It’s time to get ready for holiday guests! To all the Thanksgiving hosts, by now you (hopefully!) have your food and decor plans set. But, what to do after the turkey? We’ve pulled together a few ideas and links to make it a great weekend with family and friends!
See the Lights: From popular neighborhoods to drive, to big lighting displays like the Plaza Lights, KC dazzles this time of year! If you’re feeling extra festive, check out a Holiday Lights Ride, like this one from Kansas City Fun Tours that offers tickets for $20/person.
Eat Local: Kansas City is known for a diverse food scene, and BBQ is a must-stop for out-of-town visitors. Whether you’re loyal to Joe’s, or dig the burnt ends at Q39 or more legendary fare from Gate’s, Arthur Byrant’s and a slew of others, KC BBQ won’t disappoint! And there’s much more to offer beyond BBQ across our fine city, too. See if any of these spots catch your eye!
Shop Local: Bargain hunters will be out for those big Black Friday deals, but don’t leave our local shops behind! Many also offer specials and promotions around this time – and you’re likely to find more unique gifts from local vendors. Get ideas of where to shop and share a little KC love this holiday season! This list of KC’s 2017 best will point you in the right direction for shopping and MORE!
Game Night or Movie Marathon at Home: Break out your best holiday movies with popcorn and cocoa, or gather round the table for serious night of games! A themed night at home can be a great holiday memory maker and it’s easy on the budget! Plan your movie line-up or pick-up some family-friendly games, and you’re set!
We hope these ideas help to make your Thanksgiving holiday the best yet. Wishing you and yours a special holiday!
