    Party = KC Power and Light district, or Westport

    Eat = take your pick. Some good places down on the plaza if you're goin a lil more fancy.

    Things to do = you do realize it's KC? All we have here is the Chiefs... maybe a couple of bowling alleys or something... but really just the Chiefs.

    Team motels idk about but I do believe that visiting teams usually stay in the motel that is right across I-70 from the sports complex.
    Thanks for all the yards, TDs, and memories, Priest!

    The only thing I'll add to that for eatery is go get some bbq! I've tried various "areas" of bbq, texas, southern, etc and KC has the best bbq.

    there are things to do. If you like art there's the Nelson-Atkins museum. The KC Renaissance Festival is going on the weekends. For shopping there's the Plaza or Legends at Village West. There's bars and such out at Legends too.

    BBQ is a must! Everyone has a favorite place, but the one most everyone can agree on is Oklahoma Joes.

    As Stoneygirl suggested...shopping, eating & such at the Legends district. They also have that huge resort log cabin hotel & indoor water park by Legends, but have heard it's pricey to stay there. Cabela's is an attraction for many in the Legends district too.

    Downtown has the historic waterfront district on the Missouri River...hotels downtown too, & not 'that' far from Arrowhead. There's the historic Jazz district downtown as well.

    You may want to consider arriving at Arrowhead early on Sunday morning, to avoid stadium traffic. I've found it's best to get there no later than 10:30 for a noon game. It can take a good hour sometimes just to move a couple miles on 1-70's stadium lane exits if you get caught up in the traffic pushing game time.

    I have found it best to be at the gates about 7:45-8:00 and wait in line - no moving traffic until the gates open but time to get that first beer out of the way ! and meet some people while you wait. I usually get in line with my car , then just get out grab a beer and hang out ! Gotta be there right away ! get the most of the tailgaiting experience . there is so much to take in once inside the gates it seems like its time to go in before you know it. oh and if you want beer , get it the night before because They dont sell beer in missouri on Sundays until like 9:30 .
    P.S .I have found that LC's BBQ is the best IMO . Its not a very fancy place but the food is amazing and its huge portions for your money ! Great burnt ends !http://www.10best.com/Kansas_City,MO...O/?tab=reviews

    Yeah, I agree YZILLA...my suggestion of 10:30 is a bit later than ideal, especially if wanting to join in the tailgating! Also, if wanting to visit the souviner fan stands before the rush...which a first timer may likely want to do. I would! haha :)
