As I mentioned the other day, we spent this past weekend in Kansas City, MO for a getaway weekend! We went for a friend’s birthday party, but also turned it into a family adventure since I don’t have that many days left here in St. Louis with the family before I head off to college. Thanks to Instagram and some recommendations from friends, we not only hit some of the typical tourist spots but also some local’s favorites as well! Only having three days to cover the city, I feel like we did quite the impressive job!
Country Club Plaza
is such a great place to shop! Not only are there typical stores you’d find at the mall like American Eagle and J.Crew, there are also some really amazing high end fashion houses like Valentino and Burberry that are in the Plaza as well. Live musicians, painters, and all kinds of street performers fill the streets to create an amazing atmosphere that clearly attracted tourists and locals alike. I could definitely spend a ton
more time here if given the opportunity!
I loved spending time walking around the grounds of the Nelson Atkins Art Museum! The lawn sculptures are such a well known attraction, but it just doesn’t seem right to go to KC and miss the opportunity to take pictures with them in person!
I just love a good shopping center and I love it even more when that shopping center is basically a little city within itself. Zona Rosa is a little bit of a drive from downtown KC but well worth it. There are so many shopping opportunities, restaurants and other fun things to do in Zona Rosa…and the layout is just the coolest thing! Definitely check it out on your next trip to KC! Photo of Zona Rosa found here…
Here are some more photos from our fun weekend! I just love Kansas City! Definitely want to head back for another weekend soon to see even more sights (I’m definitely trying to grab up some tickets to the October concert to see Enrique Iglesias in KC so I can have another excuse to come back to this incredible city, haha)!
Have a happy Wednesday, lovelies!
xoxo & much love,
