If I had guests from out of town and was given the chance to show them around Kansas City, I would take them to Crown Center first. Crown Center has always held fond memories with family and plus there are some pretty amazing places to eat at! Then I would take them to a Royals game at Kauffman Stadium because anyone who visits KC has to watch the Royals play (and win)! The last place I would want them to see would be Breakout KC, an escape room in downtown Kansas City.- Jessica H., Woodneath Library Center
I would take them to the Plaza in the morning and then to Jack Stack for lunch. Then I would take them to the zoo then to The Cheesecake Factory for dinner. Then for the grand finish I would take them to a Royals/Chiefs/KC Sporting game (If there sports fans) or go to Starlight.- Macy N., Red Bridge
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
