining and shopping. Right when walking inside you’ll find seasonal decor, then head upstairs for the local farm to table restaurant with a rotating menu.
