City’s Best: The Country Club Plaza

It’s on every city visitor’s list and appears on every civic website, so it’s no surprise that our readers voted the Country Club Plaza as the City’s Best Shopping Destination.

An overwhelming number of votes went to perennial favorite, Country Club Plaza. While newer destinations such as Legends, Zona Rosa and Town Center Plaza court audiences in different areas of the metro with a blend of retail and dining destinations, the Plaza also has history and tradition in its favor.

While designed for the age of the automobile, the Plaza is a prime district to stroll with mobile smartphone in hand to seek out modern hip shops like Baldwin KC and Athleta and local restaurants like gastropub Gram & Dun. And cultural events like this year’s 82nd Annual Plaza Art Fair and the Plaza Holiday Lighting Ceremony keep Kansas Citians and tourists alike coming back to this timeless shopping destination.
