Take your solo travels down to the Crossroads Arts District, where sculptures, paintings, ironworks, pottery, photography and more abound in KC’s cultural mecca. On First Fridays, an estimated 10,000 people come to explore dozens of artisan spaces and distinctive art galleries, dine at out-of-this-world restaurants and food trucks and enjoy energetic street performances.
The West Bottoms, a former industrial and stockyard area, delights with a sundry of antique shops, clothing and home décor boutiques, restaurants and music—perfect for a little “you time.” Head to the Country Club Plaza—home to 15 blocks of laid-back and upscale restaurants, shopping, live outdoor and lounge entertainment and other unique entities—to experience a true KC gem.
In the heart of Downtown, the Power & Light District boasts nine blocks of exciting bars and restaurants, unique local shops and lively entertainment venues. The centerpiece is KC Live!, an outdoor concert stage featuring local, regional and national bands performing year-round.
