Summer is fast approaching and it is up to students to make the most of the warm weather and time off school.

Kansas City offers many entertaining, yet not very expensive activities that range from theatrical performances to concerts.

Some of these activities are for all age ranges and are family friendly while others are good places to go with a group of friends.
