Visitors head to Prairiefire for the trendy boutiques, jaw-dropping attractions and crave-worthy restaurants. This summer, the entertainment continues every Thursday night with live music 7-10 p.m. through September 19. Pro tip: go early for dinner and snag a patio seat.
There’s no place quite like Oz. Explore what you don’t know about the Wizard of Oz with the Johnson County’s newest exhibition (opening June 1), “Expanding Oz.” Check out the one-of-a-kind Oz memorabilia and pop culture. Regular museum hours & rates apply.
A breathtaking art display floats above the grass at Kansas City’s Union Station this summer. The sculpture measures 12,000 square feet and is created by 75,000 streamers of metalized film forming a silver wind wave. It’s an amazing photo op and the perfect stop before or after you hop on the Downtown KC streetcar.
