Always a treat to see the fountains on the Plaza and throughout the city. Many flow blue with KC Royals wins. I drive by one or a dozen on a regular basis.

I take pictures of all the fountains I visit. Are you an Eagle Scout? There's an Eagle Scout fountain in K.C. Big one, little ones, they're all fun to visit. Do you like geocaching? Many of the fountains have geocaches nearby.

Lots of fountains for sure. Be sure to see them in the summertime of course. Most of them are very ornate and beautiful.

It is a cool place to stop and see if you are over that way, but otherwise it's not worth going out of your way for it.

It's called the City of Fountains for good reason as there seems to be one around every corner. Some are plain and simple, others are more elaborate, and others are real tourist attractions, magnificent fixtures which become magnets for photographers.

it seems that Kansas City has water spurting just about any where...there was even a small fountain in the parking lot of our low end hotel. but not many of them were special or interesting. We did encounter an interesting one hidden away behind some trees in a tiny park: the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fountain - it featured a set... More

Kansas City is the city with the second most public fountains in the world, only Rome has more. It is fun to drive around the city to check out the fun and diversity of these fountains. Take the tour on a hot summer day.

The Kansas City fountains add so much to the Plaza experience. It simply wouldn't be the same without them. I have truly enjoyed them for years!

So many great sights to see and fountains are fun. You can find one almost every place you go. We went fountain hunting.
