Food Scene
Now listen, BBQ is a very serious subject here in KC. So let me start by saying that this is just the opinion of one humble person and his taste buds. That said...... JACK STACK IS THE BEST BBQ JOINT IN KC BAR NONE! There, i said it... and i meant it. I mean, this place has it all. Dimly lit atmosphere greets your eyes while the smell of pit roasted and grill fired KC BBQ greets your nose. Look, I grade on a BBQ scale that takes into account the sides as well. Potato salad, coleslaw bbq baked beans with pieces of burnt ends cooked in?!! This is madness. I could explain more but now I've gotten all worked up. I'm ordering takeout.

If you are a connoisseur of breakfast food like myself, then this place should be on your BUCKET LIST because.... WOW. Ingredients are natural and organic but my favorite part is that there is absolutely no sacrifice in taste and flavor. We're talking individually selected types of coffee, quiche that will blow your mind, baked french toast, home made biscuits and gravy, BLT's and my personal favorite....the breakfast pizza! I know it may sound strange, but trust me.....you need this. You DESERVE this.

Authentic Mexican food made to order! It's so close that we usually do takeout (less than 5 min away!). We LOVE the burritos and the tortas! This place is open late too! However they do not deliver, but they're so close and so good...who cares!? Oh and did we mention that you can feed 2 adults with only about about $10 BUCKS!

Westport is an affordable alternative to Power & Light and it's a blast as well! This ultra hipster district is more spread out among a few streets as opposed to P&L where everything is all in the same building. But all of the different spots are within walking distance no problem. TONS of individual places that we will list individually just without a huge description. But we labeled them if they're in Westport.

The Nelson definitely makes our list for things to do while in KC! The exhibits and art are amazing. They even used the grounds of the museum to host one of a kind sculptures and creations! Speaking of the grounds, if you want some gorgeous pictures of your visit, then make this the first stop. P.S. be sure to tour both the front AND the rear grounds! Oh and get there early and have breakfast in a stunning dining room surrounded by amazing artwork!

Shopping
If you've got a sunny day during your trip then we definitely recommend heading to the Plaza. SO MUCH SHOPPING! Beautiful fountains to see and visit as well! Be sure to look into getting a romantic gondola ride down Brush Creek on the Plaza in the summer! Horse and carriage rides available too! (Yes they are REAL horses and yes it's pretty cool) There's also plenty of places to eat while you're down there like Cheesecake Factory and Fogo de Chao. Be forewarned though lol the Plaza can be pretty pricey.

Zona Rosa is a similar setup as the Country Club Plaza in the sense that it's great shopping and essentially an outdoor mall. However the biggest difference is that Zona has much more realistic options. No Gucci and Prada out here. This is more American Eagle, Forever 21, Barnes & Noble, The Buckle... those kinda stores :-) Also has REALLY cool places to eat! Like Buffalo Wild Wings, Abuelo's, Cold Stone Creamery, Red Robin and more!

Essentials
This hip urban grocery store is super close and is loaded with everything you might want or need to stock the fridge and cook at home! Also very convenient for any toiletries or small things you may have forgotten to complete your stay! Excellent selection of organic food and fresh produce!
They didn't have a pharmacy category but CVS is one. We list it here because it's directly across the street and for a quick item or two, they are likely to have whatever you need from food to toothbrushes to medication. SUPER convenient location! *NOTE that since this is a pharmacy, they close REALLY early. 7PM kinda early :-/

Our zoo in KC is a MUST SEE destination if you're here! Brand new penguin and polar bear exhibits! It's got an amazing building that they turned into a rain forest habitat and you're able to walk among the rain forest animals INSIDE the exhibit! Loins on the savanna and silver back gorillas in the forest are just a few of the many animals and exhibits to see! Oh and if you're here to visit a KC resident, then have THEM purchase the tickets because the discount for locals is INSANE!

Crown Center is SUCH a beautiful place! Its sights and entertainment are both indoors and outdoors so there's something to do in any season or weather! You'll love the variety of things to do and how picturesque the building and the fountains are! If you're here during the summer, then be sure to bring bathing suits for the kiddos so they can have a blast at the spray park for free right on the grounds of Crown Center!

You have GOT to make a stop at Union Station! It's actually connected to Crown Center mentioned also in our guidebook! You've got to see this place to believe it. This used to be an old train station that has undergone some state of the art restoration. It is SO BIG and SO GRAND that you feel like you've been catapulted back in time when train travel was LUXURY. Definitely one of the BEST places to take pics in KC! The ceilings are so high up that i couldn't even begin to guess how high! Note as well that another bonus to this place is that it is FILLED with niche specialty shops like its gourmet candy store! Oh and even have brunch inside at Harvey's!

We are proud to say that Kansas City is home to the famous Boulevard Brewing Company! These folks turned a local microbrewery to a national sensation! Wanna see what they're up to these days and how they do it? Then look them up and give them a call to set up a brewery tour! We've done it...eh...on more than one occasion ( cough cough) and LOVE it! What beer tour would be complete without beer? Oh you'll have plenty of that while you're there! You even get to taste new and developing brews that they're working on!
