    The Plaza

    The Kansas City Country Club Plaza is one of the must see areas of Kansas City. This place has a little bit of something for everyone. There are multiple shops from low to high end prices. There are numerous great restaurants and coffee shops. You can catch a movie, stop in a pub/bar or bookstore, or even catch a boat ride on brush creek or a horse drawn carriage ride through the streets. Tennis courts are located right off the plaza. There are multiple hotels lining the plaza as well including the Ritz. This area has beautiful parks and fountains. The plaza really becomes packed at Thanksgiving. Every building is decked out in lights for the holiday season and the turning on ceremony is very popular but crowded. Numerous festivals are held on the plaza streets during the year. This area is very popular for romantic dates.

    Spend some time in Country Club Plaza
    This area was designed after Seville, Spain which is very different architecture for the midwest. It's really beautiful and there is a lot of great shopping and dining establishments. They have a great website that outlines all of the shops, restaurants, etc that are in the area - www.countryclubplaza.com

    Toy and Miniature Museum of Kansas City is amazing.
    There are hundreds of antique doll houses. Some of them have been built with such precision that they are amazing. Imagine a doll house with gutters, the gutters even have rust spots, the down spout for the gutters has a bird sitting on it, the bird is looking at a spider in a tiny cobweb. There is so much detail you can spend a long time looking at each one.

    Kansas City hosts one of the world's first shopping centers, Country Club Plaza, known generally as the Plaza. Built in the early 20th century, and modeled on the townscape of Seville, Spain, the Plaza hosts theatres, upscale shops, and restaurants, all outdoors in a charmingly walkable environment. Add intricate tilework and bubbling fountains, blue skies and cute girls, and you're got yourself a first-rate shopping district.

    Public parking is available. Great area to explore on foot. There are many unique shops and restuarants. The architechture is beautiful. Kansas City is noted for it's fountains and Country Club Plaza has one of the best. It is beautifully lit during the Christmas season.

    The Churchills

    by basstbn Updated Nov 6, 2003

    Winston Churchill was much admired by the hard-working, tough-minded inhabitants of America's central states. Like many of them, he spoke candidly and didn't always "dilly-dally" around with niceties. He got to the point.

    Here, a relaxed Winston and Clementine Churchill are memorialized in bronze in the Country Club Plaza area.

    I haven't seen too much of Kansas City, (I have only been there 3 times for very short periods) but I can say that while visiting Kansas City you must go shopping on the Plaza. It is so much fun and there is so much to do and see. You should definatly look into spending a day walking up and down the Plaza.

    Visit the Plaza for shopping, dining, and walking around.
    The Plaza is considered the oldest shopping center in the United States. It is very pedestrian-friendly and has an excellent mix of stores, restaurants, hotels, and entertainment options. The Plaza is within walking distance of the Nelson Art Gallery, the Kemper Museum of Modern Art, the Missouri Repertory Theatre.

    Bundle up with your honey or your kiddies and take a ride in a horse-drawn carriage to view the color of the Christmas decorations.

    Carriage ride through the Country Club Plaza.
    My preference would be to ride during a falling snow under the Plaza Christmas lights.

    Country Club Plaza seems more like a part of some European city than a part of KC. Great area for shopping and dining. It is a bit more upscale than Westport or the River Market.
