Did you know that if you’re looking for something cool to do, you don’t need to hit the major cities? The area around The Highlands has plenty of awesome activities and planned events. Schedule time to stop by or explore at your leisure.
Prairiefire Summer Music Series
Before summer ends, head to the Prariefire Summer Music Series. You can hear KC|OP’s favorite live music acts in this fantastic and free weekly series! It’s ongoing until September 19th. Grab a drink, have a picnic, or simply hang out and enjoy some of the hottest sounds of the summer. Dancing is allowed and encouraged!
Whether it’s the original book or its many incarnations, The Wizard of Oz has delighted readers and fueled our imaginations for more than a century. If you’re a fan, stop by the Expanding Oz exhibit before it closes on November 2nd. Now at Johnson County Museum, you can find one-of-a-kind Oz memorabilia, including items from the film adaptation. Regular museum hours and rates apply.
Local Life Third Fridays
Surely you’ve heard about Third Fridays, where once a month the downtown area really comes alive! It’s the perfect opportunity to explore locally owned shops and activities. You can check out works by queer artists at The InterUrban ArtHouse, grab a slice at The Upper Crust, sample the golden oldies at Vinyl Renaissance & Audio, and much more. If you’ve been looking for a reason for a staycation or simply want to find some hidden gems in town, Third Fridays has it all.
Countless fantastic opportunities are waiting for you in Overland Park. Get to know Kansas City and the local area by planning a staycation instead of traveling the next time you have a break.
