I hope you are still with me...because this is one of my favorites!
Just a couple minutes from our house is The Legends at Village West.
"The Legends at Village West is a 1.2 million square-foot open-air shopping and entertainment center and features 101 stores and restaurants." There is a Dave & Busters, the first T-Rex Cafe, the first Orange County Choppers Backfire BBQ (built by the Whiting Turner Contracting Company!), movie theater, bowling, and LOTS of shopping. I buy most of Mason's clothes at the Carter outlet. Next to all the shopping is the T-Bones baseball stadium and Kansas Speedway. They are currently building a soccer stadium for the Kansas City Wizards.
Next, there is another outdoor shopping center, Zona Rosa.
Indoor shopping is the Oak Park Mall. (Dillards-Disney Store-Crazy 8-Banana Republic-Godiva)
Right next to the Oak Park Mall is a Cheddar's...woOHoO!
Not Listed : Crown Center, Town Center Plaza,
Plus, there are the usual places and some more stores like Janie &Jack.
So save your money and come shopping with me! :)
