Hi, friends! The holiday season is here, so I’ve put together a list of things to do in Kansas City around Christmas time. I hope you’ll check some of these out!
- Candy Cane Lane
Established in 1958, this street of houses has incredible Christmas light displays. It’s fun to fill a car with friends, grab some hot chocolate, and drive down this street! Candy Cane Lane is located on the 7900 Block of Outlook Street, Prairie Village, KS, 66208.
2. Sar-Ko Par Park
A park with a Christmas lights display that is located on 87th & Lackman in Lenexa. The lights are staying up until Sunday, January 10. This park includes a lake and a beautiful walking trail, surrounded by lit trees.
3. Christmas Card Lane
Christmas Card Lane consists of a few streets of houses with Christmas light displays. It is located west of Ridgeview & north of 151st street in Olathe. This display is available to view until New Years Day.
4. Christmas in the Park
Christmas in the Park is located at Cornerstone Park. The address for that park is 215 N. Center Street in Gardner. This park includes many Christmas displays and is a fun family friendly place to check out.
5. The Ultimate Santa Adventure
This simulation takes getting a picture taken with Santa to the next level. More information about this innovative new holiday experience can be found here. Packages start at $35 per group.
6. Plaza Lights
I’m sure all of you already know that the Plaza at holiday time is beautiful. If you’ve never been, I highly encourage it. The extended holiday hours of the Plaza are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Monday through Saturday, and 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday.
7. Crown Center
The most beautiful place to go ice skating in all of Kansas City during the holiday time. Crown Center is located at 2450 Grand Blvd, Kansas City, MO 64108. It costs $6 a person to ice skate (children and adults over 60 are free).
Have a Merry Christmas, y’all!
