One of the most beautiful places in the country. These fountains are so relaxing and beyond beautiful and the general atmosphere surrounding the area is something to behold especially in the evening and around the holidays.

They are all over the place. The more well ones worthy of stopping for closer viewing. They are all over the town. A few are modern, mostly European looking.

There are so many beautiful fountains in Kansas. I especially love the children's fountain in North Kansas City. Every time I drive past it and see the young girl tippy toeing in the water, it reminds me of my daughter and makes the smile.

Not sure where to get that info, BUT if you are looking for lunch or dinner just off the Plaza. Try Cafe Trio and ask to sit on the deck. You will have a great view of the JC Nichols Fountain and the Plaza.
