With more than 1 million visitors each season, it's not hard to understand why Longview Lake has become one of the most popular summer destinations in the Kansas City area. Friends and neighbors are obviously spreading the good news -- and increasing the number of annual guests who head to Longview for everything from power boating and water skiing to fishing, golf, swimming, hiking, softball games and family picnics. Opened in 1986, Longview's 930-acre lake -- featuring a 1-acre beach -- and 4,852-acre site are ideal for active group outings as well as laid-back private gatherings in one of the picnic shelters (several are designated exclusively for corporate/group gatherings). Concessions are available, but coolers are not allowed. No dogs are allowed at the beach.

Former president Harry S. Truman spent much of his childhood in Kansas City on his grandparents' farm. In fact, his mother often said this farm is where Truman got his common sense. The house, which was built in 1894 for Truman's maternal grandmother, served as his residence from 1906 to 1917 when he worked the farm before leaving for the war. The estate is now owned and operated by the National Park Service. The 5.25-acre farm includes the house and several outbuildings. Admission is free.
