We are going to have fun now!
This is one of my favorite places.
Webster House. Built in 1885
as the Daniel Webster School.
The school closed in 1932. In
1992 the former schoolhouse
opened as a beautifully restored
store and restaurant. The rooms
on the first floor house the store
with many antiques, home decor
and gifts. The second floor houses
the restaurant. This was where we
celebrated our five year anniversary
(several years ago). The meals served
are soooooooooooo good, it would
be so hard to describe! Heaven!!!
Visitors can enjoy Happy Hour,
Dinner, Late Night and Brunch on
Sundays. What is nice for Webster
is that the Kauffman Center is just
North of them. A win-win for both.
Don't be surprised like I was when the
school bell rings!
On to World's of Fun! Opened in
1973 and offers 235 acres (which
I have walked MANY a time) of
rides and attractions. The park's
theme comes from Jules Verne's
book "Around the World in 80
World's of Fun offers visitor's
15 thrill rides- 7 of which are
roller coasters , 14 family rides,
Planet Snoopy for the little ones
and 7 venues of live entertainment.
If you are BRAVE, check out the
FUN if you are in town.
Now moving on. The face
and mouse above are quite
recognizable. Yes, Walt Disney
has a KC connection. I'll be
honest--there is so much about
his time in KC that I couldn't
decide what to write about so
I hope you will take some time
to Google Walt Disney or go to
Very intersting stuff here!
Well, folks we have reached
our last destination on our
tour. The Kansas City ZOO.
It was founded in 1909 and
covers 202 acres. I'm sure I
have walked them also. The
zoo shares it's parking lot
with Starlight Theatre
(yesterday's post). Lots to do
here. Sea lions Tigers and Polar
Bears OH MY!! These are some of the animals visitor's get to
see on a visit and there are
over 1,300 animals that make
their home here. You can
explore Africa, Austrailia and
a Farm while you are here too.
Stop in an check out what is
playing on the IMAX screen.
As I have said before, this has
been fun and eye opening for me.
I have lived in two KC suburbs
during my lifetime but like everyone
else vacation elsewhere. Why?
Cause home is there all the time.
Going out of town isn't always a
choice we get to make. Explore
YOUR town, find out things that
you didn't know about the place
you live. I guarantee it will be FUN!
