It’s that time of year again, and the last minute Valentine’s Day reservations are booking up fast. While we’re all for an opportunity to celebrate love, waiting hours to be seated in busy restaurants isn’t always ideal, so we wanted to give you some alternatives to the traditional Valentine’s Day date.
Fall in Love this February with Kansas City
Whether you just bought a new home in Kansas City or you have lived here for awhile now, there’s a lot to love about this town. Here are some of our favorite things to do in Kansas City during the season of love.
Head to an Antique Store
Go treasure hunting in one of the many antique stores here in KC. With so many places to choose from, you never know what you’ll find. Perhaps some unique items for your home or a gift for a loved one.
Take someone you care about on your antiquing adventure and at the very least, you’ll make some pretty great memories along the way.
A few of our favorites:
Attend an Awesome Brunch with your Significant Other (or Besties)
Let’s be honest, brunch is something you can and should do almost any time of the year. It’s also a great way to avoid the Valentine’s Day dinner-date rush.
Whether you’re looking to get out of the house for some quality time with your SO or you’re in need of some bonding time with friends, you can never go wrong with brunch. Find one that sounds awesome and put it on your agenda for the month.
Some of our favorite spots to do brunch:
Go on a Boulevard Brewery Tour
Tour options include:
Fall in love with the Boulevard on a 45-minute brewery walking tour. Tickets for this option are only $5 and tourists will get to sample different beers at the end.
Pro tip: If you go on a Wednesday, it’s free! Tours fill up fast though, so be sure to plan ahead and get there early.
Smokestack Tour & Tasting
For $25, you can enjoy an in-depth, two hour tour of the Brewery with guided food and beer pairings.
True beer lovers should check out the Unfiltered tour, which includes beers along the way, brand new production stops, and a souvenir tasting notebook and glass.
Check Out One of the Art Galleries
February is a short month, but we still have a ways to go until spring arrives.
If you’re feeling a little bit of cabin fever this month, head to one of the art galleries. If all else fails, appreciating some amazing art might help you forget the cold, at least for a little while.
Galleries we suggest:
- The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art (make sure to stop in the modern art building!)
- Blue Gallery
- Leopold Gallery
Just because it is chilly outside and you couldn’t get a reservation at your favorite restaurant doesn’t mean you have to stay home! Share new experiences with the ones you love and have a fantastic Valentine’s Day or Valentine’s month.
