Kansas City
The largest municipality in Missouri, Kansas City has an impressive array of world-class museums, shopping areas, and great places to eat, all of which attract tourism to the area.
Get in touch with nature at Loess Bluffs National Wildlife Refuge and Burr Oak Woods Conservation Area. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site and Glore Psychiatric Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Kansas City: Pony Express Museum (in Saint Joseph), Pirtle Winery (in Weston) and Amelia Earhart Birthplace Museum (in Atchison). Next up on the itinerary: wander the streets of Massachusetts Street, contemplate the long history of Bothwell Lodge State Historic Site, examine the collection at Evel Knievel Museum, and get engrossed in the history at Jesse James Birthplace Museum.

In May, daytime highs in Kansas City are 76°F, while nighttime lows are 57°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 24th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
