|Visit the College Basketball Experience during 50 Plus Social Outing on Jan. 20|
Letting participants feel completely immersed in the game of basketball is the goal of a social outing being offered in mid-October by the 50 Plus Department of the Johnson County Park & Recreation District.
This trip shares its name with the Kansas City, Mo., attraction it will visit - the College Basketball Experience located in Sprint Center. Visitors interact with the high-energy exhibits, and walk through the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame to learn about the coaches and players who have contributed to the game. Afterwards, the group will cross the street to the Power & Light District for lunch, where food costs will be on your own.
