Why Shop at Country Club Plaza?

Country Club Plaza is located in midtown Kansas City, Missouri.

The neighborhood, referred to by locals as the Plaza, is anchored by a beautiful outdoor shopping district.

It has a rich history – it was established in 1922 and spans 15 blocks, being home to iconic and luxurious brands, as well as smaller local shops.

But there’s more to the Plaza than just shopping.

The area also boasts stunning architecture, including Spanish-inspired buildings, artwork in the form of sculptures and murals, and beautiful fountains, exemplifying Kansas City’s title as The City of Fountains.

So, why shop at the Plaza? It’s an experience that involves so much more than browsing stores – you can easily make an entire afternoon of exploring all there is to see on the Plaza.
