Looking for a relaxing local day trip or mini stay-cation? Head up to Liberty!

Have you ever heard the saying, "if you don't like the weather in the Midwest, come back tomorrow?" Sorry, but it wouldn't do you any good this week in KC. In fact, did you know that Kansas City's coldest month is typically in January when the average temperature overnight is 17.8°F. Well, February said, "hold my beer" this year as the average temp during the past two weeks has been ELEVEN degrees. It's so cold here that we could be setting records during the 14th-16th of the month. But have no fear...in July, the warmest month, the average day time temperature rises to 88.8°F. Can we just fast-forward a few months please?
