What
would you like to do outside? Hiking? There are closer opportunities in
Kansas than the first answer, which assumes you'll only be in Missouri.
For hiking, the fabulous Flint Hills. Go to tnc.org and search on
"konza". Read about the trails and these beautiful hills. 120 miles
from KC. On the left of the Konza page is a link to the Tallgrass
Prairie Preserve, another hiking area within reach. 130 miles
from KC. This location has a wonderful 3-story rock barn and smaller rock ranch house. A search online for these will bring you more photos.

Ice Skating is a great outdoor activity at Hallmark's Crown Center and the area is beautiful and romantic.
Speaking of romantic-The Fountains at the Country Club Plaza and the entire Plaza area all lit up for Christmas is the thing to see that time of year. Hint-Park on Main north of the Plaza and walk down-it will be busy and you want to walk around the Plaza or take a horse-drawn carraige ride. Dress warm enough to be outside awhile and take your break at Starbucks-they have a patio area so you can people-watch and enjoy the lights.
Downtown Lee's Summit is lit-up and beautiful as well.
Christmas in the Park off Raytown Road and Longview Road is an hour long drive-through of Christmas lighting with great visual fun.
See the mansions of Mission Hills all lit too.
Nice town to be in in November

Too bad you'll be in Missouri at the tail-end of the fall-foliage shift. (Visit http://mdc.mo.gov/nathis/seasons/fall/ for current foliage reports.) Just within range, head southeast to Lake of the Ozarks State Park for hiking, cave tours, and some fishing. A little over 200 miles from Kansas City, Mark Twain National Forest, sprawling across the scenic Ozark Plateau, is definitely worth a look, too.
