A Missouri vacation spent in the Greater Kansas City region will be filled with historic and cultural attractions, big city excitement, small town charm and, of course, a variety of Kansas City bed and breakfasts to choose from. History buffs will want to venture to Independence where you will find the Truman Presidential Library and Truman’s home, beautiful examples of Victorian architecture and a number of attractions dedicated to Independence’s role as a stop on the old Western Frontier Trails and Mormon-Church history sites. Kansas City itself offers the Kansas City Zoo, the Nelson-Atkins Art Museum, Worlds of Fun amusement park, shopping in the Plaza and sports events ranging from golf to NFL Football and NASCAR. You might also enjoy venturing out to such smaller towns as Excelsior Springs or Harrisonville for local shopping opportunities and a slower paced life. Finally, if outdoor adventure is your idea of fun, your Kansas City lodging will put you in close proximity to such spots as Smithville Lake or Watkins Mill Historic Site and State Park. Regardless of how you plan to spend your days here, your BBIM-inspected Kansas City area accommodations will be a place to rest and relax each night of your vacation.
Below are recent blog posts about upcoming events and news around the region.
