Racers load a professional kayak into the Missouri River on July 2021 prior to the Missouri 340 which launches at Kaw Point. Kaw Point, many say, is an underused and hidden gem that allows recreational access to the Missouri River.

KCUR wants to know what you love most about Kansas City. What are the cool places and activities that every Kansas Citian should experience at least once?

With two states, multiple cities and millions of residents in the metro, there's almost too much to explore in Kansas City. How do you even start?

KCUR is putting together theUltimate Guide to Kansas City — for longtime residents and newcomers alike — and we want your suggestions.

What are the "hidden gems" of the Kansas City region that more people should know about? Where are your favorite spots — museums, restaurants, stores, trails, community icons, public artworks — that deserve more recognition?

We're especially curious about places and activities outside of downtown — in the metro's many suburbs and surrounding towns.

Tell us below, and KCUR may include it in a future story or installment of our Creative Adventure newsletter.

Check out the rest of KCUR's Ultimate Guide to Kansas City here, and subscribe to our Creative Adventure newsletter. You'll get an email every Tuesday with a different adventure around the region.
