Vacationing in Kansas City can be so much fun! Especially when you vacation a little differently by staying in an RV. An RV allows you to get a lot closer to everything the city has to offer when compared to staying in a hotel.
It also enables you to travel the area looking for the most social media-worthy sights to post to Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.
But where do you look for that once-in-a-lifetime shot in Kansas City? Here are a few ideas that will leave you with snaps that you’ll want to share with all of your followers.
Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art
The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art provides amateur and professional photographers with plenty of opportunities to take some great pictures.
There are plenty of sculptures and artwork to take pictures of inside, but there are even more great photographic opportunities outside.
Take some pictures out in the expansive gardens or take an artistic shot of the majestic front of the building. The giant shuttlecock in the yard is a favorite among amateur photographers.
Power & Light District
Some of the most striking images are taken at night. Colorful lights make areas of the city look completely different when the sun goes down. If you’re looking for some fun nightlife snaps, head to the Power & Light District.
This downtown area features dining and shopping, but the real photographic opportunities happen at its bustling nightlife venues.
With multiple entertainment venues, bars, and cafes, there is plenty to do in the evening hours, which includes taking pictures of illuminated buildings and musical acts.
If sports are more your thing, you definitely have to visit Kauffman Stadium. Home to the Kansas City Royals, this renovated stadium offers some impressive features and an undeniable energy that can easily be captured on film.
Take a picture of the crowd, turn your attention to the field, or simply take pictures of anything that catches your interest in the stadium.
Kansas City Zoo
Few other photography subjects are as rewarding, or as challenging, as animals. If you want to post some impressive animal pictures to your social media accounts, stop by the Kansas City Zoo.
There are many wonderful photographic opportunities that include:
- The African Sky Safari
- The Zebra Tram
- Boat cruise near the African Plains
- Orangutan Canopy
- Helzberg Penguin Plaza
It’s not just the animals that will attract your attention. With over 202 acres, detailed natural exhibits, and swarms of adults and children that visit the zoo during the warmest months of the year, there is no shortage of social-media worthy shots for the attentive photographer.
All of these places will provide you with plenty of great photographic opportunities, but they make great backdrops too. Don’t forget to use these locations to take wonderful pictures of the friends and family you’re traveling with!
Any location can provide you with some great photographs, but these four are great options in the Kansas City area that you’ll be proud to post to your social media accounts.
