Springtime Fun in Kansas City

Ready for some springtime fun in Kansas City?  There are many great attractions in the city for you and your family to enjoy.  Here are just a few of the best attractions for you to enjoy this spring.

The Crown Center in the heart of Kansas City is a great place to start your springtime adventure.  They have a great number of different dining options, plus the center features three live theatres and a huge movie complex.  Next door to the Crown Center is Union Station, a historic landmark that houses Science City.  This attraction is a hands-on science center that kids will enjoy.

If you’d rather go outdoors, the Overland Park Arboretum features 300 acres of trees, flowers, and nature.  More than 80 percent of the park is natural ecosystem, while the remaining part of the garden features botanical gardens, a visitor’s center, and a conservatory.  You can wander through the Erickson Water Garden, the Monet Garden, and a learning arboretum.  The arboretum also features many different hiking and walking trails.

A visit to the Kansas City zoo can also be a great springtime activity for families.  The zoo has more than 200 acres and over 1,000 animals, including elephants, kangaroos, camels, and more.  Several new additions, including an indoor rainforest, new viewing decks, and a lion viewing area are now open, and a polar bear exhibit is planned for 2010.

If you need to cool down on a hot spring day, Oceans of Fun is a great destination.  This water theme park features a 72 foot super slide, a water funhouse with cannons and rope bridges, and a 2,000 square foot spray ground for the kids.  For a more relaxing time, you can float down the Caribbean Cooler or visit the Castaway Cove and its swim-up cabana.
