Travels 2016: Showing off great attractions in Missouri

History and beauty topped our visits to Missouri during 2016. From the days of Lewis and Clark to beautiful art, we enjoyed our stops in Kansas City, St. Joseph, as well as Pulaski County. Pulaski County ranks high on my list of fun trips. We took in the Civil War, Route 66, an old railroad […]

Smelling the flowers in our Midwest botanical gardens

Spring is in full bloom. So are the flowers and plants in our area. We thought we’d take a look at the botanical gardens available to Midwesterners to take in nature’s beauty. Lisa and I realized we’ve been to quite a few during our travels wound the Midwest. I know we’ll see more gardens as […]

Looking for something different for Kansas City dining? Try these spots

Kansas City may be Ground Zero for great barbecue, but it also has some wonderful non-BBQ options for visitors. We usually eat BBQ at least once during a visit there, but we do like to “spread the wealth” for meals. We have found some excellent places to dine in the Kansas City metro area. We […]

What to Expect when flying high with iFly

I believe I can fly. Well, I did fly a couple weeks ago at iFly in Overland Park, Kansas, a suburb of Kansas City. I had heard about iFly – an indoor skydiving facility – before, but, I didn’t know it would be so soon that we would have one this close to us. I […]

Art, history and flying in Kansas City

Sometimes, a weekend trip can be organized. Sometimes, you wing it and go where the wind sends you. In this case, the wind sent us to a world of Missouri culture, history and actually into the wind. Lisa has wanted to visit Kansas City’s First Friday art district activities, so we headed down from Omaha […]

Kansas City downtown walk connects the past to the present

Kansas City’s downtown is full of history. It’s told through buildings that rise high from the streets. The steel and brick date back to the 19th century. The city continues to change, with buildings joining the skyline within the last decade. Downtown is divided into districts – Library, Civic Center, etc. You can spend hours […]

Kansas City: Looking for unique photo ops around Crown Center Mall

When you go to the mall or museum, do you explore the area? Or, do you just look for the reason for your visit? It’s easy to ignore the surroundings and just follow your path. We’ve all done it. While spending a morning in the Crown Center Mall area, I wanted to explore more than […]

Alamo Drafthouse Cinema: Luke, it is your theater

This is the theater you’re looking for.  In less than 20 years, Alamo Drafthouse theaters have made their mark with movie fans. They offer a fun, clean atmosphere for people to watch movies. They, also, do not tolerate talking or cell phones during feature presentations. We’ve been to two of the about 30 locations. The […]
