No matter if you’re on the Kansas side or the Missouri
side, Kansas City is a wonderful place to call home all year long. Summer especially
is a great time to enjoy all there is to Kansas City, as long as you’re not afraid
to venture out in the heat a bit! If you do prefer to stay home and beat the
heat, residents can always stop by the Village West pool between 10 AM and 10
PM, and now that our hot tub
is finally repaired you can get a nice jet massage while you’re relaxing.
Every Father’s Day weekend head over to the Stockyards
District for Boulevardia. At Boulevardia experience “The World’s Finest Pop-Up Party
Nation”, dedicated to deepening the sense of community throughout the Kansas City
area. Enjoy live music, local food and drink (especially the local craft beer
industry), and carnival games and rides for the whole family. For more
information and to see this year’s lineup head over to their website, and while you’re there
follow them on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to keep up with more news and
happenings in the area.
For another yearly summer tradition, head to Berkley
Riverfront on July 4 for some of the best Independence Day entertainment, and
of course fireworks, in the entire Kansas City area. Enjoy an afternoon and
evening full of family-friendly entertainment and activities including two
stages for live music. End the night the only way you can on July 4th,
with what’s arguably the best fireworks show in the region. Learn more and get
tickets on their website, and see other

Kansas City Zoo
Slather up the sunscreen and head over to the Kansas City
Zoo this summer! Started as an idea in 1907 and officially opening in 1909, the
zoo has grown well past the four lions, three monkeys, a wolf, fox, coyote,
badger, lynx, eagle, and other birds. Today the zoo boasts 202 acres of nature
sanctuary, with diverse habitats, cultures, and animals from all around the
world. With events all summer long, the Kansas City Zoo is a must-visit summer
spot! Check out their website for a full calendar of events as well as to learn

Any good Kansas Citian will tell you the best summer
nights are filled with country music! This summer head across the river to KCMO’s
Power & Light District every Thursday for Miller Lite Hot Country Nights

any VIP upgrades to kick the party off right. Check out who’s playing this week
