I was told that Rome is the only city in the world with more fountains than KC. The best time to enjoy them is late spring or early fall. Make sure you have a GPS if you are trying to do your own driving for it.

The fountains can be found several places, but the most beautiful ones are in the Plaza.

Fountains and boulevards define much of KC! Take a drive down Ward Parkway from the Country Club Plaza to 63rd!

“City of Fountains”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2012

I'm not sure exactly how many fountains KC has, but it is definitely something we are known for! I know there is a large number of fountains at the Country Club Plaza alone. Great architecture and history come with the fountains!

The many fountains give KC a sense of tranquility and elegance. There are so many of them I didn't see them all, but KC can be proud of having something no other city has in such quantity
