Hey, I can fly. Let me explain… I can fly with the help of a zip line, a few D-rings, and some great tour guides. But in the pictures, it looks like I can fly!

I recently visited Zip KC - a zip line course that sends you flying through the forest at speeds up to 60 miles per hour! I had never been zip lining before so I wasn’t sure what to expect - maybe I’d hit a tree, maybe I’d drop my camera, maybe a tree would drop my camera (anything is possible), but luckily none of that happened and I had an amazing time! 

Think about the fastest you’ve ever driven your car. For most people, myself included, the fastest they’ve topped out at is 100 MPH. But even then, did you really go 100 MPH??? Did you really see the street signs whizzing past your window? Did you really feel like you had control of your vehicle? Maybe you did, I’ll have to take your word for it.

   Recently I had the opportunity to set off for a night of fun and adventure to Chateau Avalon and the Legends Outlets Kansas City. We arrived at the hotel around 5:30 pm where we were greeted with a friendly welcome and great service. After receiving the room keys, we headed to our “adventure-themed” room. Our room was labeled the Castaway Room so we weren't totally sure what to expect.

As we welcome the New Year we also welcome a sense of curiosity to see and try new things. Kansas City, KS is a place that’s full of opportunity to do just this. Here are four unique experiences you can have this winter in Kansas City, KS.

Another year has come and gone. The holiday season in full force, which means your mind is filled to the brim with thoughts of gift wrapping, family parties and "Jingle Bell Rock" playing over and over and over. With all this hustle and bustle you probably are nowhere near thinking about what you’ll do to welcome in 2017. Don’t sweat your plans on how to make this year the greatest one yet. Kick back with your cup of hot cocoa or mulled wine and check out the exciting plans Kansas City, KS has

Let me start off by saying, I wait all year long for Halloween. Very few things make me as giddy as the thought of cool, dark nights, creative costumes and the scares, oh the scares. I crave a good scare. Heights? Child’s play. Gory horror films? Bring it on! Clowns? Eh, I may sweat, but I can handle clowns. So when I heard 3rd Street Asylum, a haunted house in Bonner Springs, KS, was opening early for one night only, I knew I had to jump at the chance to get my Halloween fix.

The time has come again to put away the pool toys and begin thinking about early mornings, packing school lunches, and the moans and groans that come along with homework. While not everyone looks forward to going back to school, preparation doesn’t have to be hectic. In fact, you can make it fun! With summer coming to an end, make the most of your precious time with a weekend back-to-school shopping trip to Kansas City, KS!

If you asked me two weeks ago what I knew about roller derby I couldn’t say much beyond the fact that they wear roller skates and Drew Barrymore starred in a movie about it a while back. Oh, and I saw the Kansas City Roller Warriors a few years ago, but my seats were far back and my adorable niece was being a bit distracting. The combination of the two made it hard to pay attention. However, when I heard the Kansas City Roller Warriors were moving from the Kansas City Convention Center to Memorial Hall in Kansas City, KS I was intrigued.
