Tucked along the border of Kansas and Missouri is Kansas City, the unheralded jewel of the Midwest. For too long, this city has flown beneath the radar of travelers—but not yours. You’ve heard of its legendary sports teams, and the jazz scene it has so carefully cultivated over the years. The place’s history is deeply entwined with its downtown and its people, and you, wise wanderer, are ready to experience it all. Bring on the barbecue, the friendly people, and the roar of the crowds from Arrowhead Stadium—coincidentally named the “Loudest Outdoor Stadium in the World” by Guinness World Records. You are ready for the noise, the new friendships, and most of all the food. Book downtown Kansas City hotels, such as the Admiral Inn Kansas City Downtown, through Travelocity, and watch the adventure of a lifetime unfold before your eyes.
Any budding foodie knows the excitement that comes with Food Truck Friday. At the end of every workweek, the best food trucks in the land gather to offer discerning eaters a delicious selection of grub. The city does not host an official Food Truck Friday, but numerous food trucks band together to meet at locations throughout Kansas City on Fridays, usually between May and August. Popular gathering areas include Union Hill Cemetery and 18th & McGee Streets. Whet your appetite with gourmet sandwiches, pizza, Italian food, and even doughnuts. All that deliciousness is bound to leave you weary, but fear not; plenty of our Kansas City downtown hotels are nearby—though you may need to be rolled back to your room.
The Kansas City Chiefs football team plays at Arrowhead Stadium, located at 1 Arrowhead Drive. The stadium is located between the 435 and 70 freeways, and sits adjacent to Kauffman Stadium, where the Kansas City Royals play during baseball season. Arrowhead Stadium is within walking distance of several fast food establishments, and only a quick drive away from sit-down restaurants. If you’re visiting with the intention of taking in as much of the Chiefs as you can, book a room in America’s Best Value Inn & Suites– Kansas City, Downtown, just 20 minutes west (depending on traffic). Close proximity to the stadium makes it easy to arrange a tour, or to visit its art collection, which celebrates the creative work of local artists.
