I wouldn't waste my time going to the Country Club Plaza. There isn't anything special about it, the restaurants are overpriced and all the stores are chains that close at 7 PM (as a KC resident this is FRUSTRATING).

Why bother coming here for stores that are found in your typical mall? Product selection is geared for the taste of the local population, too, so expect expected and conservative.

Oh, and good luck with parking.

This is definitely a scenic area filled with high end shops and restaurants. Beautiful fountains draw crowds for photo opportunities. Always a number of people strolling. Great horse drawn carriage rides. Flower lined streets in the spring and summer. Buildings lined with colorful lights come on Thanksgiving night through the middle of January. I love this area.

The Plaza is a must when going to KC. From all the top shops, restaurants and Spanish architecture there is plenty to do. Sit at a patio and people watch.

A nice place for a stroll to see some interesting architecture. Years ago it was mainly locally owned businesses and possessed a charm that is now missing. Now it is a genuine slice of corporate America and doesn't really have any stores you can't find in every other mall in America.

Usually I write these reviews while traveling with my husband. But this is Home for me. We live nearby. I moved my business to offices on the Plaza a couple of years ago just because it was so beautiful. I love watching the trees bloom in the spring. I love the late afternoon music on the streetcorners in the summer. The warm days in the fall are great for shopping and having drinks at sunset on the restaurant patios. And the winter -- well, where else can you find sidewalks totally cleared of snow within hours of the snowfall's end? Parking is generally not a problem. There are food options everywhere! Noontime respites in nearby stores remind you why you are working so hard!


Any complaints? Not really. I do wish there were more locally-owned shops to temper all the national brands. A few exist here, but not many.
