We all need a staycation or a trip to a different city from time to time. Whether you’re a Kansas Citian feeling a little cooped up or a visitor looking for a special City of Fountains experience, picking the perfect home away from home is crucial.
We went looking for unique lodgings around town that showcase that KC spirit. So choose your ideal digs, pack your bags, and get ready for a memorable getaway.
