We wanted a few more days on our road trip--a month on the road, but we weren't ready to go home yet. It was so lovely to buy ourselves some time, just us four. And we found that time in the Power + Light District of Kansas City.
Don't get me started, or I'll rave. The beautifully preserved architecture was enough to keep us entertained; not to mention all the free stuff to do, like the train exhibit at the gorgeous Union Station (it might put Denver's to shame?) or Hallmark's Kaleidoscope (seriously, it's a wonderland)! We stayed at Hotel Phillips, where I felt v fancy in the best, old-fashioned way. We had delightful (and vegan!) dinner at Cafe Gratitude; breakfast the next morning at Cosentino's; and (more vegan!) lunch at Füd. I also grabbed at coffee at Goat Hill, cute and blue, on the way out of town.
I don't know why we haven't made this a stopping point on our westward drives before; but Kansas City, I think I'll be seeing you in the future.
