Kansas City Rocks During the Winter

When the chill of winter finds its way into Kansas City, enjoy the warmth of these family-friendly activities. ‘Tis the season to be jolly and spend time with family and friends savoring all the city offers.

Crown Center Ice Terrace and More

Hit the ice (not literally) with family and friends at the Ice Terrace at Crown Center. This public outdoor skating rink is a great way to take a break from the hectic pace of the holidays and beat the winter blahs. While at Crown Center, you’ll enjoy the following:

  • SEA LIFE Kansas City Aquarium
  • Kaleidoscope
  • LEGOLAND® Discovery Center
  • Hallmark Visitors Center

Crown Center is also where you’ll get your shopping done if that’s on your list.

Take the family to the Mayor’s Christmas Tree, lit by 7,200 bulbs; it’s a famous fir more than 100 feet tall and a Crown Center showstopper.

Say Hi to the Penguins and Polar Bears

A visit to the Kansas City Zoo during the winter lets you explore Helzberg Penguin Plaza. Enjoy the cool days of winter with Berlin the polar bear, who doesn’t seem to mind the cold.
