Beating the Winter Blues in Kansas City

It’s that time of year, the holiday season is wrapping up and you may already be starting to count down to longer hours of daylight, warmer weather, and trips to the K. With two months to go until the first day of spring (March 20) you may experience cabin fever and long for activities that take you out of the house. As your hometown health insurance, we have put together a list of some of our favorite low or no-cost winter activities to do in our beautiful city.
