Adventurers Guide To Kansas City

As Kansas City natives we wanted to make a video about some of the not so ordinary gems for adventurers like ourselves. Sure, we could make an episode about the "normal" Kansas City attractions: Barbecue, Royals, Chiefs, Jazz, Crown Center, and the Plaza. But we are No Ordinary Path after all. If you are outdoorsy like us, whether you live in the metro or are just passing through, we hope this fun little guide will help you get out and explore. Each place listed below is a place our family has been and enjoyed - kid tested and parent approved.


*Disclaimer - this list is not exhaustive and is biased to the Kansas side as that is where we were born and raised. We think you'll enjoy the list anyway and if you have explored more of the Missouri side, we would LOVE for you to leave us a comment and let us know your favorite spots to adventure.
