If I had family from out of town visit, I would take them into my closet where we would transport to a snowy realm keeping away talking lions and such. Oh wait,that only happens in the movies. I guess they'd have to settle for The Main Event.- Miracle M., Lee's Summit
On the first day, Sunday, I would treat them to a brunch at bristol, then make our way down to the Negro Leagues Museum. The next day, I would take them to the Zoo, then walk across the street to Starlight Theatre. On the third day, we would go to LC's, then go to Go Ape, a new obstacle course, where we would have a blast. On our fourth day, we would go to Worlds of Fun. On the fifth day, we would go to Union Station to see Science City, The Da VVinci exhibit, and Harvey's breakfast and lunch.- Brooke M., Lee's Summit
I'd take them to the Negro Leagues and Jazz Museum downtown. Also Union Station--particularly the DaVinci exhibit--and, depending on who they are, I'd take them shopping on the Plaza.- Olivia W., Grandview
