Crossroads & Downtown Kansas City

If you have taken a jaunt through downtown Kansas City lately, you’ve bound to have noticed something serious is going on in the Crossroads district. Disheveled buildings have turned into hip art galleries, while run-down businesses have morphed into trendy restaurants. From the Sprint Center and amazing lofts to First Friday--see what makes the Crossroads and Downtown Kansas City so great.


Just north of downtown Kansas City lies the 'Northland' as locals call it. The Northland consists of communities that lie north of the Missouri River and include areas such as North Kansas City, Parkville, Liberty, Gladstone, Claycomo, Riverside, Weatherby Lake, Lake Waukomus and Smithville.

Country Club Plaza

The Country Club Plaza (or 'The Plaza' as locals call it) is a 15 block district of over 150 fabulous shops, great restaurants, bars, entertainment and residential living. From local favorites to high fashion retailers and home decor, the Plaza is Kansas City's favorite place to be.
