Love the fountains

KC has amazing fountains. Love the ones by the Plaza. We never get tired of visiting them. I feels like if you are in a European country.

These fountains are one of the things that set Kansas City apart from every other US city. They are numerous and beautiful. It is like being able to visit a high end art gallery outside. Rome has NOTHING on KCMO when it comes to fountains!

There are beautiful fountains on every street. Made for an enjoyable walk back to the hotel after dinner.

We are fortunate to have had forward thinking people such as those who thought of building these Beautiful fountains....if you get the opportunity they are definitely worth spending some time enjoying their beauty.

Fountains are beautiful to see. That's it. It's not for children or teens. I visited back in 2008 and children were not playing in some and the fountains. I thought that would be fun for my 9 year old. That is no longer permitted..

I love being near water and these water sprouts and water falls were beautiful. We saw fountains that looked like they were sprouting from pots to flowing water over geometrically shaped pavers.

KC is the City of Fountains and we found them to be delightful! The weather was nice, so we were able to enjoy the majority of the fountains the city is famous for. Definitely worth seeing!

I love the fountains, for Kansas City is known for them, all sizes and shapes. I really enjoy the fall at the Plaza for the Art Fair is in twon and there are Jazz bands playing on the corners. Christmas lights are SUPERIOR, but the have a BIG ceremony on Thanksgiving with over 100,000 in attendance each year
