WOW!

The fountains seem to be everywhere in KC and some of them are truly magnificent. Many of the fountains are very ornate.

Loved watching the fountains with the symphony plating. We were here during the day. I am sure it is even more exciting at night.

We visited several - our favorite was the one located at The Plaza. we strolled around it several times during our visit and enjoyed watching families and children splashing in the water from our hotel window.

Driving around the city you get glimpses of all the wonderful fountains - most with children playing in them to beat the heat. Loved it!
