    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.

    The KC Zoo is AWESOME! My 3 year old loves it, and if you're looking for something a little less pricey and less time-consuming, Deanna Rose Farmstead in Overland Park has free admission and is much smaller and very interactive. There are great picnic areas at both.

    Parasailing obviously requires a large body of water like a lake or ocean, either of which Kansas City doesn't really boast (ocean being a definite nyet). Not sure I understand your ski question fully.
