    B&B Theater in Lee's Summit is a great place for kids and adults! They have a screenplay, which is when the kids get to play at a playground area before the movie starts. My daughter absolutely loves it. However, my favorite is the Max 4D theater! With Max 4D you get to experience the seats moving and the wind blowing while watching the movie. Such a great experience! My daughter and I just love this place!

    The staff and pharmacist at the CVS 3rd St location are the most patient, kind, and helpful staff I have seen in a while. Not only are they short-staffed, but they are extremely busy. They still managed to have a smile and help everyone with whatever they needed. Not only were they kind and helpful to me, but to everyone who came to their counter. I will continue to frequent this store.
    CVS is located at 621 SW 3rd St, in Lee's Summit, and their phone number is (816) 524-5084.

    Wow, there were several couples and families in front of us waiting to be seated. The wait was only 15 minutes. We got a booth by the window to watch the passersby and to see all the Christmas decor along the street. The service was great, fast, and comforting. I had the breakfast burrito and I don't regret it. Visit the website below for location and hours of operartion

    I specifically want to brag about two ladies in particular. The two girls that do nails towards the back of the salon not only have some of the best talents when it comes to nails, but they have such fun personalities. I personally use Tran and she has never disappointed me, I won't let anyone else touch my nails besides these two ladies now. They are also located next door to an amazing coffee shop; get some coffee and get your nails done!

    It's our favorite season! Pumpkin season. Well, I have to admit my co-host Dani Riley with Summit Funding and I did not miss a roll when we were able to do a tour of Kansas City's best pumpkin patch. You see Faulkners Ranch has been family owned for years and offers some of the best fun you can have at a pumpkin patch. From picking your favorite pumpkin to the petting zoo with goats, bulls, llamas, cows, rabbits, and more. You won't miss the opportunity to run through the corn maze, jump on the hay bales, or in the corn with your family and friends. It's just one fall fun festival place for sure. So many memories will be made that you will come back year after year to continue creating new traditions. Oh, and on your way out don't forget to hit the gift shop for a souvenir or some take-home treats like apple butter or pumpkin doughnuts.

    Want to play some games you don't see that often anymore? Arcade alley is the place for you. The whole place is full of vintage arcade games such as Pacman, pinball, skeeball, and so much more. The one word to describe this place is nostalgia, it will definitely bring you back in time to before games were on your phone or tv screen. It is also a bar and has many TVs if you are trying to enjoy a game and socialize. There is also a room that can be rented out for parties, meetings, etc.

    The Vogue Theatre was a staple in Lee's Summit a few decades ago. The theatre was remodeled in 1949 to actually become the Vogue Theatre as it was known as other monikers before. However, now in present day, the Vogue is not actually an operating theatre. It is an apartment complex with retail on the first level. They keep the theatre theme on the outside of the complex though for a nostalgic touch. You can find the Vogue in Downtown Lee's Summit.

    If you are a fan of brunch, I would highly recommend you try out Shack. The restaurant is located around the Summit Fair and is open until 2:00 p.m. daily. They have an extensive menu with many varieties of breakfast and lunch to choose from. Shack has a shabby, chic feel inside to it. Customers are allowed to write their names pretty much all over the restaurant walls and doors for a unique feeling inside. This place is a must try in my opinion.

    Love, Coffee is a coffee shop in Lee's Summit that is a sit-in and drive-thru. This is a quaint coffee shop with minimal seating inside but there is a lovely outside area with seating as well for those wanting to enjoy their coffee outdoors. Don't want to sit inside or out but need your coffee quick? Try out their drive-thru. The staff is very friendly and they also have some pastries as well if you want a quick bite. Enjoyed my experience when I was there and would recommend you try it out as well.
