Kansas City Passport to Adventure

Looking for something to do in and around Kansas City that WON’T break the family budget? Why not take part in Kansas City’s Passport to Adventure?

All you have to do is visit 15 of the 22 locations featured in the passport and get your stamp to verify you were there. You can grab your passport to get started at any of the locations.

Once you have done that, you turn in your passport at any of the participating locations by October 31, 2009 and you will get a prize!

Your prize package will actually be mailed to you by November 30, 2009, so you do have to turn in the booklet.

What is so great about the passport is the number of sites that are actually FREE for the family. So, why not pack a picnic lunch, load up the family and head on out. You and your kids will LOVE getting outside and experiencing some history and the nature that is right here in the metro. Here is a list of the site you can check out:
