WHAT IS THE CROSSROADS?
Crossroads is home to Kansas City’s hip and happening food scene. Known for its inclusive culture, this is where chefs and restaurateurs have migrated to show off their culinary flair. Amidst the plethora of restaurants and bars, you will find a mix of night clubs, specialty boutiques and galleries and witness the architecture of days-gone-by. Enjoy some fun people-watching (we won’t spoil the fun here!) as we take you on a 3 hour guided walking tour food adventure through this hip Kansas City neighborhood.

Our Crossroads Cultural and Food Walking Tour helps you slow down and explore Kansas City’s off-the-beaten-path areas, culture and foodie fun, just slightly south of the busy Power & Light District. Get away from the hustle and bustle of the chain restaurants and instead dive deep into the heart of the charming Crossroads Arts District neighborhood where Kansas Citians call home. After the guided tour, explore Kansas City’s neighborhoods with confidence and take advantage of thoughtful recommendations from your local Kansas City guide on the area’s full spectrum of cuisine, restaurants, entertainment and cultural offerings.

One-of-a-Kind Food Tastings – Our guided Crossroads Walking Food Tour will visit five to six Kansas City food tasting locations within the epicurean hot-spot Crossroads Arts District. Mouth-watering food samplings, enough for a hearty lunch, are served from “mom and pop” specialty food stores and one-of-a-kind ethnic eateries. Stops may include Kansas City’s favorite Pizza hangout, a carefully collaborated micro-brew tasting created between coffeehouse and brewery, and Kansas City’s #1 chocolatier.
Eating your way through the tour is just one of the highlights … add a smidge of history, a dash of culture and a pinch of famous name dropping … and you get a delicious afternoon of fun.
