Inspired by its sister city, Seville, Spain, the Plaza is an architectural beauty in Kansas City. Filled with more fountains than you can count, hence KC’s name: The City of Fountains. At the Plaza you’ll find many places to shop, restaurants and coffee shops, some parks to hangout, hotels, and Brush Creek. During September, it hosts an annual Art Festival. The night of Thanksgiving, it’s lit up with The Plaza Lights until the new year. Plus, parking is free

If you happen to be visiting during the first weekend of the month, check out First Fridays at the Crossroads! This neighborhood hosts many art galleries (and several tasty bites to eat at!) that are open to all on every first friday of the month. During warmer months, it's usually bustling with people walking around, and artists selling their art from paintings, photography, jewelry, and more! Artists also include musicians, singers and dancers in the street! We love coming out on this day and it's always a joy for all ages to enjoy this artistic community!

The BEST pupusas in town, in our opinion! Come for central american foods! This restaurant is owned by a Guatemalan family so a little different from Salvadoreño pupusas.

Art Festivals

If you're visiting the city during warmer months, look up if there will be an art festival while you're in town! Local and non-local artists come together outdoors to setup their art for sale. An inspiring way to pass the time. Some include Plaza Art Fair, and Brookside Art Festival, among others!

Farmer's Market at the River Market

Held Fri-Sun every weekend at the River Market (most common in warmer months-fewer vendors in the colder season). Friday and early Saturday is the best time to go.
