If you want to see an array of fountains in a beautiful setting, go to the JC Nichols Country Club Plaza. The Fountain of the Four Rivers is one of my favorites.

Everywhere you go in this beautiful city you have a great chance of gunning into a fountain. They range from very classic to the most modern that shoot up from the ground.

I never realized how many fountains Kansas City has. It was so much fun looking at them and reading the plaques with the information on who created them and where they came from.

We did a self proclaimed fountain bike tour...stopped at all fountains and had our pic taken. Favorite is the Horse Fountain off of JC Nichols Pkwy
