Grab an early morning Strawberry Hill Latte at Splitlog Coffee Co. and snap a pic in front of the iconic Matthias Splitlog Mural (by local artist Gregory Kolsto) or enjoy the rooftop view of the downtown KC skyline. The 403 Club offers an extensive (but not expensive) beer menu, plus pinball and pool. Up for a challenge? Join in on a five-mile Strawberry Hill & Downtown KCK Urban Hike with Urban Hikes KC, or get your creativity flowing with a class at DINKC Studios or Epic Arts.
