Not only is the Country Club Plaza our one unique gems here in the Heartland but it's also the first true shopping center developed for the explosion of our automobile age. This was circa 1930. Not to be confused with shopping malls, the architecture of the "Plaza" is Spanish influenced, with Seville, Spain, being our Sister City. The Plaza area... More

I wouldn't waste my time going to the Country Club Plaza. There isn't anything special about it, the restaurants are overpriced and all the stores are chains that close at 7 PM (as a KC resident this is FRUSTRATING). Why bother coming here for stores that are found in your typical mall? Product selection is geared for the taste of... More

This is definitely a scenic area filled with high end shops and restaurants. Beautiful fountains draw crowds for photo opportunities. Always a number of people strolling. Great horse drawn carriage rides. Flower lined streets in the spring and summer. Buildings lined with colorful lights come on Thanksgiving night through the middle of January. I love this area.

The Plaza is a must when going to KC. From all the top shops, restaurants and Spanish architecture there is plenty to do. Sit at a patio and people watch.

A nice place for a stroll to see some interesting architecture. Years ago it was mainly locally owned businesses and possessed a charm that is now missing. Now it is a genuine slice of corporate America and doesn't really have any stores you can't find in every other mall in America.

Usually I write these reviews while traveling with my husband. But this is Home for me. We live nearby. I moved my business to offices on the Plaza a couple of years ago just because it was so beautiful. I love watching the trees bloom in the spring. I love the late afternoon music on the streetcorners in the summer.... More

Great place to go to just get away. Lots of restaurants,shopping, fountains and walkways by the river that flows through the Plaza area. I go here many Friday nights to get away.

Designed to mirror our sister city in Spain, the plaza is a Mecca for shopping, dinning and people watching. No high rises here to spoil the view or atmosphere, but instead, lots of fountains, tiled mosaics, tree shaded sidewalks, and horse drawn carriages. The Country Club Plaza is simply the best of Kanas City. The Plaza is framed by 5... More

The Country Club Plaza is very nice with a slight historic touch. Parking is plentiful and the shops have an assortment of items for all ages and budgets. Not to mention the dining is exceptional and for those who love movies, the theater is very nice. The Plaza is a have it all area in Kansas City for excellent shopping... More

This is a great place for window shopping, outdoor dining and strolling on a pleasant evening. There are a variety of dining choices, and mainly upscale shopping, but people watching is also a plus. The only thing lacking are public restrooms.
