While there will continue to be plenty of outdoor activities in Kansas City that you and your family can participate in throughout August, there’s a chance that the summer heat might be keeping you inside. However, there are a number of great outdoor activities in Kansas City that will allow you to cool off while still letting you enjoy the outdoors. The following are a few places that we suggest you go this August in order to cool off from the August heat:

"What a great opportunity to work with Bill C. ! From the planning stages, to the finished outcome of our contract everything went very smoothly. Our plan to was to side and paint the exterior of our home and we got the most professional, quality and expertise from everyone that worked on the team. The exterior of our home looks totally new and different. I enjoy driving up to my new looking house.”

- Francine K.
Johnson County Siding & Window Co.
"Johnson County Siding & Windows did a fantastic job on our home. Rosie and his team kept us informed every step of the way and didn't hesitate to consult with us whenever they had questions (a benefit of us working at home). Not only were we extremely pleased with the results, but a separate contractor who did some different work for us said their work was the best he had ever seen. 100% satisfied. 100% recommended.”

"My wife and I decided to finally replace the original aluminum windows from the 1950’s with new fiberglass windows and we are thrilled with the results. While we are impressed with the windows themselves, we are most happy with Johnson County Siding & Window company.”
