How You Can Usher In Warmer Weather With Luxury Apartments at The Grand

We can all agree that Kansas City is a great place to live – but winter lasted a little too long this year. Thankfully, warmer days for our luxury apartments are just around the corner.

Even though our new apartments in downtown KC have everything you need to feel at home 24/7, it’s still a good idea to get out and experience our beautiful city in the spring. If you’re new to the area or are looking for unique ways to spend time in Kansas City, check out these springtime events that are perfect for a breath of fresh air.

Nelson Atkins Museum of Art Is Only Minutes Away From Our Luxury Apartments

Nelson Atkins Museum of Art is one of Kansas City’s most popular attractions. Even better, it’s only about a 10 minute drive from our luxury apartments. This enormous museum is filled with gorgeous fine art from all over the world and offers incredible art tours – but you can do so much more! Check out how you can spend the day at Nelson Atkins:
