These 18 Photos of Kansas City In The 1960s Are Mesmerizing

It’s been a little while since we looked back at the good ol’ days, hasn’t it? Well, the 1960s were a wild time with plenty of new styles and tall hairdos. We were still without phones, and most of us still had a radio in our home along with our tiny (compared to now) televisions. We went to the library, went dancing, and ate at local restaurants. However, there’s some times you want to go way back, and these vintage photos are just what you need. Check them out below for a step back in time.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
