Winter activities in KC

Jack Patton, Sports Editor

Crown Center is a great place for families and adults alike. With many different things to do, it’s a popular holiday spot. You can go ice skating at Crown Center Ice Terrace. Around the Ice Terrace is the giant Mayor’s Christmas tree with model trucks and cars for the kids to play on. Across the street you can find many shops and restaurants with many decorations like the giant wreath above the entrance of the shopping area. A short walk across the link can give you some great views looking down main street towards downtown. The link connects Crown Center and Union Station for easy access without walking outside. In Union Station you can find another giant tree which is a great spot for photos. The long hallway toward the back of the building is decorated with lights dangling from the ceiling. At the end of the hallway there is a model train set up and a small train kids can ride. With so many activities to do in one small area it makes a great spot for families over the holiday break.
