Great Gifts for Dads – KC Parent

For families looking to make memories in their hometown, Traci Angel’s 100 Things to Do in Kansas City Before You Die 2nd Edition is a great source for inspiration. This Father’s Day, treat dad to a copy of this guidebook. The secret is out—Kansas City is not only an affordable, friendly place to live and work, it also has a lot to offer when it comes to culture, history, and outdoor adventure. You’ll learn new things about KC along the way. For example, did you know that two beloved baseball players are buried not too far in Forest Hill Cemetery? Famed pitcher Satchel Paige and notorious player and manager Buck O’Neil have tombstones that welcome fans to pay homage. Make a trip to this historic cemetery and then venture for more baseball at the Negro League Baseball Museum in the historic 18th and Vine District. Ever think about walking near the Missouri River? City Market on Saturday is a great place to start. Then walk the River Heritage Trail. Or go the Parkville Platte Landing Park and use that as a starting place for a lovely stroll on a summer evening.
