Kansas City, Missouri

After our exploration of Cave Springs Park, we were hungry. We decided to get lunch at a barbecue place. After a wild goose hunt using my phone led us to a closed Arrowhead Stadium, we decided on a local place called LC's Barbecue. We ate a delicious lunch and then headed into Downtown Kansas City to do some exploring. We found a free place to park near the National World War I Museum and Memorial and then set out to explore. The memorial itself is pretty impressive,

and there are some great views of the Kansas City skyline from it.

Next we headed over to nearby Union Station.

We wandered around a little bit and stumbled upon a free model train exhibit that we all enjoyed. Then we headed outside and walked around for a bit before finding a stop on the free streetcar line.

We rode the streetcar to the City Market where we did some more exploring. Then took the streetcar back to Union Station and walked to the car. Our final stop on our Kansas City Tour was the Boulevard Brewery. Noelle and I sampled some brews. (Despite this photo, Sierra did not!)

We also took advantage of the free camper/photobooth.

After our visit to Boulevard, it was time to hit the road and start making our way back north. We made it to Des Moines, where we are spending the night.
