perfection – The Plaza is one of the best places in Kansas City. It is not only beautiful, but full of history!! Come a take a look!
Great Fun in the Great Outdoors – The Plaza... a favorite spot to shop, dine, enjoy the weather, and people watch! Unique and wonderful atmosphere from spanish-style architecture to beautiful fountains.
Must See – Wonderful place to go and visit. Shops everywhere and beautiful fountains and scenery. Variety of resaraunts from Fine Dining to Grab-N-Go. Especiaaly beautiful during the Christmas holidays with the lights.
Fun way to Kill an Evening – Visually Pleasing, Lots of Great shopping and eating, romance, movies, nightlife. Its a good place to get it all in one stop. If you are visiting town and can afford it, its a great place to stay as well.
Familiar Shops with Unique Flair – I regret only going to the Plaza once while I was in KC. Initially, I hesitated to go because I thought I should go with someone. I was so wrong. I had a great meal, shopped a bit (too bad there is no Tommy Bahama where I live) and enjoyed a nice outdoor band. There is no shopping experience quite like the Plaza, because of the Spanish setting and the convenient Sunday parking.
Fresh air, food and Shopping – The country club plaza allows shoppers to choose from some nationally known retailers and others that are local. I enjoy the plaza most around the holidays when it's postcard cold and winter white. There are so few options for open-air shopping and don't be fooled by 'town-center-plaza'.. what a bore of a place that is in comparison.
There is a reason... – The Plaza is the best of ANYTHING in KC because it is all it has. The Plaza is the only nice area in Kansas City, really. This is where you'd most likely take out-of-town visitors. There are very few options in this city. My father, who lives in the East Coast and has also visited almost every city in the US as well as the world was not very impressed with Kansas City when I took him for a tour. He agreed that the Plaza was the best place, even though it wasn't even that big of a deal. It is true. The Plaza gets "old." You can only go there so many times. It's really not anything special. Most of the stores and restaurants are all retail and chains, all of which you can find at shopping malls. Even so, the Plaza is still the BEST in Kansas City.
OVERRATED!! – Very Overrated. The Plaza is geared to the upper-middle class and yuppies. If you are not in business attire or look like you have money the service you get leaves a lot to be desired. People can be VERY snotty and uppity! Stores are too pricy. Would rather go to mall in Olathe. Minorities are not treated as well as others. A lot of room for improvement. The Plaza is beautiful to look at especially at Christmas time and that is the only positive thing I can say.
In a class by itself – World famous shopping venue. Great atmosphere with it's many fountains and eclectic buildings. Always something new. Be careful crossing the street since it is always busy.
visit it – My wife and I visit the Plaza whenever we fly into KC to visit family. They are difficult to find, but bargains exist. Visit for the atmosphere not for unique shops or good buys.
