- If one place could illustrate the heartbeat of Kansas City, it would be the Plaza. Known as the first mall in the world, the outdoor district is peppered with 180 shops, 38 restaurants, numerous hotels and several entertainment venues. The Plaza abounds with activity almost around the clock. Spanish Colonial architecture and fine art, combined with the many fountains for which Kansas City is known, create an atmosphere unparalleled anywhere else in the city. During the holidays, the district glows with the twinkle of millions of Christmas lights.
