It isn't super special, but a good place if you are looking for something to eat. We stopped at A Streetcar Named Desire, and they had some pretty decent food there.

Walked around these shops from the skybridge between here and Union Station. WOW! Great selection of shops and eateries made us wish our stay was going to be longer. Friendly people, clean, bright & colorful....MUCH wider variety of shops than we expected and lots of fun! We especially enjoyed the transition area to the Westin hotel with the waterfall area....

I had it in my mind that Crown Center was this great place with so many cool stores and stuff to do, and we could spend our whole KC vacation there! But it was not like that. It is basically a shopping mall with an excellent food court and a few close-by activities for kids. There really aren't even that... More

We thought we could easily spend four hours here while my husband was doing something else, but we were bored after about two hours. We did Kaleidoscope and the Hallmark Visitors Center, and then we went to eat at the food court of the Crown Center. We walked around, but none of the shops appealed to us and we found... More

If you are staying at one of the hotels attached for a conference or weekend adventure, this is a nice place to shop to kill time during breaks. I would not really recommend it as a destination. Mostly restaurants that are closed during the evening (think food court). THere is a department store (Halls) that is actually pretty nice because... More

Nice for all weather conditions. Large variety of foods available, most of them much nicer than your usual mall food court selections. Nice variety of shops. Things to keep kids entertained.

Lots of stores and food. There was a candy shop that was especially neat. Lots of fudge that you could watch being made, and tons of other specialty candy items. All that we bought and tried were tasty. There is a large Crayola store that has a lot of neat items as well as things for the kids to play... More

Neat place to take the kids. We come here every time we are in KC. Great little place to take the kids to explore lots of things. Adults will like the shopping. Several kids shops.

This is a great place to take the family as there are lots and lots of activities for the kids to enjoy. The parking is a little bit of a challenge though.

It is a nice place to walk around and look. Pricey for the most part, but a good place to walk around on a hot day or while waiting for the baseball game to start. A short drive to the stadium.
