Kansas City Trip Series

Kansas City is a large metropolitan city in the heart of America, only about 45 minutes away from Lawrence. Once a month, ISS will plan a trip to a different location in the Kansas City area and will bring students there on a bus. (Examples include a Sporting KC Soccer Game, the Kansas City Zoo, the Nelson Atkins Museum of Art, and Shopping on the Plaza.) Students must purchase a ticket to participate in advance, and we will advertise each trip individually.

Upcoming Trips

Saturday, April 13, 2019  |  10:00a.m.-5:00 p.m.

We'll take a bus to the beginning of the streetcar line in City Market. From there you can enjoy the farmer's market and the flea market, visit the museum of the sunken Steam Boat Arabia, hop on the streetcar to the Power and Light District for lunch, head to Union Station to one of the museums, exhibits, or movies, visit the galleries and shops in the Crossroads Arts District, take a double-decker bus tour of KC, or ride around city market by bike! The day is yours, it's up to you how you spend it!
