Barbecue, jazz, Steamboat Arabia, and the Liberty Memorial, you probably know. But a comprehensive list of must-dos in Kansas City and the surrounding area also includes such lesser-known attractions as ghost tours at Belvoir Winery in nearby Liberty; the fusion of dance, aerial acrobatics, fashion, and live music in a performance by the imaginative ensemble Quixotic; and the eclectic collection of bracelets, brooches, and other adornments at Leila’s Hair Museum in Independence.

Longtime journalist Traci Angel walks through an array of Kansas City’s bucket-list experiences, offering the best day-trip destinations, draws for out-of-towners, and offbeat pleasures in a discussion of her new book.
