Though the cavalcade of sleek black vehicles at Corporate Coach may attract the most eyeballs, it's the attentive service of the driver at each wheel that leaves the most lasting impressions. After opening doors and showing their passengers aboard, the licensed and insured chauffeurs whisk their charges off to myriad destinations. These include Kansas City International Airport, where they help unload bags, and Senior Prom, where they gather ideas for chauffeur couture. Passengers, meanwhile, get to relax amid the plush interiors of their Lincoln Town Car sedan, stretch Hummer or Cadillac Escalade limousine, or even party bus, seemingly far above the hustle and bustle of everyday traffic.
It?s hard to make new friends in a park; but, thanks to KC Crew, friendships have been blossoming all over Roanoke Park, Parade Park, and Penn Valley Park. The secret to their success is rec leagues, in which players compete in kickball, flag football, soccer, softball, and sand volleyball, a beachy sport far preferable to speed eating shells. The organization provides umpires, a game schedule, and a $100 credit at eight local bars awarded to the winning team each week. And after the sun goes down, the organization offers more in-depth studies of the area nightlife through bar crawls, themed to celebrate holidays such as St. Patrick?s Day or simulate a zombie apocalypse.
With Segway Bike & Stroll, visitors can explore Kansas City's past and present via three methods: Segway, bicycle, or their own two feet. Guides shepherd groups to various businesses and landmarks on six eclectic tours?some of which focus on history, others on KC's thriving arts and food scene. On the Museum, Parks & History tour, Segways roll through the city's cultural center, sampling the arts with visits to the Nelson Atkins Art Museum and Country Club Plaza. Likewise, the half-day BBQ, Brews & Bikes tour cycles through neighborhoods such as City Market and the Power & Light District to taste some of the area's best beer and barbecue ribs?a Kansas City tradition since Oregon Trail blazers used them to build their covered wagons.
