When to Visit Kansas City, Kansas

Since Kansas City experiences the full range of the seasons, you can have a wildly different visit depending on when you arrive. Most tourists prefer to come to this city during the summer months because of the beautiful weather and the abundance of festivals on the calendar. Plus, pro sports offer plenty of entertainment options, and if you love streetcar racing, June, July, and August are the ideal times to visit.

However, tourist activity also surges during November and December. You'll never lack for shopping opportunities in Kansas City, so if you haven't made headway on your holiday shopping list, this is the place to start. Though the temperatures are on the cold side toward the end of the year, holiday lights and decorations turn the downtown district into a wonderland.
