Kansas City: Country Club Plaza
One of the hi-lights of our recent visits to Kansas City was the trip to Country Club Plaza - a lovely, historic shopping center about four miles south of Downtown.

Kansas City is known for its many beautiful fountains - supposedly the most in any US city - and many of them are in Country Club Plaza. There is also some great art throughout the center. Originally built in 1922 on what was once a dumping ground and hog farm, the Plaza sits on 55 acres that were acquired, parcel by parcel, by JC Nichols.

What Nichols built there was revolutionary. The first master-planned outdoor shopping center designed to accommodate a new invention - the automobile. Built with a Spanish theme, the architecture of Country Club Plaza recalls both the US Southwest and some of Europe's most beautiful capitals. It's an unexpected but welcome surprise in a city in the Midwest.
