Some of the places to see include the National World War I Museum, the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, the Kansas City Zoo, the Kansas Speedway and the side-by-side theme parks, Worlds of Fun and Oceans of Fun. Children will love Science City, a hands-on children's museum at Union Station and Kaleidoscope, which allows kids to explore their creativity during free workshops. For adults, there are four casinos located in Kansas City that offer traditional gaming, dining and live entertainment. Kansas City is also home to one of the Midwests largest farmers markets, called City Market. You can find unique boutiques, antique shops, year-round greyhound racing, golf, bumper cars and go-carts, theater and so much more. In addition, after the sun goes down, the area of Westport in Kansas City becomes a nightlife hotspot.
