KC has lots of classic selfie spots, from the World War I Memorial to the dedicated selfie studio in Oak Park Mall. But there’s one place that tops them all—though it is slightly harder to get to. Kaw Point Park in KCK gives you the opportunity to kayak (or boat) to the middle of the confluence of the Missouri and Kansas rivers and take a truly glorious selfie with an amazing, unencumbered view of the downtown skyline to the east. To get there, go to the Kaw Point Park boat ramp and simply push off with your own kayak, or rent a kayak as a part of the Bridge Tour with KC Kayak and Canoe, which starts in Kaw Point Park.
