Three Favorite Spring Day Trips from Kansas City

Whether you’re looking for an afternoon getaway or a weekend adventure, these are a few of our favorite trips to take in the month of May.

Living the Dream on the Disney Dream

I don’t enjoy road trips or car travel. Train rides are okay, but a little too slow for my liking. For many years I refused to fly because of a gripping fear. But get me on a boat, and I’m in heaven. The movement of the water is soothing to me, and I feel very relaxed on boats. So why did it take me 44 years to go on my first cruise?

Multi-Generational Travel

Family vacations have taken on a broader definition in recent years. Multigenerational travel—typically defined as three or more generations vacationing together—is on the upswing, with grandparents, aunts, uncles, parents and kids taking more group trips. The trend is expected to boom even more in coming years.

Grant's Farm, St. Louis

One of the most popular attractions in St. Louis for sixty years, Grant's Farm is a great family destination enjoyed by generations. I remember visiting Grant's Farm as a girl, and it was a joy to share this great place with my family.

Have Baby, Will Travel

Everything about pregnancy is an adventure. There are the obvious physical changes—hello, belly!—coupled with an endless stream of emotional roller coaster rides. It can be enough for any woman to want to get far, far away. And why not? Travel is a great distraction from all the changes and stress that show up long before your baby.

Branson, Missouri:

Summer beckons with the sweet promise of vacation season. Far off tropical destinations and European vacations may call to you in your dreams, but the budget may be saying, “Stay close to home.” If you're dreaming of a family trip without breaking the bank, then Branson may be just the ticket.

Wisconsin Dells

Did you know—the idea for an indoor water park was born in the Wisconsin Dells area? Did you know—Wisconsin Dells has more indoor water parks than any other place in the world? Did you know that in addition to water parks, Wisconsin Dells offers many nature and scenic adventures? Did you know—Wisconsin Dells is only a short 8-hour drive from Kansas City?

Camping Out for Adventure

Missouri and Kansas have a multitude of camping opportunities in their state parks. They offer a variety from primitive camping sites to deluxe accommodations with nearly all the comforts of home. Some even have yurts to camp in. Whether you are a frequent or occasional camper, consider some of these parks for a getaway. Most places take reservations and include campsite descriptions.
