My plan was to visit a couple of shops and maybe stop for a snack. It was a very enjoyable stroll through the area. There are pieces of original placed in many spots throughout the Plaza. The buildings are outlined with Xmas lights until January 12. It gives the area a festive feel. I want to give a shout out to the friendly and helpful staff of every store I went into. It is a wonderful feeling to have a shop person actually chat and help you find the article you are looking for. It is almost an old fashioned thing to do. I am sure the friendliness will last after the lights are off for this year. I will definitely return there

The Plaza encompasses several blocks with an array of both chain and unique businesses, stores, high end restaurants and casual coffee shops. Fountains and sculptures decorate the streets. If you enjoy shopping, or window shopping, the Plaza is a lot of fun.

Today I was almost attacked and chased by a homeless woman on Central by the Forever 21 store at about 1 pm. I had to run away and she chased me trying to hit me. I was asked for money from protesters and I didn’t have any and they became angry screaming at me. I was told it was a safe area and this was an awful experience. Im completely shaken and sad.

We have t been to the Plaza for many years and probably won’t return. It’s turned into a playground for teenagers with large packs of teenage kids walking around and crowding the sidewalks. We were shocked how few middle aged and older couples were walking around on a beautiful Spring evening on the Plaza. It seems to have been taken over by kids now.

This is simply one of the best shopping areas in the US. It’s about to get even better because they are going to add a Nordstrom‘s in the next year or so. If you’re visiting the Kansas City area this is a must. In December and January the Plaza Christmas lights are amazing.

Parking is a bit challenging. No public restrooms. We were trying to kill time between games, but there is also not really anywhere to just wit and hang out. Unless you are on a mission amd know exactly what stores you want to visit, I would stay away.

We go to Country Club Plaza often for dining and shopping. This past weekend we went for a one night staycation. We had a wonderful weekend enjoying all the Plaza has to offer. We will be back, many, many times to come.

The Christmas Plaza lights are amazing! Friendly people and great stores! I rec. the Raphael hotel for a cocktail as well. The stores are varied so everyone can find something they love. There is a map to assist you with finding that great place on your list:)

We stayed close to Country Club Plaza when visiting Kansas City. We walked to it several times. They have many high end shops, but a lot were closed during our visit.

There are also several great restaurants that were open.

The architecture is pretty interesting. There are some nice fountains nearby. Don’t forget to walk along the river. There are parking ramps nearby.

As a child going to the Plaza was a big deal. We always got dressed up. The majority of the stores were high end and locally owned...Hall's and Swanson's were the most memorable. Visiting the Plaza now makes me very sad. Classic Cup and Tivol are the only things left from my childhood. It seems as if over half of the stores are vacant. The ones that are there are all chains. The Plaza has always been top of the list to visit when I travel back to Kansas City. Unfortunately not any longer.

Hi Jamie - We are so sorry to hear about the Plaza making you feel sad when visiting. Although not all the stores have stayed the same since your childhood, we have lots of stores (local and national) that help make our property truly unique. We hope you'll stop by for future visits and check out Made in KC Marketplace or KC Style Haus - just two of our local tenants that shoppers love.
