With more fountains than Rome, it offers scenic walks wherever you look. Make a stop on the way to discover interesting neighborhoods and browse through eclectic shops.

Noteworthy, its amazing story, its inspiring architecture and its combination of culture, entertainment and education make Union Station one of a kind. Built in 1914, was a station that was in charge of welcoming hundreds and hundreds of passengers each year. It stopped working in the 80s;  in 1996 the renovations ended and the station was reopened.

From the 90 feet tall roofs,  the huge chandeliers, planetarium, temporary exhibits and the science center along with live theater; this wonderful work of art is a pride for the city. The semi-permanent display station has more than 40 varieties of different sizes and is free. Union Station is full of activities for tourists of all ages, so you can not stop your pace.

“At the heart of the Kauffman Center is a living tradition of extraordinary and diverse performing arts experiences. Ten years of collective research, planning, and design have brought into focus the mission of the Kauffman Center. This is a building for today and for generations to come.”

– Julia Irene Kauffman

I got the opportunity to attend an orchestra performance in the Kauffman Center, and I was speechless! The acoustics are amazing and the events are always incredible. If you are ready to enjoy a cultural event, that’s the option. In addition, if you’re in doubt about ehat to wear, ALWAYS dress up. These events are high-class!

Finally, if you are an antique-freak, you will LOVE the Webster House! Even if you are not, visiting this construction is especially relevant. I had dinner there (I was on a date, that place is PRICY), and as delicious as it was, I would not have been able to afford it in a normal situation.

Still, you can visit the Webster House, check out the things they have there, and maybe buy a one of a kind article that will be a part of your personal collection, because there are things that are unique, beautiful and ranging in prices.

 

Extra travel tips:

Hotels: You can find hotels for any budget, but they range from $15 to $600 USD. Take your pick!

Distances: Ultimately, the distances are not so small, because it is a city of concrete, but you can find things condensed in a single spot, but it is hard to visit every location by foot. Commuting by cab/Uber is easy, and also the bus system is pretty effective.

Clothes: Bring comfortable clothes to sightsee during the day, and dress up classy if you are attending an event during the night! Don’t fear being overdressed. You will love the sparkle of the city!
