The city of fountains lives up the name. They are all different and hard to find a spot without being able to see at least one.

Seeing the beautiful fountains brought us back to the days we lived in K.C. What a great addition to the landscape of buildings!

We have always heard about the famous Kansas City Fountains. During our recent trip we visited a lot of them and WOW! Wish we lived next to one of them!

There are a lot of fountains in Kansas City, and they compose one of the most pleasant features. Set in parks, plazas, shopping areas. They provide a great break from the city landscape.

There is a map available on the fountains. Look at them and check which way the light is coming from so you know the best time to shoot. (Go to the Arabia museum. Fascinating look at the past)
