tour Kansas part 3

Now let's head to downtown.
Part of this will be in Kansas City, Kansas
and most of it will be Kansas City, Missouri.
(Which for all my TN's like Bristol, TN and VA)
We live only a couple minutes from the Missouri line.

Heath works downtown (Kansas City, Missouri).
He drives about 25 minutes to work everyday. 
He works in an office in this building.

He works right next to Union Station.
"At its peak during WWII, an estimated one million travelers passed through the Station." Today, it has been renovated with fine restuarants, shops, Kansas City collections, many exhibits, and much more.

A couple minutes from his work is the Country Club Plaza.
The Counrty Club Plaza was the country's first shopping center
(designed in 1922).
This place is beautiful!
"The Plaza is an outdoor museum of romantic Spanish architecture and European art."
There are many restaurants (PF Changs, Cheesecake Factory,
McCormick & Schmick's)
and many shops (Armani Exchange, The Apple Store, The North Face).
 The Country Club Plaza will be decorated with all kinds of lights during Christmas...very pretty!
Kansas City is known as the City of Fountains. There are over 200 fountains listed.
Makes you smile :) lol

Downtown also has

  • The Power and Light District (which has a lot of events, concerts, and nightlife activities)

  • Sprint Center for concerts and other events (We saw Tim McGraw and Jason Aldean)

  • The World Market at Westport
