In the past decade, this city has been doing a lot of growing and developing. In March of 2012, it was named by Forbes Magazine as one of America's best downtown areas, with beautiful and interest sights, a great arts scene and rich in culture. KC is a city for everyone, since it's so diverse and has something about it that most people will like. It's also one of the more understated cities in the US, and you should consider putting it on your travel goals list if you haven't already. Whether you are planning on getting there by car, train, bus or plane, you won't have any trouble with your oxygen therapy needs, if you bring along one of our dependable portable oxygen concentrator rentals.
Kansas City's public transportation isn't as readily available or as developed, like in many other big cities. This is because Kansas City is so easy to get around by driving in your own vehicle or rental car. However, if you do find yourself needing to take a bus, you will be able to board one no problem with your portable oxygen concentrator.
The only thing you will need to do is make sure you have plenty of battery power to see you through any set-backs, and to allow you the freedom of going anywhere in the city without having to stop to charge your portable concentrator every few hours. If you are flying into Kansas City, you will need to notify your airline a few weeks ahead of time, so they can tell you how much battery power you should have when you board. One big perk – your concentrator rental and its accessories don't count toward your carry one limit.
It doesn't take very long to get from downtown KC, to the outer areas where you can get some fresh air. If you plan on doing some outdoor activities, plan to come sometime in the fall for the best weather. Spring has nice temperatures, but it also rains a lot during this time of year. September and October in Kansas City are less humid and sunnier, with average temperatures around 80 and the high 70s.
You don't really need to plan on going out of your way to see some of the things that Kansas City is famous for. There are around 200 fountains in this city, earning it the nickname “City of Fountains”. The monument at the WWI Museum stands tall, and you should definitely pay it a visit. The Kansas City Zoo is very large and a great place for people of all ages.
As you move through the crowds along bumpy sidewalks and even grass or gravel, you will notice that the wheel cart that came with your concentrator is light and easy to take just about anywhere. If you have a smaller, lighter concentrator, carrying it at your side or on your back will be easy with the comfortable carry bag that comes with it.
There are more than just BBQ restaurants here, even though KC is famous for its BBQ cuisines, you will find plenty of diversity in the way of food. Seva Cuisine of India is ranked high as one of the best Indian restaurants in town, and Fogo de Chao features great South American dishes.
