New York Magazine Recommends a KC Getaway

Kansas City is the subject of New York Magazine’s most recent Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan.

The online series highlights travel destinations, picking places to stay and eat and sharing activity suggestions and insider’s tips.

Noting Kansas City’s “blossoming culture and art scene, a newly hip industrial neighborhood, and food that goes beyond barbecue,” the article suggested visitors to our fair city book a room at Hotel Sorella or The Raphael Hotel (pictured) for their impressive decor and onsite restaurants as well as Southmoreland’s Oak Street Mansion.

Local favorites Port Fonda, Novel and Story were recommended dining destinations. What to do in KC? Our many arts offerings, including the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art and the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts all scored mentions, as did shops such as Halls and Standard Style.
