REASONS TO VISIT KANSAS CITY IN FALL

With its pleasant fall weather sandwiched between the infamous Midwestern winters and muggy summers, Kansas City is a great place to visit. Aside from the agreeable weather, the season offers some of the best festivals in the city, such as Louisburg Cider Mill Ciderfest and Plaza Art Fair. But the American Royal World Series of Barbecue is the most renowned. This year marks the 41st anniversary of the world’s largest barbecue competition, complete with rodeos, concerts, and an abundance of pork ribs and beef brisket to see you through the winter. The greatest barbecue restaurants in the city, such Q39, Joe’s Kansas City Bar-B-Que, Gates BBQ, and Arthur Bryant’s, never let you down, even when it’s not festival season.REASONS TO VISIT KANSAS CITY IN FALL

 

When you need a break between meat sweats, KCMO’s other claim to fame can help: live music. Cozy up on a cool night at Green Lady Lounge or the Blue Room, two of the city’s best jazz clubs; or dress up for an evening performance at the Kauffman Center.

Where to stay

Kansas City has seen an uptick in boutique accommodations in the past few years. One of the most recent additions to the hotel scene is Crossroads Hotel, which opened in late 2018 in a former Pabst Blue Ribbon distribution plant. The exposed brick walls and locally sourced decor echo the similarly industrial and artsy Crossroads district, which is within walking distance from the hotel and prime for exploration.

 

The Fontaine is closer to the Plaza area—the city’s premiere shopping district. Its crystal chandeliers and Renaissance paintings announce luxury as soon as you enter the lobby, while the spacious guest rooms are ideal for stretching your legs after a busy day of retail therapy.

One of the largest breweries in the Midwest, Boulevard Brewing Company is known for giving back to the community. The company donates beer to charity events, and partners with tons of local businesses and nonprofits. (It also hosts Boulevardia, an urban street festival that celebrates sustainability and supports Kansas City–based charities, although that takes place in June).
