“Sure, because I’ve lived here for several years and have never been able to really explore everything that Kansas or Missouri has to offer. And now that I have kids, I feel like it’s really important to introduce them to that.”

“Yeah. I can’t afford gas. I work to be broke. So staying home and saving some money would be great.”

“Yeah. To me, there is a difference between vacationing and traveling. Vacationing is more of a state of mind and escaping the stresses of everyday life, which can be done anywhere.”

“Oh yeah, because I can’t afford to go any farther with gas prices the way they are.”

We spent a week-end in KCMO and loved every second of it. Our daughter was okay wtth taking a friend and they had a wonderful time. The toy museum,Science City,a Friends of the Zoo happening,getting together with big sister ,staying in a motel with swimming and choosing gifts for other friends seemed like a pleasurable experience. In the end there was plenty of gas left over...did not use even one quarter of a tank. Also ate good food..... yumo!
