First off, happy birthday! Road trips are a great way to celebrate—just be sure to stock up on snacks and podcasts before hitting the road.
Kansas City, Missouri is about 550 miles from Dallas, Texas, making for an 8-hour drive. Your likely route will take you along I-35 for much of the way, so you don’t have a difficult drive ahead of you (just a long one).
Just be aware of a few things before heading out:
  • Road conditions—construction, bad weather, and accidents
  • Traffic—how busy the roads will be during the time you plan on driving
  • Your needs—meals, bathroom breaks, sleep
All of these factors can lead to arriving a few minutes early or several hours late. Be sure to take what information you can into consideration before booking a hotel room or making plans for when you arrive. Also, be prepared for conditions to change—8 hours is a long time to be driving.
