This is a great museum and very well curated. It really is two parts. The inside museum which is excellent and the actual outside memorial which is impressive and if you have not been to Kansas City before, the view of the city is great. This is a must see if you visit Kansas City. parking can be a little tough on the loop road in front of the museum, but it is a nice walk if you can't find a spot. Don't miss the café, great food, wonderful personal service

Argosy Casino

Reviewed By Brett J - Northbrook, Illinois

I like the decor of this Argosy casino. They did a good job of making the interior look interesting and adding some character to the property. Employees were very friendly and helpful. High Limit area was fairly nice too. Oddly enough, two machines in High Limit could not be played and a third machine froze during gameplay and had to be reset. Casino was not as smoky as most other casinos in the area. I would rate Argosy 3.5 stars if I could but had to round down because of the non-existent drink service.

Parkville Nature Sanctuary

The trails are the best hiking trails in the Kansas City area. Trails are rated easy to moderate with some good hills. The trails are very scenic with sites along trails including streams with waterfalls in a very wooded area. Wildlife includes; numerouse species of birds, white tail deer, turkeys, ground hogs/wood chucks, squirrels, turtles, numerous species of butterflies. The trails are not crowded at all, might be about 10 people on the 3.5 miles of trails at any given time.

We've lived within 30 minutes of Parkville for many years but have never visited. Lovely place! We walked the trails, saw beavers, listened to water trickling, saw the waterfalls, and enjoyed the hike. When you are aware from the ballpark, you only hear the nature. Wonderful views - you are in a forest of tall trees with the occasional reflection bench to sit down. No dogs allowed (glad we left Bandit home). We will definitely return!

I've been privileged to receive this acupuncture and massage therapy at Serenity for over two years now and truly can't imagine my life without them. Amy Satterfield is gifted, compassionate and eminently qualified. Through her, acupuncture has provided me with a chance to live an active life again after more than 10 years of debilitating chronic illness. Massage therapy soothes and strengthens my deconditioned muscles (Amanda Nauman & others are also well trained and experienced). Serenity lives up to it's name in its calm, lovely ambiance and in the caring, welcoming staff. It's a soothing and uplifting sanctuary for healing.

The college arranged for a wine & cheese for our 50th college reunion and it was very nice evening. We had a designated driver so were able to enjoy two classes of wine & some delicious cheeses outside in the patio. Thought the prices were very reasonable. All I can say is my Parkville has changed, but then so had we all.

Cinder Block Brewery

Reviewed By nutsgoalie - Norwich, Connecticut

Stopped by here for drink and were greeted warmly by the bartender. He was quite witty and entertaining, which made it worth the stop to begin with. Decent list of beers and ciders. I went with the kolsch, which wasn't too bad and the cider was good as well. Nice space, decent size, and a guy singing in the corner, made it an overall enjoyable experience. I would stop there again and try out some of their other beers.

Linden Square

Reviewed By Chris H - Kansas City, Missouri

Linden Square is in the heart of Gladstone. It is a space that is used for concerts, festivals and even outdoor movies. We came across the space with the summer concert series. On Friday and Saturday nights, the square comes alive with music. The music will vary but the bands are local and the events are free. It is a great way to spend a summer evening. The space has a concession stand or bring our our picnic dinner. The seating is first come first serve, so bring your blankets or lawn chairs. It is very informal and the crowds are of all ages. It is not uncommon to see everyone from young families to older folks all enjoying the evening. This is a great option for a free nights entertainment in the Kansas City area.

Went here to see The Color Purple-The musical. The facility is very nice. The acoustics are good. However, it was a bit tricky to get from the parking garage to our seats but they had guides all along the way directing you. Very nice.
