Kearney is a city in Clay County, Missouri, United States. Change things up with these side-trips from Kearney: Saint Joseph (Robidoux Row Museum, Pony Express Museum, & more), Weston (Holladay Distillery & Pirtle Winery) and Buffalo Soldier Memorial Park (in Leavenworth). There's much more to do: take an in-depth tour of Jesse James Birthplace Museum, look for all kinds of wild species at Burr Oak Woods Conservation Area, get your game on at Fun Farm, and contemplate the long history of Liberty Jail Historic Site.

Plan my trip to Kearney with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.
