What Isn't there to do in Kansas City?!

Coming to DAX is great. You'll make your business better with the knowledge, sources, and savings you'll gain by attending the show. But when the trade floor closes and you've finished networking at the party, there are still lots of great reasons to be in Kansas City. Whatever you like to do, it's happening in Kansas City during DAX. Check out these links to great events, shopping, and savings we've found to help make your trip more fun and more rewarding.

Within Walking Distance
We know that sometimes you will need something in a hurry. You'll find that the attached Hilton garden Inn has a very nice "convenience shop" by the front desk for many of your snack and personal needs. Also in the hotel is the Great American Grillョ Restaurant. Unlike most hotel restaurants, you will find a number of locals will come here to dine for the great food at reasonable prices, and on Fridays - the chef's Cajun seafood lunch buffet is incredible. Also nearby:

(Hotel Address is 520 Minnesota Ave)
CVS Pharmacy 950 Minnesota Ave
Subway 718 Minnesota Ave
Nick's Italian 714 Minnesota Ave
Lucky Chopsticks 722 Minnesota Ave
BP Gas Station Across the street on 5th Ave

Scott's Picks
Minsky's Pizza / Sports Bar
Great Pizza - try something with chicken on their whole wheat crust.
Kind of like a gourmet-fast food place started by 3 chefs
Hereford House
Great steak house, reasonable price. Original Downtown location burned down, try the Zona Rosa location.
Jack's Stack Barbecue
Kansas City knows BBQ, and this one's got a great modern "sweet & spicy" sauce. For a traditional "Peppery" sauce, try Arthur Bryants. If you have a car and want to get out of town a little ways, try Wabash Barbecue located in the old train depot. Great atmosphere - but no air conditioning!
Arabia Steamboat Museum
My kids got to go there, I had to work. It's on my "bucket list."
The Legends
I'm not a big shopper, but if you can't find it here, it might not exist in this hemisphere.
