Kansas City, Missouri for Babies
Know Before You GoPrinter-Friendly Version
- At a Glance
Kansas City is cosmopolitan yet accessible, providing families with big city fun at smaller town prices. Wherever your tastes run (it helps if you crave melt-in-your-mouth barbeque), there's a wide array of things for families to do here. While many downtown areas fall dormant outside of business hours, Crown Center and nearby Union Station bustle with family-friendly activities. Kids will delight in bounding through the "now you see them, now you don't" Crown Center Square fountains and you'll practically have to pry them out of the inner workings of the city-within-a-city experience of Science City at Union Station. With an enormous city park that boasts a world-class zoo, major and minor league sports teams, and the best barbecue in the world, kids will be having far too much fun to utter the words "I'm bored" during your stay in Kansas City.
