Country Club Plaza - Kansas City Shopping Destination

Developed in 1922, Kansas City's Country Club Plaza is considered the first shopping center in America built to accommodate the automobile. One of the most exquisite neighborhoods of Kansas City, the 14-square block Plaza is noted for its romantic Spanish-style architecture, dazzling fountains, wrought-iron encompassed courtyards, tree-lined boulevards, mosaics, statues and European art.
Kansas City Favorite Hotel 
The perennial favorite Kansas City destination was singled out for 6 different best of awards in the 2012 Kansas City Convention & Visitors Association awards competition: Favorite Place to Snap a Photo, Favorite Neighborhood, Favorite Festival (Plaza Art Fair), Favorite Holiday Tradition (Plaza Lights), Favorite Shopping District, and Favorite Hotel Under 300 rooms (The Raphael).

Unique Kansas City Setting -

Nestled against Brush Creek - Kansas City's river walk - the Plaza's tiled roofs, stucco exteriors and playful fountains complement hundreds of world-class boutiques, unique restaurants, and thriving nightspots with a charming, European atmosphere. Architecturally exquisite, Country Club Plaza is a shopping and entertainment paradise, featuring an elegant collection of more than 200 fashionable shops, boutiques, restaurants, outdoor cafés, entertainment venues and nightlife hotspots.

Enjoy romantic horse-drawn carriage rides, browse the shops and relax at one of the many wonderful eateries along the Plaza! Two nationally renowned art museums are located nearby: The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art and the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art.

Country Club Plaza Events -

The Plaza offers many exciting events throughout the year, including Plaza Live with free live music in May, and September's nationally recognized Plaza Art Fair, a celebration of art, music and food that showcases artists from around the country. The city's most spectacular event happens on Thanksgiving night, when the Plaza comes to life with the Plaza lighting ceremony.

The Plaza is transformed into a holiday fantasyland as thousands of colorful holiday lights are strung along the facades, rooftops and windows of the buildings and shops. All at once a switch is thrown, turning the entire Plaza into the largest celebration in Kansas City. The lights become part of the Plaza's persona through the second weekend of January.
