It wasn’t long ago that Uptown went quiet after business hours. These days, the skyline is rapidly evolving, bringing new office buildings, restaurants, hotels and bars to keep the city of young transplants entertained after 5 p.m. Explore some of the city’s history with museums such as the Mint Museum, Gantt Center or Bechtler; immerse yourself in the nightlife; or take a moment in one of Uptown’s many green spaces and parks. There are plenty of kid-friendly activities, too, from Discovery Place to ImaginOn.
