Kansas City is a perfect Midwest destination, about a 3-hour drive from Omaha, and filled with enough fun and adventure that makes us wanting to return again soon.
One of our favorite stops is Crown Center and Union Station, Kansas City’s fully restored landmark. This beautiful building now houses restaurants, shops, and many fun attractions.
