As the largest city in the state, Kansas City is the heart of Missouri.
Kansas City blends Midwestern charm and the excitement of big-city living, so there’s something for everyone. At a senior living community like Kingswood, you have access to both the city’s beautiful surroundings and Kingswood’s many on-campus services and amenities.
Where can seniors go – and what can they do – in Kansas City? Read on for some of our favorite local destinations, all just outside the doors of KC’s best Life Plan Community, Kingswood.
The Plaza Has It All
There are designer stores, luxurious dining options with patio seating, and a breathtaking light display during the holidays at The Country Club Plaza, known to locals as simply “The Plaza.” If you’re searching for a day trip destination that offers great food, amazing culture and fun outdoor activities, The Plaza is the place for you. As one of the world’s largest outdoor shopping centers, it’s the perfect pedestrian-friendly setting for a bright spring day outside. Don’t forget window shopping!
Visit the River Market
Since 1857, the Kansas City River Market has been a major attraction. Over the years, it’s become a shopping and eatery destination. The market has fresh produce, antiques, culture, restaurants and food stalls all around where you can grab a bite for lunch. Don’t forget to check out The Arabia Steamboat Museum, too.
Check out The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art
You might be surprised to learn that Kansas City has an extremely high number of free art exhibits.
We recommend The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, home to renowned collections that attract aficionados and art lovers from all over the world. Besides exhibiting classic and contemporary art, The Nelson hosts festivals, concerts and more. It also features a large sculpture garden on the grounds and an expansive grassy public area perfect for families.
Explore the Great Outdoors – in Kansas City
What better way to celebrate the beginning of spring than a little time outdoors? Visit the Ewing & Muriel Kauffman Memorial Garden to soak up some sun in your spare time, where more than 2 acres of the garden are lined with fountains and walkways.
Another outdoor gem, 75-acre Loose Park has a Civil War battlefield cannon that’s fun to see. The park is known for its size, beauty and duck pond. It’s the perfect spot for a stroll, relaxation, or taking the grandkids for a walk.
Buy KC Royals Senior Tickets
Baseball fans who retire to Kansas City get the Royal treatment.
For the majority of home games (apart from Opening Day and Marquee games), Kansas City Royals fans 65 and above get half-price tickets at the box office. If you would like to take your grandchildren to a Royals game, you can also take advantage of special family discounts. Make a day or night of it at “The K” – classic Kauffman Stadium, the Royals ballpark.
