Of course, we don’t want you to shop until you drop, but it’s truly possible with the distinct shopping districts available in Kansas City. The city’s shopping areas offer fashion’s favorite labels, fun and funky gifts, high style and affordable prices. But what sets Kansas City apart as a shopping destination is the experience each district creates for the visitor, making finding the perfect gift fun for everyone! Whatever your tastes, we have it all in Kansas City.
Downtown Kansas City
The Crossroads Arts District for unique stocking stuffers like handmade stationery from Hammerpress or artisanal chocolates from Christopher Elbow. In the Power & Light District, look to Envolve for chic women’s styles or shop eight stores in one at The Garment District—a hip fashion collective with a bar nestled inside.
A little further north of downtown and straight out of the mind of Dr. Seuss, City Market transforms itself for Whoville Holidays, a yuletide celebration featuring The Grinch, art activities and a Cindy Lou Who look-alike contest.
After a long afternoon shopping the avenues of downtown KC, it’s time for a light meal. Venture off the beaten path to the Westside area. Popular picks range from small plates at Lill’s on 17th and savory crepes at Chez Elle, to farm-to-table fare at The Westside Local.
