Country Club Plaza
Kansas City’s international flair doesn’t stop at its beautiful fountains, as proven by this famed Spanish-inspired shopping district. Modeled after sister city Seville, Spain, this upscale 14-square-block entertainment district is filled with romantic Moorish architecture, outdoor artwork and intricate fountains.
Part international headquarters for Hallmark Cards, part entertainment complex, Crown Center is just one more example of KC’s exemplary creative spirit coming alive. A must for families, you’ll find fun and inspiration throughout the entire structure. There are hands-on art sessions at Kaleidoscope, three in-house theatres and an outdoor plaza which hosts numerous festivals and events in addition to the popular winter ice terrace.
The Crossroads Arts District
A haven for hipsters. An avenue for artists. And the perfect place to people-watch. Old warehouses now house locally owned boutiques, restaurants and a thriving arts scene. During First Fridays, you’ll find thousands flocking to the district to tour the 60 galleries and shops open until 9 p.m. on the first Friday of each month.
